The latest Advance Wars game titled Days of Ruin was made grittier and edgier and published in NA first. Unfortunately it seems it didn't sell as well as Nintendo expected. Nintendo ended up cancelling the planned Japanese release of Days of Ruin despite already being fully translated in Japanese.
Do I think Nintendo will eventually try to revive the Wars franchise? It's possible. Maybe they'll go for nostalgia and bring back the first Advance Wars cast with a similar cartoony art style and simpler mechanics. The original Advance Wars was the most revered and inspirational of the series, so maybe they can bring something like that back.
Until then, you still probably haven't managed to S rank the original Advance Campaign, so get on it!
