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.

Awesome! I didnt even know it was down, but as a switch user it's nice to know.
Yeah, looks like everything is buckling under everyone trying to access it at once. Glad to see they can bring it back up though.
I heard about that. ISPs are reakly feeling the pinch.
