Nintendo 3DS Getting Five Hour Maintenance Tonight

Expect to see some drops in service tonight on Nintendo 3DS — Nintendo is following through with the next round of maintenance for Nintendo 3DS from 7 to 11:59 PM Eastern (4 to 9 PM Pacific). News comes by way of Nintendo’s own network maintenance page, which specifically notes that online play, rankings, and more will be going down for Nintendo’s handheld platform.

While this kind of regular maintenance is standard for Nintendo consoles, there is a decent chance that Nintendo is preparing for its (currently in effect) National StreetPass Holiday. Either way, if you were planning some Pokemon Sun and Moon battles or some co-op play in Metroid Prime: Federation Force tonight, you better start rescheduling now.
