Nintendo Switch Online services, Nintendo eShop are back up

Nintendo Switch Online services and the Nintendo eShop are both back up after being down for over eight hours earlier today, likely due to an increase of usage by those self-isolating and social distancing due to the coronavirus.

Nintendo didn't explain the cause of the downtime, but advised that the service was back up.

Unfortunately, we’re having some issues with our network services. We’re looking to rectify the situation as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
