Weird! Japan finally getting Advance Wars: Days of Ruin

...Kind of

The last entry in the Advance Wars series, Days of Ruin (2008), never released in Japan. Weird, right?

Well, in news that no one expected, Advance Wars: Days of Ruin has been made available in Japan as a downloadable Club Nintendo Platinum-level members gift. Platinum members can nab it and a 2014 calendar as their prize,. The game will also be made available next May as a regular prize that can be purchased with 800 coins. It is being distributed as a 3DS eShop download.

I don't want to read too much into this, but Fire Emblem: Awakening's great success saved the franchise from being canned. Maybe its also given developer Intelligent Systems some wiggle room to bring back the Advance Wars series? Would be nice.
