Nintendo eShop

If you’ve been having trouble with the Switch eShop today, you can rest easy knowing that you’re not alone. For whatever reason, the store isn’t operating normally. You may be unable to connect to the eShop, navigate different pages, or even make purchases.

We happened to notice this a few hours ago, though there was no word from Nintendo itself. Now, however, the company’s maintenance page has updated, stating that it is “experiencing difficulties with our network services.”

Nintendo doesn’t provide any sort of estimate as to when the situation will be fully resolved. Hopefully it’ll all be taken care of soon enough.
