Advance Wars VC

With the popularity of FE:Awakening, what are the chances of getting the first 2 advance war games on the eshop?

FE is nothing like AW except the fact that Intelligent Systems designed the games. Other than that there is no real correlation. AW is too much pure strategy with very little room for error. Whereas Fire Emblem allows a little room for error and less on strategy since you can power level certain guys.

Plus RPG elements just make it better (surprise surprise). So yes Advance Wars might be on VC someday but not cuz of FE.

It's a pretty niche series, I don't see Nintendo clamouring to revive it. It's certainly more niche than Fire Emblem and appeals to different players.

Although the devs have stated that they would like to make another AW game.

Really? This is how you see it? Because all of the people that I know that are into Fire Emblem... are also into Advance Wars. Hell most of us probably played Advance Wars 1 & Black Hole Rising before even Fire Emblem 7 came into being. So, really, the player base is pretty shared. It doesn't "appeal to different players" it appeals to the exact same players.

But as to the real topic at hand, I think we have a harder battle of getting Ninty to get GBA games on the VC then worrying about what specific games we want for the VC when that platform isn't even available for purchase yet. Win that battle and I will be on of the FIRST to campaign for Advance Wars to come to the VC. Those 2 games are Classics.

It's like that Venn Diagram where you've got two circles with Fire Emblem Players, Advance Wars Players and there's a good slice in the middle that overlaps.

I know plenty of people who like Fire Emblem that don't like Advance Wars and vice versa. There's just a fair chunk in the middle that like both games. Claiming that an AW Fan is an FE fan or the reverse is just a good way to start arguments :)

They are rather different games, they try to do different things. I personally hope the two series keep their distinct identities.
