Unfortunately, Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp is not coming to PC and Xbox Game Pass, and will remain a Nintendo Switch exclusive title for the foreseeable future.

Seeing as it is a Nintendo-published title, it would be very surprising to see it make the jump at any point post-release - especially as the series has no history outside of Nintendo's first-party console lineup.

We never know though, as previously Nintendo Switch exclusive tactics titles like Triangle Strategy have been ported over to PC several months after release, but that was developed and published by Nintendo so has less ties to the Switch.

The same is very true for another Intelligent Systems series in Fire Emblem which has remained Nintendo exclusive for its entire life span, even with the most recent release of Fire Emblem Engage.

So, if you're desperate to play Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp and you've not got a Nintendo Switch, you might need to either make the jump or miss out entirely. Considering how loved the series is though, you might not look back after making the switch.

So, that's everything you need to know if you were wondering if Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp is coming to PC or Xbox Game Pass. In the meantime though, why not check out this Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp release date guide to find out everything we currently know about the tactics title.
