    “Days of Ruin is much more than just a new chapter in the Advance Wars
series,” says Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president
of sales & marketing. “Our core gamers continue to buzz about the game’s
post-apocalyptic storyline, new characters and stylized graphics that bring a
totally fresh experience to the series. The focus on strategy beyond raw
firepower makes it more rewarding than typical war games.”
    Kicking off a bold new story in the series, Advance Wars: Days of Ruin
imagines a dark future in which a devastating meteor strike has transformed
the planet into a perilous battleground, fraught with disease and barbaric
enemy forces. Players must use sharp turn-based strategy to lead their own
heroic unit on a mission to restore humanity, rendered in an exciting new
dual-screen graphics scheme.
    Players can use local networking or Nintendo(R) Wi-Fi Connection to enjoy
limitless replay by designing and sharing their own maps or facing opponents
in faraway places. Solo players can command their troops in a series of
tactical skirmishes, while the Free Battle mode allows up to four players to
challenge one another using one Nintendo DS system.
    Advance Wars: Days of Ruin is one of two games Nintendo is releasing this
week that demonstrate the way the company has something for all types of
gamers. While Advance Wars: Days of Ruin for Nintendo DS is a classic battle
strategy game, Endless Ocean(TM) for Wii(TM) invents a new genre of video
games as it takes users on a remarkable underwater journey of exploration. For
