Mecho Wars is Advance Wars on crack.

The game β€” which was announced more than a year ago β€” boasts the artwork of the delightfully outspoken Luc Bernard, and looks fabulous. The title features environmental factors that have an impact on the gameplay β€” for example, water freezes at night. Every turn takes an hour to complete in gameplay time, so you need to think ahead with each move in order to command a strategic advantage.

There's a trailer after the break that gives a better look at the title's gameplay style.
