Codex Gamicus

Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising is the sequel to Advance Wars. Here, you play as every nation, from Orange Star to Blue Moon, as you try and defeat the Black Hole Army, led by Sturm, the boss of the first Advance Wars game. This game, along with Advance Wars, was not released in Japan until a recent 2-in-1 pack due to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
