Nintendo Network & eShop Currently Down

If you just got a Wii U or 3DS for Christmas and want to get online with it, you might be like thousands and thousands of other people, as the Nintendo Network is currently down from overwhelming demand. Part of this has seemingly been attributed to Pokémon Bank’s release as well and the service has been temporarily removed from the eShop due to the issues surrounding the connectivity problems. No word on when the services will be up and running again smoothly, but I’m sure Nintendo is doing everything they can to get it fixed. Especially since this time of year is a popular time for gaming due to many people being on vacation from work/school.
