Can't say I like the graphics, but I did love those games and dual strike.

I don't mind paying a premium price if it's a good quality re-make.

These are pretty big games that'll take 30-40 hours just to get through the main campaign, and you could easily end up sinking hundreds of hours into the extras and the multiplayer.

To my surprise, this is set to be pretty damn big at around 11GB!

My guess is that animated cutscenes may be the cause of the bloated size (and there would have to be a lot of it too!), because I can’t imagine that the game proper would gobble up so much data.

@Silly_G Also those animated portraits of the generals can gobble up some space.

Bamm!

I've watched some of the footage again and I've changed my mind about the art style, I prefer it to the original now. Those animated character portraits in particular are gorgeous.

I had/have both Advance Wars 1 & 2 on the GBA. Unfortunately I lost my AW1 card somehow, so I'm really looking forward to this remake and playing 1 again. I think I preferred AW1 out of the pair of them, but mainly because I completed it, whereas I got stuck on the final battle of AW2
The graphics looked great to me on the Treehouse, and the online play sounds intriguing. May make NSO membership worth it!

Game of the show for me, even if a tad expensive. I am hoping for single switch multi as well as online; I am hesitating to call it "hot seat" since you'd be passing the system around, but you know what I mean ;P

$60 for 2 games with a pretty extensive visual overhall seems like a pretty fair price to me. Much fairer than Skyward Sword HD, which should be $40 max.

Been meaning to dive into this series for some time through the Wii U VC and just hadn't yet. I'm glad this is coming to the Switch and will certainly pick it up. Though so far I think I prefer the pixel art I've seen for the original games vs. what we saw in that trailer. Not that the new style looks bad by any means. Honestly, as with most art styles I'm not fully sold on, it'll probably grow on me.

I think this art style looks a hell of a lot better than Fire Emblem Three Houses, tbh. It is a simpler game though, granted.

I actually agree with this, yeah.

Honestly I've been thinking about it...considering how the COs in Advance Wars never seem to care about the actual soldiers, it kinda fits way better than they look more like toys now.

It is funny watching the confusion considering Way Forward is just taking queues from the series itself. Advance wars was released in Japan as Gameboy Wars Advance 1+2 (hence the new name) and the “new artstyle “ is pretty much the artstyle of the cover of the first DS game. Folks are like “they changed it!” When WayForward essentially restored it.

Weirdly, despite loving 2D Metroid, I think I'm more excited for this than I am for Metroid Dread.

Really curious to see how elaborate the online features are. Hopefully these games include a full suite of local and online co-op options.

I was thinking that it would be cool if Fire Emblem Heroes had a crossover event to advertise this game.

They’re kinda like sibling series. And it would be funny to see literal tanks next to knights, mages, dragons, and dragons in bikinis.

I find the mental image of Nowi standing atop a tank giving orders amazing lol.

Given that Book V of FEH already introduced steampunk and mechs, I don't think it's that much of a stretch.

It would be the perfect time to add them, true.
