What Is Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp?
For years (and years, and years) strategy game fans had been pining for a new Advance Wars. But it seemed Nintendo had left the franchise behind in favor of its other turn-based strategy game series, the fantasy-flavored Fire Emblem. And while this isn’t a new entry per se, it’s good to see new life breathed into the modern military series Advance Wars.
This game contains full remakes of the first two Advance Wars games, which originally appeared on GBA in the early 2000s, before the series graduated to the Nintendo DS. In them, you’re in command of the Orange Star Army, which means you’re responsible for telling your land, sea, and air-based troops where to go and which enemies to engage.
You can play through the two campaigns, or you can go up against friends in Versus Mode.

After years of speculation, we at last know what Redfall will be. And it definitely won’t be The Elder Scrolls 6.
The announcement truly puts to rest speculation that began in early 2019, when Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media was revealed to be in a trademark dispute over the the term Redfall. ZeniMax first filed for the name back in September 2018.
The filing sparked speculation that The Elder Scrolls 6 would be named Redfall, a term that first appeared in the Redguard adventure game in 1998. It didn’t make a ton of sense given that most Elder Scrolls games are named for locations, and Redfall has never actually appeared in TES lore, but fans are hungry for any tiny bit of information.
Bethesda writer Michael Kirkbride confirmed that The Elder Scrolls 6 wouldn’t be called Redfall in a 2019 AMA. Nevertheless, the name has continued to rattle around in Elder Scrolls coverage.
We now know that Redfall will be a co-op open world shooter from Arkane Studios. It will feature vampires, which are certainly present in the Elder Scrolls universe, but these vampires are the result of a lab accident.

We still know extremely little about The Elder Scrolls 6. Right now Bethesda seems focused on Starfield, which was confirmed for a November 2022 release date. Redfall will be out next year as well.
