Nintendo Network services have been restored, and further connectivity issues are not expected, Nintendo confirmed in a series of tweets yesterday. After an extended period of issues prevented some users from accessing the eShop or creating a Nintendo Network ID, the service should now be fully functional across Wii, Wii U, DSi, and 3DS systems.
"We do not anticipate any further outages, but will continue to closely monitor the situation," Nintendo said. "We sincerely apologize for this week's inconsistencies and thank you again for your patience and support."
Pokemon fans remain out of luck, however, as the delayed Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter 3DS apps are still without a new launch date. Nintendo said it will share more information about these apps "as soon as possible."
Explaining the Nintendo Network outages last week, Nintendo said a "one-time surge in demand" around Christmas was the root of the problems. This was compounded by an influx of accounts being created and existing 3DS account information being moved to new Nintendo Network accounts, the company said at the time.
Nintendo took down various Wii U and 3DS online services for a period of 12 hours last week to fix the issues.
