Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter Postponed

Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter, which were supposed to be released today, have been postponed due to server overload cause by Japanese players trying to download theirs on Dec 25th. Server issues were further increased by the sheer number of people trying to set up Nintendo IDs and Wii U/3DS systems they got for Christmas. Regardless, this seems like a drastic oversight by Nintendo. If anything, the Christmas season and the release of highly anticipated DLC would have had them up their server capacity.

It is important to note that Nintendo wasn't the only company that had issues. Xbox Live, the Playstation Network, and Steam all had problems. Nintendo, however, seems to be the company having to most trouble getting everything back up and running. As for when we will be getting Bank in the states, Nintendo still hasn't given a solid date. Currently the date is "to be decided."

We'll give more information as we received it. If you want to weigh in, reply below or on our Facebook page.
