Wii U experiencing some online issues

Posted on March 28, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Some Wii U owners may be unable to connect online with Wii U for the time being. Nintendo is aware of the issues – affecting all network services – which stem from a “server fault”.

A notice posted on Nintendo’s network page reads:

Service is currently suspended due to a server fault.
We apologise for the inconvenience, and thank you
for your patience.

Time of Fault:
From (approx.) Friday, 28 March 2014 16:30 –
Still occurring

We’re also hearing that some 3DS users are experiencing issues, though Nintendo has yet to acknowledge any problems with the handheld on its website. We’ll keep this post updated with any developments.

  • Thanks for this. I was ready to blame Wii U’s glitchy wireless thing again

      What “Wii U’s glitchy wireless thing” are you referring to?

        Wireless worked fine for a year, then started going out every couple weeks or so, while all other devices functioned fine.

          I see this thread is a year old. I also notice that the problem seemed router specific. Or at least, older routers using WEP encryption. Oh well, I’ve got a newer router, so I don’t have to worry about that issue, knock wood.
