As you know, Nintendo decided to delay Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp from its initial April 8th, 2022 release date due to the conflict taking place between Russia and Ukraine. We don’t have a new release date yet, but for one lucky Switch owner, that date doesn’t matter!
Twitter user Killetheth had preloaded Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp prior to the game being delayed, and by some stroke of luck, the game downloaded for them on launch day. We’re not quite sure how that slipped through Nintendo’s servers, but Killetheth does indeed have the full game.
On April 8th, we did notice that Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp was undergoing maintenance on the Switch eShop, but thought nothing of it, as the game didn’t have a new release date. It appears that maintenance may have led to this happy accident for at least one player.
