Japan - Nintendo online services suffer downtime, Google takes the blame

On Aug. 25th in Japan, online services for the Nintendo Switch, Wii U and 3DS went offline. There were connectivity issues for up to a few hours, but today we learn it wasn't Nintendo behind the problem.

Turns out Google is the one to blame, as there were issues with the networks of NTT Communications Corp. and KDDI Corp. The issue cropped up when "overseas network service provider that OCN uses suddenly switched internet routes" Google stepped forward to apologize, and said the problems stemmed from a "network configuration error"
