Game Profile

Meteor storms, earthquakes and tidal waves devastate the Earth, causing
90 percent of the world’s population to perish. The sky has been blocked out by ash, yielding little sunlight. In a world ravaged by a domino effect of catastrophic events, those lucky enough to survive are divided into warring factions fighting to drive the direction of a new civilization.

As the CO of an army you must defeat the enemy army by either destroying all their units or taking over there HQ building, although dependant on the stage there could be further rules of victory. Each stage brings a new map, and challenge, as the CO of the army you will need to take control of your units and understand there strengths and weaknesses in order to attack the enemy efficiently.

Strategy fans will rejoice over the long-awaited inclusion of Wi-Fi play, which adds depth and re-playability. Use Nintendo WiFi Connection and battle against a friend halfway across the world, or use the map editor to create, trade and battle on your own custom maps.


  • More than 60 exciting single player missions.
  • Within Story Mode, players can play through an additional 38 Trial stages. Although independent of the Story Mode, the Trial stages add much to the game play challenge and depth.
  • New strategies also emerge by way of the Command one. For the first time, a Commanding Officer can enter one of the units, and by doing this, he or she creates a Command Zone.
  • Create your own maps and share them with your friends or upload them to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

this was a great upgrade on the DS. This game got me hooked on the DS in the first place, well this series did. Had to follow it back to it's great beginings on the GBA, Orignally Advance Wars and AW Black Hole. Can't wait for an iteration on ther 3ds. The company, Intelligent Systems, also created it's sister game Fire Emblem, almost as good.
