Advance Wars dev’s 3DS debut revealed

Intelligent Systems, developer of the beloved strategy series Advance Wars, will release its first 3DS game, Hiku-Osu, on the Japanese eShop next week.

In Hiku-Osu – which is to be published by Nintendo – players are cast as Maro, tasked with clearing his town of a block-like toy called Hiku-Osu.

Maro can push and pull these blocks to clear a path to each of the game's 250 stages, some of which will feature Nintendo settings and characters, and there's also a level editor. We've asked Nintendo about their plans for localisation, and will update should we hear back.
