Super Mario Maker is Down Until Thursday/Friday Due to Network Bug

on January 27, 2016 2:56 PM

I hope you weren’t planning on playing Super Mario Maker before the weekend. According to Nintendo’s Network Maintenance page, the hit content-creator title is experiencing longer-than-usual outages. The original maintenance was scheduled for a few hours yesterday, but has since been extended to continue until Friday at 1:00 AM GMT — roughly 8 PM ET tomorrow night.

While the cause of the issue is largely unknown, Nintendo has confirmed that there will be a mandatory update that players will need to install when everything is said and done.
