Nintendo will be performing routine maintenance on its servers later today (November 1st). This maintenance will affect Wii U and 3DS systems, rendering the online multiplayer of “some software” inoperable during the maintenance period. Just to note, this maintenance will not affect the Nintendo Switch system.
Here’s the timetable:
- November 1st:
6 PM – 8 PM (Pacific) / 9 PM – 11 PM (Eastern)
This maintenance is pretty short, so it shouldn’t cause too much of an issue. Just keep these times in mind later today so you don’t end up trying to play online and get confused as to why you can’t get a connection.
