From its Twitter account and maintenance page, Nintendo of America indicated that there are problems with Switch’s eShop. According to the reports, some users cannot enter the store, and when they try it, they receive an error message.
If this happened to you today in the morning, do not worry, because the company is already working on a solution. Nintendo has not revealed the cause of the problem, but it is estimated that it is due to the large flow of players trying to access the store. So, take into account that you might also have difficulty entering the eShop of the other Nintendo consoles.
At the moment, Nintendo has not updated the status of its servers, but they hope to resolve it soon. The company also shared new information about the maintenance that Switch, Wii U, and 3DS will receive.
On the other hand, take into account that you will not be able to access the online game starting at 10 PM tomorrow, December 26th. This maintenance period applies to the 3 consoles of the company.
Nintendo also confirmed that today you will not be able to access the online services of certain games for a couple of hours, including Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pokémon Sun & Moon, and Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon. The online game will be suspended in these titles starting at December 25, 2017, 5 :00 PM. The service will be restored 2 hours later.
In another news, Nintendo Switch has already sold more than 10 million units worldwide. The latest reports indicate that it is about to surpass the initial sales of PlayStation 2 in Japan.
