Gender Equality In Our Forces

By SHINYGIRAFARIG - Women can be both Troops and Commanding Officers

I emailed to WayForward Support on July 24, 2021:

Please put in female Infantry for Orange Star for Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp

The US Senate finally voted to have women be required to sign up for the Selective Service System. It would be wonderful if Orange Star, the US's Advance Wars counterpart, shows this new change and have female infantry as well.

Thanks so much.

An Advance Wars fan.

Aaron from WayForward then replied this:


Thanks for writing in! Though I can't make any promises, as we don't have complete control over the project, I've passed your request onto the director of the game. :)



Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp eventually released. I decided to play the second game first because I wanted to see Lash and Jess as early as possible. During the playthrough of the Orange Star missions I noticed this:

Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp female woman Orange Star Troop dialogue

Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp male man Orange Star Troop dialogue

Comparing body types, the first image is definitely a female troop.

But that is not all. Other factions also have female troops. It might be hard to notice because the body type differences between female and male troops are not that obvious. That is why WayForward needed to delay the game the first time. To add voice acting so it will be more clear:

Would you say I am responsible for getting female troops into Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp?
