Nintendo has announced it will be performing scheduled network maintenance on both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS, which will affect online system functionality. This extended maintenance will be right before the live-stream of the Hyrule Warriors Direct, so it’s possible we could see a system update announced, though Nintendo has not said anything about it. Here are the scheduled hours for several regions: USA East: 8pm to 10pm USA West: 5pm to 7pm UK: 1 am to 3am (Aug 5) Europe: 2 am to 4 am (Aug 5) Japan: 9am to 11am (Aug 5) Remember to tune in to the Nintendo Direct tonight if you’re in the United States. For Europeans, you’ll have to stay up extra late in order to catch it. local_offer Nintendo nintendo direct nintendo network wii u stars Further Reading A photo of Nintendo’s first office in 1 Nintendo Direct Mini video is now up Nintenjoe82 Half Life 3 confirmed Devesh WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, NO linkzero65 i’m dyeing lilmc01 Hyrule Warriors demo confirmed. Daniel Golightly Good Om I hope so Petri I hope they add some demos of upcoming games, especially Bayonetta 2. HotInEER I agree. The demos now are a joke. Petri I havent tried any other demo than W101, because usually they release those after the game releases, and I already have it. But I’m glad I got W101, even though the demo felt kinda lame. Virus6 Smash Bros too would be godly. Geoffrey Tasker i just want to be able to use the wii u pad to play wii games give me that and i’m good Virus6 I’d love to be able to use Wii U controllers for Wii mode. Sucks going back to play Smash or Xenoblade and needing to find the Wiimote and batteries >_> thedeciderU can’t agree more, but i kind of doubt it will happen. bistricky Great idea …. I hope they do that soon. Petri Rather wake up extra early, Direct is airing 6am for me, just in time when I wake up. But if I were in U.K, I would go to sleep and wake up earlier, rather than stay awake until 4am. Mayoo Only in United States, because nothing else exists in that timezone … Sheik Live in Sweden, Hyrule Warriors Direct at 5 am, sleep or stay awake, STAY AWAKE OF COURCE!!!! I CAN’T MISS SOMETHING AWESOME LIKE THAT!!!!! DC777 Well there was an update but I don’t see what’s new. ChariotMan7 I wonder how much 1GB of ram for OS. is left for the Wii U after all these updates. Spencer Manigat Dear god, I hope they update with cloud storage. I can dream.
