I had this idea ages ago and I have no clue as to why I haven't posted it until now. Pretty simple, too, given the topic title says it all.

So the first two AW games had Nell calling the shots and AWDS had Rachel for some odd reason, explaining everything to nubs. In CW, we should really keep to this tradition with some of the menus...I mean, who's gonna ask us to save and stuff, right? Without someone there, it's just not Advance Wars!

Basically what I'm saying is, bring back the assistant-character to the side of the menu, except...okay, maybe you don't want to see Nell or Rachel there every time you load up the game. What if we had an option menu (possibly an unlockable of course, under the Design section of the menu, too, yes) that let you select who you want to appear to the right. We could have them be unlockable (finish x mission to get mascot) but...oh, whatever floats your boat, right?

Okay, as we don't have any real menu setup except for the menus we have now, I just threw together a five-minute main menu. It's in no way at all final (as the final would introduce the use of two screens) but it's used pretty much to show how the CO shows up. Apologies in advance for it being ugly as hell. Also don't yell at me if the phrases aren't 100% in character...I TRIED FOR THIRTY SECONDS OF BRAINSTORMING, OKAY

Alright, so we start out with Nell, right?

"But guys, I'm tired of Nell! I want Sasha!"

So you go to the menu, pick Sasha...and shizzam, you've got...Sasha.

Image

"But Sasha's personality is flatter than Rachel's chest! I want another CO!"

How about someone...lively like...Grit?

Image

Or...one of these four others that I was bored so I made for little reason. >_>

Yeah, this includes CCOs too and can even include non-playable characters, however I don't know the personality of every single AW character and can't impersonate them in writing to a T.

Anyway, yeah, basically I'm saying "hey guys, remember this?" and uh...that's pretty much the whole point here.

Sound like a good idea?
