North American release issue

When the game was first released in North America on 25th December 2017, Nintendo eShop could not be accessed, making Styling Star impossible to download. The reason for this was most likely the eShop crashing due to overuse, as it was Christmas Day. Nintendo acknowledged the issue and by 4pm EST, the Nintendo eShop servers began working again.
