From the Ruins: An Advance Wars Postmortem by IGN

IGN writes: "Nintendo gave its long-running strategy series quite the makeover with Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. It paid off with the gaming press, garnering an average review score of 8.4. But consumers have been slow to warm to the title. So far Days of Ruin has sold around 90,000 copies according to VG Chartz, which is rather low for a first-party Nintendo game. Of course, turn-based strategy isn't the most popular genre in the world, and there wasn't exactly an advertising blitz leading up to its launch.

In any case, we really like the game, and we recently caught up with its developers to ask about some of the changes they made to the series. Questions were submitted to Hitoshi Yamagami (Production Group Manager, Nintendo Software Planning and Development Dept.), Masaki Tawara (Production Director, Nintendo Software Planning and Development Dept.), and Kazuhiro Yoshikawa (Production Assistant Director, Nintendo Software Planning and Development Dept.), then fed through a Bionic Translation Organism".
