If you've just opened your new Nintendo Switch consoles for the holidays, I have some bad news. The Nintendo eShop is down.
Since this morning, logging into the Nintendo eShop has led to a code 2813-0009 error message instead of taking you into Nintendo's digital games store. So unless you got your games physically alongside your Switch, you don't have access to any games at the moment.
Nintendo has tweeted an apology and is currently working on resolving the issue.
We apologize for any issues you may be experiencing with Nintendo eShop. We are working on it and hope to have this resolved soon.— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) December 25, 2017
Hopefully it will get resolved before the end of the day as I'd hate for new users to be left stranded without the great games on the Switch. You can only appreciate its form factor for so long.
