Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, the long-gestating remake of the GameBoy tactics classics, may have been delayed to February 24, 2023 (H/T NintendoSoup).

Swedish retailer CoolShop has reportedly notified customers who pre-ordered the game via email that the game won't ship until February. The game, in development at California-based WayForward Technologies, was originally scheduled for release in December 2021. Nintendo first delayed the game to April, and then delayed it indefinitely, citing the ongoing war in Ukraine. CoolShop's email would be the first news on a release date for the game since that delay.

It's likely this new date is a placeholder for CoolShop, and doesn't reflect new information about the game's eventual release, but it's possible the retailer has leaked information.

Neither Nintendo nor WayForward has confirmed the release date shared by WayForward. DBLTAP has reached out to both companies and will update this story with their response.

The Advance Wars games to be collected in WayForward's remaster were released in September 2001, and June 2003. The two games have built up a cult following in the years since release.
