Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp is undergoing maintenance. Yes, you read that correctly. The indefinitely delayed Nintendo exclusive has scheduled maintenance on August 16, 2022.
Twitter account NinStatusBot shared maintenance information for the TBA’d Advance Wars game.

NinStatusBot went on to mention that the “maintenance is part of a group of 20 titles that appears to be undergoing a server software update.” Adding, “It is unlikely that this maintenance can be used to predict when this title will be released.”
Nintendo delayed Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp indefinitely earlier this year due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. It was originally scheduled to release on April 8, 2022. Since then, a reiteration of the game’s TBA status Nintendo reported during a financial report is the last we’ve heard.
Twitter user @killetheth shared a series of screenshots back in April 2022, claiming to have access to the unreleased game. However, Nintendo put the kibosh on that and revoked the player’s access.

I have a strong feeling that Nintendo won’t release Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp this year. There’s not much time left and Nintendo’s already had a fairly strong year. Plus, the crisis in Ukraine persists. To be fair, that’s a great reason to hold off on releasing the game. Nintendo is in a great position with the upcoming games line-up sans Advance Wars. While I would love to play it, delaying it is the right call from a public relations standpoint.
Do you think Nintendo will release the strategy game in 2022? Let us know in the comments below!
