Nintendo Network Maintenance Scheduled For Just Before The Hyrule Warriors Direct

Is Nintendo planning something extra for today?

Earlier this year Nintendo dropped its regular Nintendo Network maintenance slots in favour of ad-hoc arrangements, but the latest confirmed work has caught our attention. It takes place today, and concludes just one hour before the upcoming Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Direct; the two may not end up being linked, but the timing is interesting.

Details from Nintendo's official website are below, while we've brought together the times for various regions.

From Monday, August 4 at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern / 1am UK / 3am CET until Monday, August 4 at 7pm Pacific / 10pm Eastern / 3am UK / 4am CET

Affected Services:

Wii U

  • Online Play, Rankings, etc.

Nintendo 3DS

  • Online Play, Rankings, etc.

That's a finish planned for just one hour before the Hyrule Warriors Direct, which takes place at 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern / 4am UK (5th August) and 5am CET.

In addition, some maintenance for Steel Diver: Sub Wars is scheduled:

From Tuesday, August 5 at 5:50pm Pacific / 8:50pm Eastern / 1:50am UK / 2:50am CET until Tuesday, August 5 at 7pm Pacific / 10pm Eastern / 3am UK / 4am CET

Affected Services:

Nintendo 3DS

  • Online Play, Rankings, etc. for Steel Diver: Sub Wars

The similar times across both days suggests this may just be the standard window Nintendo's adopting, though will nevertheless keep us a little more intrigued as the Hyrule Warriors Direct airs. We'll see soon, and we'll be doing our usual live text and video streaming of the broadcast here at Nintendo Life.

With thanks to Azooooz for the heads up.
