Though Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp was delayed last year due to the war in Ukraine, a number of retailers have started to list the game again. While this could be a coincidence, the timing suggests that a new release date for Intelligent Systems‘ strategy game could be revealed tonight.
Elsewhere, a number of games launching in coming months – including Octopath Traveler 2, Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon and Minecraft Legends – could also make an appearance at the Direct.
Last month, Nintendo revealed that it would be increasing the production of Switch consoles ahead of Tears Of The Kingdom launching on May 12.
