Battalion Wars[edit | edit source]
The Battalion Wars series consists of two games. The first sees Xylvania in pursuit of global conquest, and tricks the Tundran Territories into launching a pre-emptive attack on the Western Frontier. Xylvania plays the true antagonist in the second game, luring the Anglo Isles to attack the Solar Empire based on rumors of a super-weapon.
In Japan the Battalion Wars series is considered to be part of the Famicom Wars series.
Cancelled games[edit | edit source]
A game called 64 Wars was in development by Hudson Soft for the Nintendo 64 and was planned to be released in 1999, but was cancelled. A 2D map was used for troop movement, while the action was shown with 3D cutscenes. Connectivity was planned with Game Boy Wars 2.
A game entitled Knight Wars, known internally as Castle Wars, was intended to be a medieval spin-off of the Battalion Wars series. Citing poor sales of Battalion Wars 2, the game was never completed.
