Nintendo eShop Down/Planned Restart Early Dec. 28 Listen to this article

NintendoEShop

No the Grinch didn’t shut down the Nintendo eShop, but Nintendo fans looking to make purchases will have to wait until 4 a.m., December 28, 2013 to use it.

Here is the notice from one of Nintendo’s Facebook pages – Nintendo Console Gaming:

“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.”

It’s been a good Nintendo holiday so far. I am looking forward to getting the Wii Fit U Meter and keeping those holiday pounds off.
