Nintendo of America and Europe are Temporarily Shutting eShop’s Virtual Doors

It hasn’t been a good week for Nintendo. During the holiday traffic Nintendo eShop practically came to a halt, resulting in an outage and a delay for the Western launch of Pokémon Bank. Now it appears that eShop is closed again.

Nintendo of America took to Twitter to urge North American users to wrap up any important purchases through the digital store before 4 p.m. EST.

While Nintendo of Europe resonated the same warning for their users,

Nintendo will have “more updates soon” concerning the eShop’s status. Wii U, Wii, and DSi eShops will be unaffected.
