Pokémon Bank returns to ‘certain Asian countries’

Following the delay of the Pokémon Bank's release — as a result of a number of eShop issues — Nintendo of America has announced that "certain Asian countries" will have access to the app this week.

For those unfamiliar, the Pokémon Bank is an app that allows you to transfer Pokémon from prior generations into Pokémon X & Y, while also allowing you to store creatures via boxes in the cloud — for a monthly fee of course.

Nintendo of America urges Pokémon fans to stay tuned to "social channels" for updates on availability in  North America. Of course, we'll be sure to keep an eye out and notify you as soon as we learn more.
