Advance Wars DS

This game looks really good. I got really excited for a second when I saw "June 23", but then I saw "in Japan" after it. I can't believe we have to wait until October 9, but it looks well worth the wait.

Saw the same screenshots in a Nintendo Power from before the DS came out.

The origonial advance wars was awsome! I got like 100 hours of play out of that thing. My favorite person to play in multiplayer was Eagle.  ;D Without that game I can honastly say the GBA SP would not hold the place in my heart it does now

Sure, looks awesome, but I personally can't wait for Fire Emblem on the GameCube...

Freaking awesome, only game I have seen that looks like it would be good for the DS so far!

There are quite a few games coming out for the DS that look pretty good, AWDS obviously one of them, but the problem is that the earliest any of them will be coming out is about September.

IGN has a nice little write-up and new movies from the finished (yeah!) Fire Emblem for the GameCube. Too bad it doesn't come out here for quite some time:

http://cube.ign.com/articles/606/606324p1.html

However the good news is that I did see them put out boxes at EB for the new GBA game Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (comes out 5/23/2005).

Damn Intelligent Systems, you guys sure can make great games.

Found some nice new info:

Here are some Advance Wars DS scans from Japan:





The originals are too big to put on here, so check them out at:

and

Oh yeah, anyone out there read Japanese and know what is going on here?

This is the game I'm gonna get a DS for!
I love the AW series because of the pure strategy, not tampered by levelling up your soldiers like in FFTA for instance.
And the COs make a nice refreshing change. I can't wait to play Jake, who is a tank and open terrain specialist. (Hence he's in my avatar.)
