The first two installments of the classic strategy series Advance Wars are coming to Nintendo Switch in a remastered collection called Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp.

The newly announced collection is coming to the Nintendo Switch on December 3 and will contain both Advance Wars and its sequel, Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising. Both games have been rebuilt ‘from the ground up’ and will boast a new graphical style, to boot.

“Command an army in strategic, turn-based combat as a tactical adviser for the Orange Star Army. Your expertise is needed as you move land, air, and naval units across the battlefield,” reads a press release from Nintendo.

“Take down enemy squads and capture towns and bases to secure victory and keep the peace. Keep an eye on the game-changing terrain and weather as you lead a variety of units across multiple maps. This remake features two campaigns that cover the events of Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising!”

Take a look at the trailer below.

In the game, you’ll be tasked with defending your land with the help of Andy, Max, Sami, and other Commanding Officers –  each with their own specialties and CO Powers.

Andy can repair units, while Sami can boost the abilities of troops, for example. Your opponents can use CO abilities of their own, so you’ll need to be careful.

Throughout both campaigns, the COs you meet play a critical role both on the battlefield and in the story.

Advance Wars 1+2: Re-boot Camp arrives on Nintendo Switch on December 3.
