Nintendo Breaks the Military Mold With Advance Wars: Days of Ruin

New Look, Storyline and Online Battles Reinvent Award-Winning Strategy Game Series

Forget everything you know about hand-held combat strategy games. With this week's release of Advance Wars(R): Days of Ruin for Nintendo DS(TM), Nintendo is calling on strategy buffs of all stripes to save the planet with a new set of combat-ready characters, captivating visuals and extraordinary wireless features. For new recruits and Advance Wars veterans alike, Nintendo wants you!

"Days of Ruin is much more than just a new chapter in the Advance Wars series," says Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales & marketing. "Our core gamers continue to buzz about the game's post-apocalyptic storyline, new characters and stylized graphics that bring a totally fresh experience to the series. The focus on strategy beyond raw firepower makes it more rewarding than typical war games." Kicking off a bold new story in the series, Advance Wars: Days of Ruin imagines a dark future in which a devastating meteor strike has transformed the planet into a perilous battleground, fraught with disease and barbaric enemy forces. Players must use sharp turn-based strategy to lead their own heroic unit on a mission to restore humanity, rendered in an exciting new dual-screen graphics scheme.

Players can use local networking or Nintendo(R) Wi-Fi Connection to enjoy limitless replay by designing and sharing their own maps or facing opponents in faraway places. Solo players can command their troops in a series of tactical skirmishes, while the Free Battle mode allows up to four players to challenge one another using one Nintendo DS system.

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin is one of two games Nintendo is releasing this week that demonstrate the way the company has something for all types of gamers. While Advance Wars: Days of Ruin for Nintendo DS is a classic battle strategy game, Endless Ocean(TM) for Wii(TM) invents a new genre of video games as it takes users on a remarkable underwater journey of exploration.
