A few hours ago, Nintendo officialy announced a planned maintenance for the Miiverse and Nintendo Network, affecting both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. This will affect also leaderboards, online sessions, friend requests, personal messages etc.

Wii U / Nintendo 3DS
Every Monday from 12PM – 4PM PST (1PM – 5PM PDT)

Wii / Nintendo DS
Every Monday from 11PM to Tuesday 3AM PST (Tuesday 12AM – 4AM PDT)

The maintenance window for the following service and title are different from the above:

Wii Shopping Channel / Nintendo DSi Shop
Every Monday from 12PM – 4PM PST (1PM – 5PM PDT)

Wii \”Golden Eye 007\”
Every Thursday from 2AM – 8AM PST (3AM – 9AM PDT)
Extended Maintenance
From Monday, September 30, 2013 8:00 AM
– Monday, September 30, 2013 5:00 PM Pacific Time
Affected Services:
Wii U
– Online Play, Rankings, etc.
Nintendo 3DS
– Online Play, Rankings, etc.

The popular online services will be down for a total of nine hours on a global scale, which is a larger than usual amount of time servers are typically down for during extended Nintendo maintenance. Several blog and forum related posts hint towards an upcoming Wii U update because of this nine-hour-long downtime, but Nintendo announced that this maintenance “will be performed on servers relating to the friends feature”:

Hi everyone, I\’m Julie from Nintendo.

From now on I will be posting here whenever there is going to be a scheduled network maintenance, and other news that may relate to your Miiverse experience. Tom will still be posting about games, events and Miiverse updates like always, so don\’t worry!

Just like how you and I need to go see a doctor for a check up every once in a while, a scheduled maintenance is when the computers and networks that run Miiverse over here at Nintendo needs to take a break, and be checked up by people who can keep it running smoothly.

From 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Pacific Time on September 30th, a scheduled maintenance will be performed on servers relating to the friends feature.

During the maintenance, Miiverse features such as friend requests, block list and messages will not be working. This maintenance will also affect all games with online multiplayer gameplay. All multiplayer gameplay will not be working at this time.

If you are in the middle of an online game when the maintenance begins, the gameplay session may be interrupted.

We know that this will affect your online experience. I hope you understand that we need time to check that everything is ok with the maintenance and would appreciate your patience.

Let me also take this time to let you know that there is a scheduled maintenance that occurs weekly on every Monday from 12pm – 4pm PST, or 1pm – 5pm PDT.

For more information on scheduled maintenance and server status, please visit the Network Maintenance Information / Operational Status page on the Nintendo website.
