Nintendo Switch will go offline on Monday and into Tuesday for its first maintenance period.


Console maintenance isn’t a new occurrence, but it’s always nice to know ahead of time when systems, in this case Switch, will be taken offline.

During this time, maintenance will also be performed on 3DS and Wii U, and down time will last around six hours. In Europe and the UK, the systems will go offline on March 7.

Here’s the schedule courtesy of Nintendo Everything:

  • US: 8pm PT (March 6) – 2am PT (March 7)
  • US: 11pm ET (March 6) – 5am ET (March 7)
  • UK: 4am -10am (March 7)
  • Europe: 5am -11am (March 7)

Nintendo released its latest gaming system yesterday, March 3.
