64 Wars (lost build of unreleased Nintendo 64 turn-based strategy game; 1999)
64 Wars, also known as Advance Wars 64, is an entry in the Wars franchise. Plans called for interconnectivity between GameBoy Wars 2. 64 Wars was showcased at Spaceworld 1999 with a release date of January 29th, 1999. Despite this, the game was cancelled for unknown reasons.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Advance Wars 64 would have followed the same format as other games in the Wars series which is a tactical role-playing game. Players would oversee a 2D map, but when battles would occur, the battles would render in 3d. Additionally, the game would have utilized the Gameboy Transfer Pack with GameBoy Wars 2 to gain access to several features, such as the ability to transfer match progress between the systems. The menu for this function still appears in GameBoy Wars 2 but can't be used.
Avaliability[edit | edit source]
While the game was never released, screenshots and footage of 64 Wars have surfaced. Despite this, no builds of 64 Wars have ever been released or leaked.
