Starting today, Nintendo will be performing some server maintenance that may cause the service to be unavailable.

In fact, Nintendo’s server maintenance has already begun. The company is currently working on the backup data cloud for Nintendo Switch Online services. This work will continue for the next 24 hours. While the work is in progress, there is a risk that some services may be temporarily unavailable.
