Nintendo Network troubled by Internal Server Error messages


Those who have received either a Wii U or 3DS for Christmas may find themselves encountering issues when creating a Nintendo Network ID, Nintendo of America have acknowledged.

Whilst the company are hard at work to rectify the situation, some users are being troubled by an “Internal Server Error” message during the account creation process. Nintendo recommend that if you continue to receive the error with your requested NNID, that you try again with a different selection.

“Hi, everyone. We’re aware that some of you are encountering issues with eShop and creating NNIDs,” they wrote on Twitter. “Our team is working hard to resolve them and we are truly sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you for your patience!”
