Advance Wars Gets Unofficial Sequel in Tiny Metal

It has been almost a decade since Nintendo and Intelligent Systems released Advance Wars: Days of Ruin for the Nintendo DS. This void in the turn-based-strategy-with-cute-troops genre has been poorly filled by third party developers looking to recreate the past. We’ve got another challenger to fill the TBSWCT hole in our hearts. The development group Area35 are working on Tiny Metal for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows and macOS. They’re promising a single-player campaign that lasts eight-to-ten hours.

I actually like the 3D-toy style of Tiny Metal a bit more than Advance Wars, but it’s good that they’ve found something a little different than the 2D perspective that is typical to Advance Wars games.

The pre-release gameplay footage above is promising, here’s hoping that Area35 hits the mark when the game is released later this year.
