Advance Wars: Days of Ruin weirdness ⊟
One of this year’s Platinum prizes for Club Nintendo members in Japan is a downloadable version of 2008’s Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. This isn’t a “Confirmed: Nintendo officially confirms DS games for eShop (confirmation)” announcement, but it’s an interesting move for a few reasons:
- Days of Ruin was translated for Japan but never released there
- A cancelled first-party DS game originally intended for retail release was turned into a downloadable title
- Nintendo did something with the Advance Wars franchise (it’s remained dormant for the last five year)
So, who knows what will come with this. Anticipate the worst, hope for the best.
Platinum members can choose to grab this or a 2014 calendar for their prize — the Days of Ruin download will also become available as a standard prize that people can purchase with 800 coins starting next May.
