The Advance Wars inspired turn-based strategy game War groove will be continued, publisher Chucklefish announced on Wednesday. War quarry 2 will move away from the medieval knights and fantasy flavors of the original for something more colorful, with new units and commanders including giant squids, pigs, mermen, birdback soldiers, and pirates with flamethrowers.
Chucklefish says it appeals to developer Robotality, the studio behind pixelated strategy games Away And Halfway throughfor War quarry 2. The sequel is coming to Nintendo Switch and Windows PC, but there’s no indication of a release date yet, other than sometime in 2023.
On SteamChucklefish explained what’s changing War quarry 2. Updates include a new tiered Groove system for commanders’ special abilities, three story campaigns, a new roguelike mode, and an improved editor that allows players to create their own maps, campaigns, and cutscenes.
While the original War groove – released in 2019 – helping to fill the void left in the absence of the Advance Wars series, Nintendo is finally getting back into that industry with the release of Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp in April.
