    The Black Hole Army comes storming back.

    The Black Hole Army comes storming back in this worthy successor to an award-winning strategy game. Rain destruction upon their foul legions by ordering your troops effectively and overpowering your enemies with new Super Commanding Officer Powers. Then, see how your tactics stack up to your friends’ in 4-player battles—all with one Wii U™.

    Take control of more units and battle on more maps than even the original Advance Wars had to offer. More terrain means more options, and more options means crazier creations. So employ every feature of the robust map designer to craft punishing maps, and then challenge the CPU or your friends on the battlefield. After a few battles, take your hard-earned points to the Battlemaps shop to purchase new maps, challenges, and Commanding Officers.

"YOUR JOURNEY IS JUST BEGINNING..." promotional booklet:
    the black hole army has some friends who want to meet you!

    Just when you thought you'd seen the last of them, the Black Hole Army has come slithering back into Cosmo Land. Their sinister leader, Sturm, has infiltrated the hearts of your homelands, and he's got an ingenious plan to fund his new army. He's run a massive pipeline from his base of operations into all the continents of Wars World, and he's draining your resources to fuel his war machines! He's dispatched his new COs, Adder, Lash, Flak, and Hawke, to crush the armies of Orange Star, Yellow Comet, Blue Moon, and Green Earth. It's up to you to unite the armies of Wars World and guide them into their final confrontation with the forces of the Black Hole Army.

    • New, massive neotanks provide your armies with insane firepower. These juggernauts of destruction plow through any opposition, but you can't build them until you discover the blueprints.
    • Using the indestructible new pipeline, you can create maps that force a conflict right where you want, resulting in even more climactic multiplayer battles.
    • Silos fire a single missile anywhere on the map, but they are neutral properties. If you hope to claim the advantage, you'll waste no time in rushing your foot soldiers onto the silo.
