The Wii U and 3DS eShops, Wii Shopping Channel, and DSi Shop have been undergoing maintenance since 10 PM / 7 PM PT yesterday. Nintendo said that the downtime could last up to 24 hours, though it looks like everything has wrapped up early than expected.

Nintendo just tweeted out a message indicating that its latest round of maintenance has completed. It reads:

Nintendo’s various shops are undergoing some heavy maintenance in just a few days. This will begin Sunday evening for those of you in North America and in the very early morning on Monday over in Europe. The Wii U and 3DS eShops, Wii Shopping Channel, and DSi Shop will be affected.

The upcoming maintenance is particularly notable due to its length. It seems that the maintenance period will last nearly an entire day.

Here’s the full breakdown of times:

– 7 PM PT (Sunday) – 7 PM PT (Monday)
– 10 PM ET (Sunday) – 10 PM ET (Monday)
– 3 AM in the UK (Monday) – 3 AM in the UK (Tuesday)
– 4 AM in Europe (Monday) – 4 AM in Europe (Tuesday)

As for the reasoning behind the downtime, Nintendo says that it’s planning a large-scale exchange of servers. It’s also possible that the maintenance will end a bit early, though you should definitely expect it to take awhile!

Update (10/17): Nintendo’s latest maintenance plans have been changed again. First, there will no longer be shop maintenance. Nintendo Network ID maintenance is still taking place at the times listed originally (see the very bottom of this post). Finally, Wii U and 3DS online features (rankings, etc.) will be down on Monday at the following times:

– 2 PM PT – 7 PM PT
– 5 PM ET – 10 PM ET
– 10 PM in the UK – 3 AM in the UK (Tuesday)
– 11 PM in Europe – 4 AM in Europe (Tuesday)


Update (10/16): Bumped to the top. The “All” maintenance we mentioned previously has now been updated to say “Using Nintendo Network ID”. So in addition to eShop maintenance, Nintendo Network ID will also be affected.


Original (10/14): Nintendo’s various online shops will be undergoing maintenance on Monday. That includes the Wii U and 3DS eShops, Wii Shopping Channel, and DSi Shop.

The maintenance period is planned for the following times:

– 1 PM PT – 5 PM PT
– 4 PM ET – 8 PM ET
– 9 PM in the UK – 1 AM in the UK (Tuesday)
– 10 PM in Europe – 2 AM in Europe (Tuesday)

For Wii U and 3DS, in addition to eShop maintenance, Nintendo listed “All”. I’m not quite sure what that means, but perhaps something else will be affected aside from the eShops.
