Japan - My Nintendo Store goes live, crashes from traffic

The My Nintendo Store has gone live in Japan. It's the place where you can order your Nintendo Switch online, and even mix-and-match your Joy-Con colors. Looks like Japan was quite eager for their Switch preorders, as the site has crashed and burned! It's still down for the moment, but should come back to life shortly.

Thanks to Dan for the heads up!

A rumor is floating around about Nintendo Network accounts and passwords leaking. This is the kind of rumor you don't want to play it safe with.

Let's just be on the safe side and change our passwords now and avoid any potential headaches later. Thanks to cm30 and Peen2 for the heads up.

Since the Switch isn't even out yet, I might be a little nervous about picking one of these skins up. I'm hoping the creator took the time to get the measurements correct. If all is on the up-and-up, there are some pretty sweet designs here!
