Super Famicom Wars Translation Released
24 December 2017 2:07AM EST - Update by optiroc
Almost 20 years after its original Japanese release, the immediate ancestor to the beloved tactics game Advance Wars is finally playable in English.
Super Famicom Wars was developed by Intelligent Systems, published by Nintendo and first released on May 1 1998. The game was available exclusively via the Nintendo Power rewritable cartridge system, making it one of the hardest Super Famicom titles to obtain.
The game was followed up by two titles for Game Boy Advance then yet another two for Nintendo DS in relatively quick succession. Since then, not much has been heard about the series’ future from either Nintendo or Intelligent Systems. This is a shame, really, since the Wars series’ upbeat take on turn-based military strategy is uniquely charming and accessible. So, in a way, releasing this translation makes a new game in the Wars franchise available to the English speaking world for the first time in almost ten years.
