Nintendo Switch system update version 6.0.0 has been scheduled for the 19th of September 2018 (Wednesday). After this system update is released, Nintendo eShop will be under maintenance for a brief period of time. Nintendo eShop will not be accessible during the maintenance window below. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Maintenance Date and Time
September 19th, 2018 (Wednesday)
10:00am – 13:00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time
After the maintenance is complete, Nintendo Switch Online memberships will be available for purchase. Nintendo Switch owners won’t automatically become members when the service starts, so they will need to purchase an individual or family membership in order to avoid disruption of their online play in compatible games. Memberships can be purchased or redeemed through Nintendo eShop once the maintenance is complete.
Note that you must update your Nintendo Switch console to system version 6.0.0 or the latest version to access Nintendo eShop after the maintenance.
