Last night’s release of a Monster Hunter Rise demonstration appears to have crashed the Nintendo Switch eShop.
The trial variation of Capcom’s upcoming beastie basher was launched at midnight last night, following a Nintendo Direct loaded with juicy brand-new information about the video game.
Switch owners reported struggles attempting to download the demo overnight, and today the Switch eShop is currently unreachable in the UK. At the time of composing, attempting to link to the eShop brings up the following message:
“The server is currently going through upkeep. We apologise for the hassle. Please try once again later on.
“See the Nintendo Support site for more information on server status and upkeep schedules: support.nintendo.com/switch/error”
