This Nintendo Switch remake of the classic war strategy games Advance Wars has seen its release delayed for more than a year due to the coincidence with the start of the war in Ukraine.

Live A Live is the perfect definition of a cult game. This original adventure was published in 1994 for the Super Nintendo, but never made it out of Japan.
