The studio behind two of the best-known turn based strategy games on Nintendo systems is once again interesting in turning its hand to the stylized, modern world of Advance Wars. Fresh from the launch of the latest Fire Emblem game, Fire Emblem Awakening, Intelligent Systems project manager Masahiro Higuchi gave an interview in which (among other topics such as the suggestion that perma-death might have been removed and a discussion on the lack of character feet) he stated:
“Well, whether it’s Fire Emblem or the Advance Wars, we never want to put an end to any series we’re involved with. We always want to make games that provide a lot of fun to gamers, so if we have the chance, we’d certainly like to make another [Advance Wars] title.”
The news should excite strategy fans, given that it’s been five years since the last Advance Wars title, Days of Ruin (or Dark Conflict if you’re European) came onto the scene. It was a fantastic experience and it’s a great shame it’s failed to be followed up so far. Here’s hoping the developers carry on their efforts in future.
