Nintendo has scheduled some routine network maintenance for the Switch. It will be taking place tonight (April 9, 2018). The maintenance will last for a relatively short period of time, so it shouldn’t cause a massive amount of inconvenience. This maintenance is only for the Switch, so Wii U and 3DS players will be unaffected.
Here’s the schedule:
- APRIL 9, 2018 – Switch – 6:50 PM to 8: 30 PM (Pacific) / 9:50 PM to 11:30 PM (Eastern)
According to Nintendo, this maintenance is for the “online play of some software” and will render “some network services unavailable”. So, if you have trouble connecting in an online match later tonight, it could be due to this maintenance.
