Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp delayed indefinitely
Nintendo has announced that Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp has been delayed indefinitely, due to what the publisher refers to as 'recent world events' - assuredly the conflict currently ongoing around Ukraine. The strategy game was originally set to release on April 8 for Nintendo Switch.
The announcement was made via the official Nintendo Twitter account. With uncertainty surrounding these events, we'll have to stay tuned for an update on the game's release.

As noted by RPGFan, this is remarkably the second time an Advance Wars game has been delayed due to real-life political strife, with the European release of the original game delayed in 2001 due to the September 11 terrorist attacks.
Last month we got a new trailer and screenshots for the strategy game, showcasing voiced commanders, new features like fast-forward & turn reset, and new modes like a high score War Room & Design Room.
