Pokemon X and Y Bank US, UK release time delay

We have an important heads-up for all Pokemon X and Y players now. The highly anticipated Pokemon X and Y Bank and transporter release date has been delayed, meaning that we now won’t see both services available to players on December 27 as originally intended.

Both the Poke Bank and Poke Transporter are already available for Japanese and Korean gamers. However, Nintendo has now confirmed that the Poke Bank release date for US and UK Pokemon X and Y has been delayed.

This has been confirmed with a statement on Nintendo’s website, which we’ve included for you below:

It reads: “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.”

As you can see, the reason is solely due to the Nintendo Network, which we’re guessing that Nintendo are worried will become unstable with everyone using Poke Bank at the same time on December 27.

Perhaps the most disappointing thing about this, is that there is no new release date scheduled for the Poke Bank after this delay. Nintendo are yet to comment on this publicly other than their statement above, so hopefully we’ll be able to bring you a revised date soon.

Are you looking for the Poke Bank release in US and UK today? If so, give us your thoughts on the delay.
