Frustrated with the Nintendo eShop issues that have cropped up since Christmas day? Well, you're not the only one. Nintendo, in an effort to smooth out the online experience, will be taking the Nintendo eShop offline for 12 hours from 4pm today – 4am ET tomorrow morning. Hopefully when the network comes back up, it'll be able to handle the increased traffic (and the Pokemon Bank).
Check out the announcement, first posted on Nintendo's official Facebook page.
The Wii UTM console, and Nintendo 3DSTM systems offer exciting downloadable games, applications and entertainment once you connect your game system to the Internet*. You can purchase both retail and download-only games, free demos, and applications to enhance your experience. These prepaid cards can be redeemed on any Wii U console Nintendo eShop or Nintendo 3DS Nintendo eShop-so get connected and start downloading today*.
