Nintendo digital shops down Tuesday for maintenance, Wii U Nintendo Direct incoming?
This coming Tuesday, November 6th could have some surprises for Nintendo fans. While everyone (in America that is) votes on the Presidential election Nintendo will be putting the eShop, Wii Shop Channel, and DSi Shop through some maintenance for 7 hours.
Could Nintendo be planning a new Nintendo Direct presentation to give away more details about the Wii U’s online and Miiverse? Would they then release some new functionality to the eShop and Wii Shop Channel that relate to that presentation? Maybe they’ll announce a ND presentation tomorrow for Tuesday or Wednesday night and when the stores go back online there could be some sort of app available to migrate downloads from the Wii to the Wii U.
There’s no word on what this maintenance will do while Nintendo digital stores are down, but you could guess that it will relate to the upcoming release of the Wii U. We’ll find out soon, though I’d keep your hopes down. Even if something major comes from this I don’t we’ll see anything about it until the next Nintendo Direct.
