Battalion Wars​ (aka Totsugeki!! Famicom Wars (突撃!!ファミコンウォーズ) in Japan), originally to be titled Advance Wars: Under Fire, part of Nintendo's Wars series, is a 2005 real-time tactics game for the Nintendo GameCube. A sequel, Battalion Wars 2, for the Wii, has also been released.

Battalion Wars contains the elements of both a third-person shooter and a real-time tactics game. In the midst of battle, the player will have control over a variety of units, including infantry, armored vehicles, and aircraft. Separate units or unit groups can be given commands. Units can be commanded to follow the player, hold their positions, man gun turrets, or attack certain targets. At any time, the player may transfer control from one unit to another.

If you select duel core you will "Failed to render video frame" in log and game will sit on a black screen. Also, Directx plugin works but has many graphical errors and runs really slowly. Sorry for no left sound. Didn't realize I had the sound options pushed to right speakers. Battalion Wars GameCube Dolphin 4361 jedikevin20
