Pokemon Bank cloud service put on hold
The launch of Nintendo's 3DS apps Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter has been delayed in Western regions, following problems with their initial Japanese release on the 25th.
"As you may know, we are currently experiencing a large volume of traffic on the Nintendo Network service. Due to the high traffic, we are postponing the launch of Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter until further notice," Nintendo said in a statement
on Facebook. They were slated to launch today in the West, and were pulled from Nintendo's Japanese eShop this week after service disruptions.
Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter are apps that allow players to store and to transfer
their virtual creatures to the cloud.
