Tiny Metal passed through Steam’s Greenlight program back in September of 2016, which is when the developers also raised over $32,000 to bring the project to life. The final version of Tiny Metal is expected to include a 10-hour single player and according to the Canadian Switch e-shop will be priced at $24.99 CDN.
Nintendo’s own Advanced Wars series began in 2001 with its titular entry and would also see two sequels on the Nintendo DS – Advanced Wars: Dual Strike and Advanced Wars: Days of Ruin. It has been a number of years since we’ve had an original entry in the now dormant franchise with the most recent activity being a re-release on the Wii U E shop in 2014.
