The Advance Wars franchise is fondly regarded by plenty of GBA / DS era gamers, but it's been quiet for a good number of years. Understandably that's led to plenty of attention for TINY METAL, a title that isn't shy about trying to assume the crown for turn-based strategy warfare.

It's out this week in Japan (and seemingly everywhere) priced at US$24.99 / €24.99 / £22.99, and ahead of its launch there's a snazzy new video that showcases its feature and content; it's looking rather tasty to us.

We have a chat with game director Hiroaki Yura going live this week, while naturally we're playing through it for review. Is this on your Switch eShop wishlist?
