    A product needs to fulfill a need. What do these remakes accomplish in this regard?

    because some dip at way forward decided to make it worse in QoL/online than any of the previous AW titles. even the scuffed as frick DoR online would have been better, you could random play. and doing campaign is a fricking slog because you can't save on the turn. gotta redo like 15+ minutes of moving your dudes to get back to turn X. awful take the entire way through. also you can't save VS matches, if they even finish without freezing. the delay was for nothing but politics.

    AW2 is one of my top 10 games of all time, and i actually really like the toybox art style, but the game is worse than the originals in every way. It runs slower and is not as snappy, you can't save an offline VS match for later like you can in the original, the online multiplayer is fricked because the enemy can see your cursor and so knows where all your units are.

      I don't even think the voice actor choices were entirely bad (besides a few rather questionable picks though), but they really needed some better direction. Lash easily pisses me off the most because Sarah Anne Williams has been Peawiener, Nonon, Uni, Cagliostro, and plenty other roles that demonstrate she CAN pull off the cuter younger voice while even making it pretty deranged or maniacal when needed, but it's like she was told to sound like a dreary bored goth without even fricking looking at the in game dialogue she actually has.

    Honestly the fact that it's just a remake of Advance Wars rather than
    >Famicom Wars Switch with new original characters and setting
    hurt it a lot when the long ass franchise hiatus and the fact that Switch owners are generally ravenous about games is a shitload of missed potential.
    And the fact that it's very irreverent and unserious about everything. This works better for Pikmin as far as strategy goes, but even that has a generally melancholic tone at times.

    The big three Fire Emblems had very serious presentation even when they weren't 100% serious games, and especially with Awakening it was important to convey how much their production values had improved.

    (also lmao Christina Vee as Edelgard)

    Engage not doing that automatically put a hard ceiling on it and that's why we haven't had a meaningful sales update.

    Being goofy is being true to the original game but not doing something new, that took its conflict seriously like Days of Ruin which would have instantly gotten more eyes on it and prolonged interest, instead condemned it to being another "oh yeah that came out" 2023 release whose biggest source of adjacent notoriety is being delayed because Russia invaded Ukraine.
