The announcement does not specifically cite the Russian invasion of Ukraine as the cause of the delay. However, that is almost certainly what it refers to. The game features (cartoon-like) depictions of tank warfare, city invasions, and other forms of combat currently taking place in Ukraine.

ReBoot Camp is a remake of the first two Advance Wars games. The turn-based strategy titles that originally launched on the Game Boy Advance. This is the second time Nintendo has delayed the game, as it was originally scheduled to launch on December 3, 2021.

Several game companies have expressed their support for Ukraine during the invasion, and some have shut down operations in Russia in response. Nintendo has suspended the Russian eShop because it can no longer process Russian rubles, according to an announcement on Nintendo Russia.
