The big downtime is 10:00PM Pacific to 11:30PM Pacific

Recommended Videos

If you’re looking to go online and play some Switch, Wii U, or 3DS games today, you may want to be aware of all of the upcoming maintenance times.

The big one so to speak is from 10:00PM Pacific through 11:30PM Pacific on March 13, which could impact the entire eShop and all network services. Earlier than that at 9PM Pacific, Nintendo is working on credit card services (including child Nintendo account creation in the US), followed by the aforementioned service, which impacts pretty much every facet of Nintendo Online. In addition to general maintenance, Nintendo is also still addressing Splatoon and Mario Kart 8 “vulnerabilities” on Wii U, which were reported earlier this month. That situation is still ongoing.

Ideally, this should be all wrapped up by the early morning of Tuesday March 14 (US). And good thing too, as I’ve been playing some of Mario Kart 8‘s Wave 4 online!
