Intelligent Systems would like to make a new Advance Wars

With Fire Emblem: Awakening released on 3DS and seeing quite the success, many may be wondering what that could mean for developer Intelligent Systems' other franchise, Advance Wars.

When inquired about the possibility of a new entry in the Advance Wars series, Masahiro Higuchi, project manager for Fire Emblem: Awakening said: "Well, whether it's Fire Emblem or Advance Wars, we never want to put an end to any series we're involved with. We always want to make games that provide a lot of fun to gamers, so if we have the chance, we'd certainly like to make another [Advance Wars] title."

I've always loved Advance Wars, but it has been in desperate need of an update. Perhaps add in some unit customization and/or RPG elements like Fire Emblem. As of right now, Advance Wars is fun, but the lack of variety over the long-haul of a campaign makes the game a chore to play.

Just an opinion, of course.

Completely disagree. It's like saying Chess needs RPG elements.

Donnieboi1300d ago

Dude that's exactly what i was saying too. We already got Fire Emblem for that.

Grimhammer001300d ago

Oh man a Archon update with rpg elements would rock!

(Chess could use a nice rpg overhaul too lol)

I want Classic AW + new game all in one.

Give us an epic story, but with the colorful look of the first games.

Add in a few RPG elements and let us create our own CO.

^ This would sell Millions.

With all due respect--Hell no. We already have Fire Emblem for all of that. Sometimes u just want a game where all the pieces are evenly one gets the advantage by being a higher level than u are. Like chess (sort of). The "higher level" should come in higher experience with the franchise, not grinding.

Sorry if I sound obsessive--I REALLY love this series the way it is.

For real, this would be awesome for 3DS with 3D spites or something, JUST SOMETHING lol

I would like to see it on WiiU but done in the same way as the DS.

Donnieboi1300d ago

Would be cool as a download with online multiplayer and map sharing via the map editor!!! Dude i'm getting excited!!!

kwyjibo1300d ago

A Wii U version should just ditch the TV altogether and just use the touch screen.

PygmelionHunter1300d ago

Excuse me mr.kwyjibo but why exactly would they do that?

kwyjibo1300d ago

Advance Wars only needs one screen.

The dual screen functionality added to the DS versions add nothing, no one actually cares about sending units up and down.

The touchscreen is the best way to interact with Advance Wars. So let's just play to the strengths.

Would love to see a new Advance Wars.

They need to get rid of the shitty dark gritty theme of the last game though. Maybe they thought that the cheery "War is fun, kids!" style was a bit crass - but the dark "War is hell, but also fun, kids!" was even worse.

With the original, you knew it was ridiculous - with the last game, it was like they were pretending badly that it wasn't.
