Nintendo is temporarily turning off eShop services later today into tomorrow while they attempt to resolve connection issues and disruptions, the company announced this morning on Facebook.
According to the post, both Wii U and 3DS eShops will be offline starting 1 p.m. Pacific Time (4 p.m. Eastern) today and 1 a.m. tomorrow morning (4 a.m. Eastern). This announcement follows reports of Nintendo Network ID errors and eShop service outages.
“We sincerely apologize for the connection problems in the Nintendo eShop,” reads the company’s Facebook post.. “We understand this is taking longer than expected, but we can assure you that providing a solution is our top priority. We are determined to make sure everyone can enjoy all that Wii U and Nintendo 3DS have to offer.”
As a result of Nintendo’s need to prioritize Wii U and 3DS eShop services, today’s launch of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter apps have been delayed.
