Nintendo continues to work away on the issues surrounding both eShops. At the very least, the situation seems to be improving, as users in different territories have been reporting successful connections.

In order to (hopefully) address things once and for all, the eShops will be going down for a 12-hour period today. The digital stores will be unavailable starting at 4 PM ET (1 PM PT, 10 PM CET, 6 AM Japan time) today, and lasting through 4 AM ET (1 AM PT, 10 AM CET, 6 PM Japan time) tomorrow.

Nintendo of America also posted the following on its Facebook page:

We sincerely apologize for the connection problems in the Nintendo eShop. 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. In an effort to manage the high volume of traffic and ultimately improve your experience, we are temporarily taking the Nintendo eShop services offline between the hours of 4 p.m. – 4 a.m. ET. Thank you so much for your continued patience. We will keep you updated.
