Chucklefish and Robotality have announced Wargroove 2, a sequel to the Advance Wars-inspired strategy game for PC and Nintendo Switch. The game does not have an official release date yet.
As reported by Nintendo Life, Wargroove 2 takes place in a beachy region named Aurania and will have three campaign arcs with a storytelling approach similar to that of Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
It has new features such as Conquest, which is a roguelike single-player mode, as well as new commanders and unit types to control, an improved map, campaign, and cutscene editors.

Commanders have a unique skill called a Groove that promise to change the pace of a battle, as players can supercharge their Groove ability to unleash an even more powerful attack.
Players can also participate in up to four player co-op or versus battles either locally or online, with rule customization and asynchronous play included.
Wargroove was first released in 2019 for PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. In ’s Wargroove review, we said: “Wargroove is the Advance Wars successor its long-neglected fans have been waiting for. It faithfully revives the tactics I loved that series for while putting plenty of its own spins on the concept.”
