Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (JP: Famicom Wars DS Ushinawareta Hikari) was delisted in March of 2016 when My Nintendo replaced Club Nintendo as the publisher’s worldwide player reward service. Like WarioWare: Touched!, Advance Wars on the 3DS was a unique release. It was one of only two DS titles that were offered as a download on the Nintendo 3DS and was stored in the DSiWare portion of the system storage rather than as a standard eShop download.

No other digital versions of the game have been released and this Japanese-language version is considered Extinct as it is not readily available on any other medium.

About the Game

Advance Wars has been reborn. Set amid a world in chaos and boasting new characters and settings, the latest game in the series features a gritty look, an engaging storyline and online battles and map trading. It’s the most stunning Advance Wars ever.

  • New COs and units, realistic graphics and a new environment bring the world of Advance Wars to life like never before. After a cataclysmic meteor strike exterminates 90 percent of the population, the survivors must battle barbarians, disease and megalomaniacal strongmen who seek only to secure their own power.
  • Strategy fans will rejoice over the long-awaited inclusion of online play, which promises to add almost unlimited depth and replay ability. Hop on Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and battle against a friend halfway across the world, or use the powerful map editor to create, trade and battle on custom maps.
