Ten hours, zero splats. UPDATED: Earlier start announced

UPDATE JANUARY 8: The maintenance has been updated to commence at 5 p.m. Eastern / 2 p.m. Pacific Monday. Original story follows.

The next Nintendo Network maintenance period has been announced.

"Online play, leaderboards (some online services)" are listed as being affected for both Wii U and 3DS, starting at 8 p.m. Eastern / 5 p.m. Pacific time next Monday (January 11) and stretching to 6 a.m. Eastern / 3 a.m. Pacific on the 12th.

It isn't clear what is meant by "some online services", whether that means the eShop, Miiverse or Nintendo Account functions for Japan is unclear.

The Badge Arcade Bunny is being put out of business.

Hopefully it's related to setting up the Nintendo Account system

I get bumped from the Xenoblade server pretty often. Hopefully this helps with that.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was related to the Nintendo Account system. They never gave a date I believe for the Americas. The March date was for Australia and that part of world I think.
