But it is releasing next year.
Since Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp was announced earlier this year, as part of the E3 Nintendo Direct, very little has been said about the reboot. In fact, because of the silence, some feared the lack of news might be a sign of a potential delay and following today’s announcement, those fears were well-founded. Nintendo has shared the news that the game will no longer be meeting its December 3, 2021 release date, but it WILL release in Spring 2022.
Hello, troops! #AdvanceWars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, which was set to launch on 12/3, will now release for #NintendoSwitch in spring 2022. The game just needs a little more time for fine tuning. You’ll be battling with Andy & friends soon! Thanks for your patience. pic.twitter.com/dSi8VSsxTH

While it is a shame for the game to be pushed back, with Shantae developer, WayForward in the driving seat of this remake, they are well known for delivering well-polished games that are well worth the wait.
About Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp:
Command an army in strategic, turn-based combat as a tactical adviser for the Orange Star Army. Your expertise is needed as you move land, air, and naval units across the battlefield. Take down enemy squads and capture towns and bases to secure victory and keep the peace. Keep an eye on the game-changing terrain and weather as you lead a variety of units across multiple maps. This remake features two campaigns that cover the events of Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising!
Fight alongside capable Commanding Officers – Defend your land with the help of Andy, Max, Sami, and other Commanding Officers, each with their own specialties and CO Powers. Andy can repair units, while Sami can boost the abilities of troops. Your opponents can use CO abilities of their own too! Throughout both campaigns, the COs you meet play a critical role both on the battlefield and in the story.
Recruit some friends and see who the superior strategist is – When you aren’t busy keeping the peace in one of the two campaign stories, flex your army-commanding chops in Versus Mode*. Up to four players can battle on dozens of maps. Each player chooses a CO from either campaign and can strategically use their CO Powers to turn the tides of battle. Customize your combat with options like funds per allied base and fog of war.
