Missing in the Japanese Direct
Even with Nintendo on the publishing duties here, this one was not show off at all during the Japanese Direct. While it will likely make an appearance in some form or another via NCL’s topics page, gamers in Japan will have to play the waiting game on this one. Oddly enough, an Advance Wars compilation hit Japan back in 2004 on the Game Boy Advance. The “two pack” was titled Game Boy Wars Advance 1+2 and the product page is even still up and running. You can check that out here.
There were a few other titles the got shifted around in the presentation or that were just excluded - Super Monkey Ball got less exposure as did Tony Hawk. Worms, Doom Eternal, Cruisn’ Blast and a few others were missing entirely. Obviously, the exclusion of some of these titles boils down to regional tastes as well as release cycles. However, the exclusion of Advance Wars was a bit odd considering the game is being published by Nintendo.
