Several of Nintendo’s online services will be down tomorrow for “emergency maintenance,” extending the downtime from their regularly scheduled maintenance.
A list detailing when and what services would be affected was posted on Nintendo’s network status page:

No word on what the “emergency” in “emergency maintenance” is, but at least it seems to only extend the expected downtime by an hour or so for each service.
Nintendo states that “during the emergency maintenance, parts of the affected services may be intermittently unavailable.” Which ought to be implicitly understood and expected, but hey—coffee is (often) hot. Handle with care.
