Nintendo has scheduled a bit of maintenance for early next week. All eShops will be impacted – Switch, 3DS, and Wii U.

Here’s the full schedule:

Nikkei recently published a lengthy interview with Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa, who spoke about his philosophy on running the company, how they view their IPs, and more.

One of the bigger topics he unpacks is how smartphones have influenced the video game market and what dedicated consoles can bring to the table today. Furukawa feels that while many people are able to enjoy gaming on their phones, advances in technology can still provide interesting concepts to base new dedicated hardware on, like the Switch’s Joy-Con.
