    Yeah, I was trying to open the eShop this morning and kept getting a "down for maintenance" message. Now, it asks me to update.



    Been going for 10 mins, hopefully this update will fix the download speeds too X_X

    Apparently there is a new firmware for 3DS as well. Both devices getting an update just before the new Nintendo Direct broadcasts. Coincidence? or is something coming? :P

    Miiverse arrives on the 3DS with Nintendo ID support? Here's hoping!

    Is it okay to turn the WiiU off if this is just updating in the background?

    I'm going to download this tonight at midnight when hopefully the Australian Nintendo servers aren't being completely bombarded. Speedy download = win.

    Started the download about 20 mins ago. The progress bar hasn't moved very far in that time. :(

    *Edit* Almost an hour down and only 1/2 way! This is taking much longer than the original update for me.

    one thing they need to do is make the estimated time left part clearer

    mine says 7:46, does this mean it will be finished at 7:46 or it will finish in 7 minutes and 46 seconds or 7 hours and 46 minutes
