The Switch eShop Is Scheduled For Maintenance On September 18th At 8pm ET “In Preparation For The Switch Online Launch”

Nintendo confirmed that the Nintendo Switch Online service would launch on September 18th in North America, with a UK launch happening the following day. Well, preparations have to be made, and Nintendo has just confirmed that the Nintendo Switch eShop will be undergoing maintenance on September 18th at 5pm Pacific Time, or 8pm Eastern. The Switch eShop will not be available for “up to 3 hours”.

After the maintenance is done, version 6.0.0 will be available in the Switch eShop, and you will be able to purchase a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. However, there is a catch. According to Nintendo, “it will no longer be possible to unlink your Nintendo Account from your Nintendo Switch user”. More details on the service will be announced at tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct.
