Pokemon Bank Release Date Pushed Back


Nintendo has removed Pokemon Bank from the Japanese eShop and pushed back the English release of Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter indefinitely, citing high volumes of traffic as the reason for the delay. The software, which allows you to store Pokemon in the cloud and transfer Pokemon from 5th generation games to X and Y, was due to be released around the world today.

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International have postponed the launch of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter – two software applications that were originally scheduled to launch for Nintendo 3DS on Dec. 27 – due to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service. Due to the high traffic, players are having trouble setting up Nintendo Network IDs and downloading content in the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. We truly regret the inconvenience, and wish to reassure everyone that providing a solution is our top priority. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your continued patience.

No new release date has been set yet.
