On the subject of people with actual track records, Jeff Grubb recently name dropped Super Mario RPG. Without elaborating any further.


So we may have to keep that in the back of our minds, just in case.
A bunch of insiders have been teasing SMRPG as of late so it's pretty odd lol. Granted, I already expect Geno to most likely be Fighter 7.

As an aside, Grubb is a huge Advance Wars fan which I find very cool.


Maybe once we're closer to the reveal of Advance Wars Mobile, we might get some teases from Grubb about it? That would be pretty cool if he was in the know about it.

More fuel for the Geno fans, huh? Those guys can be something else sometimes...

At least we have another known AW backer, even if he isn't currently saying it's actually coming back.

Say, remember that tank game from the Partner Showcase? Weelllll...


Wanna add that to the list of AW supporters?
That's pretty funny considering I made the joke about a tank'related game being shown off before but it not being Advance Wars. Nice to see a bunch of different studios wanting to see the return of Advance Wars.
Never did formally post here, but support. Would make for a great moveset. Would also be neat if Andy came packed with content from older Wars Games as well, Super Famicom Wars has done great music
Thanks for the support!

I think Andy having at least one track from the Famicom Wars-era of the Wars series is a given. Maybe a medley of sorts of some of the remixes from those games? To showcase the franchise's history and all.

I pledge my support! After digging into him for RTC, I'm interested in Advance Wars (Or Famicom Wars, or Nintendo Wars, or just Wars. Whatever we're calling it now). Plus, I'll need some pointers for designing his moveset in my own Smash project, and this seems like the place for Andy info.

If it helps you any, apparently SSF2 is planning on adding Andy at some point, if you need reference material. We don't know when, though...

Thanks for the support! If you want ideas for your Andy moveset, feel free to ask around because we all pitched in ideas for our Andy movesets.

And speaking of which, I haven't taken the time to write Andy's moveset in complete detail yet which I should really get to. And by moveset I mean the complete Challenger Pack and how I would present Andy in Smash.

Oh yeah, i'm really curious to see what SSF2's take on Andy will be. Granted, I thought their Isaac could have been better but hopefully they get Andy's moveset down to a tee.

Speaking of movesets, anyone here watch a Youtuber named Brawlfan1? He has a series called "What If They Were In Smash?", in which he talks about potential movesets for characters that could be added. He picks the characters based on how many requests they get, so we could try and start now. Though I should mention, in order to make the movesets in question, he has to take the time to play the game(s) that character appears in, so there's no guarantee he'd do it right away (case in point, ever since The Henry Stickmin Collection came out, people have been wanting him to make a moveset for Henry, but he needs time to actually play the game first).

That would be pretty cool if he were to make a moveset and all. The more eyeballs on Andy the better lol.

Given what happened with :ultsimon:'s release timing for SSF2, I'm willing to bet that the staff is waiting out the majority of Fighter Pass 2's release windows, just in case Andy isn't in Ultimate and that their portrayal of his moveset doesn't clash with any official take.
Yeah good point. It was really something seeing Simon revealed in Ultimate and then two days later, being revealed for SSF2. I feel we could potentially have a similar situation with Andy if he were in the Pass and then SSF2 reveals Andy in the same year.

Of course, I am curious to see what SSF2's take on Andy would be so i'm low-key hoping they reveal Andy first (if Andy were in this Pass). They could always change the moveset later like they did with Megaman & Pit.

There's been a sudden spike in Advance Wars discussion on my Twitter. Not that that's a bad thing, mind yoi.

Stealth has always been a big supporter for Advance Wars returning which is really cool.

I mean for that matter, there's a lot of notable people that are big fans of this franchise. Most notably, Reggie & Bill.

I remember about a year ago GoodGrief741 GoodGrief741 mentioned something among the lines of a new Advance Wars game set decades in to the future after the Wars World games. He mentioned how it could have fun cameos of old CO's showing up in the story like Andy being the President of Orange Star.

It's funny because I came across this funny mock-up on the Advance Wars sub-reddit that's basically that.




President Andy has my vote, just saying lol.

It's good to see when people with artistic talent put ideas that you had to paper.

Yeah I had a few fanon ideas before for other series in my head until someone actually did a mock-up of it and it's like "wow that's really neat" lol.

In other news, the guy who did the "What if Advance Wars CO's were Voice Acted" did a follow up for the sequel, Black Hole Rising. Check it out below.


Solid casting choices once again. Low-key wish he would use Clancy Brown as the voice for Hawke (think his Lex Luthor voice) but otherwise it's a really solid line-up. Never thought of Mike Pollock doing the voice for Olaf but it's actually a really good fit. Here's hoping Pollock is contacted to do the voice for Olaf whenever that mobile Advance Wars comes to light.

So most of you probably heard of the news from the Nintendo investor meeting thing or whatever but they re-affirmed something that we talked about here. That being, how their Mobile business (among other things) serves to support their core Switch business.

1600294388390.png


This ties in to what I've been talking about for a while now with the Advance Wars Mobile rumor and how this could lead to a Switch game proper. Now, we have confirmation outright that their mobile business is supposed to prop up their Switch business which supports this idea. Given the trademark from Dec 2018 (I explained this before many times in this thread but I would be happy to do so again for anyone interested in particulars), it's safe to say that something Advance Wars is coming next year. So essentially, the two scenarios here are either...

A) Just a Switch entry
B) A mobile entry followed by a Switch entry

And given all the rumors surrounding the franchise, it's safe to say Scenario B is the more likely one.

Suffice to say, we're going to be in luck next year. Mark my words.

Yeah, given their strategy, I wouldn't expect an AW mobile game to be a one and done. If one's in the works, I assume that there are plans to give the series a proper comeback as well.
Oh yeah just think about the amount of Advance Wars games we could be getting in 2021.

  • Advance Wars Mobile
  • Advance Wars Switch
  • Advance Wars games on Nintendo Switch Online (hopefully, GBA games make their way in a year's time)

Also if Nintendo went all in with this IP, there could potentially be things like Advance Wars figurines & a Manga for the franchise. Remember the idea I pitched about an Advance Wars anime/manga? Well if this holds up true, that could very well come to light.

That aside, if the three things I mentioned come to light, it would def give Andy a good shot at being in the Fighters Pass if Nintendo were willing to do that for the franchise.

It's funny how the discussion about Advance Wars can so easily shift from "Anyone here remember Advance Wars?" to "Anyone here remember the time when Advance Wars was dead" so quickly. And i'd love every second of that.
