Tiny Metal really hit the spot for Advance Wars veterans, offering hours of turn-based tactical gameplay and some excellent presentation. Developer Area 35 has now revealed a sequel in the form of Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble, which offers more content, maps and units than the original, as well as multiplayer action from day one.

77 skirmish maps will make the cut, 21 of which can be played with another person. 23 unit types are on offer – including mechs and new Hero and Commander units – and you'll be able to experience a whole new story across 39 campaign missions.

The plot follows Commander Wolfram, leader of the White Fangs, as she searches for her brother and tries to prevent a lethal technology from falling into the wrong hands. Four new difficulty modes are available, allowing you to tailor the challenge to your liking.

Producer Hiroaki Yura had this to say:

Our all-star team of developers have expanded on the features of the first game and crafted a compelling new narrative to make for an even more thrilling tactical experience. We will test the strategic mettle of Switch with an adventure that evokes Nintendo classics like Advance Wars while pushing the genre forward.

Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble launches on Nintendo Switch this Spring, and will have full English-language text support as well as English voice-overs.
