Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • MachoBeard David Krogh (@MachoBeard) reported

    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Windjammers is on sale in the @Nintendo eShop!!!!!

  • Maksimiljian Maksimilian ☭ (@Maksimiljian) reported

    Bob Dylan even started an official Bootleg Series, to cash in on what his fans where already doing since the sixties. Zelda-fans have made some great games/mods and are able to fill in the horribly broken timeline and plotholes better than Nintendo would or could.

  • TallestTim TallTim (@TallestTim) reported

    @edwardlamb Is this because of the drift? I thought Nintendo were replacing any that were subjected to the drift problems.

  • Shotokin Shotokin (@Shotokin) reported

    after all who knows, we could get GC and Wii for the NSO service (as if bc nintendo is being dumb as hell) and they could just be added on there

  • BookshopLinda Linda's Little Bookshop (@BookshopLinda) reported

    @ShakinthatChalk I have the same issue with my daughter but for a Nintendo switch. I told her there is not a chance she is getting a £300 gift at that age.She is now 8 and I may let her have one for Christmas. 🤷

  • Belmont326 RoA/EVA^ Belmont (BurnerV3) #ReimuForSmash (@Belmont326) reported

    @KoreanJesus11 KJ needs your help He wants to wifi but he doesn't have nintendo switch online But it's ok you can fix his massive problem all he needs is your credit card info and the 3 numbers on the back but you have to be quick about it KJ needs his wifi dub.

  • WonkyDrive Wonky (@WonkyDrive) reported

    When offline returns I am cancelling my nintendo switch online subscription until they fix the servers. Smash online is a joke

  • MelloMakes 2 Mello (@MelloMakes) reported

    For me, the highlight of the Nintendo Switch Online service is that they actually got all three of those on there. If you've never played, go see what I'm talking about with the cushion of save states/rewind!

  • __codexterous Andy (@__codexterous) reported

    @ShakinthatChalk I play Nintendo Switch with mine and also have an Xbox (altho only used for TV/Netflix, etc) at the moment. If he wanted to play it too I wouldn’t have an issue with it. Setting the norms for how it’s used in no different to anything else.

  • ChosenGozen Tomoe (@ChosenGozen) reported

    @MusumeNovel The biggest problem with Saturn wasn't even that, it's that they lied to their devs they got during the Genesis that came from Nintendo, lied to them about how much time they'd have for making Saturn games, pushed the launch up of the Saturn by a lot and they only found out by

  • Darth_Trethon DarthTrethon 🅿️ro🎮 (@Darth_Trethon) reported

    @jsfil96 I mean Xbox is trash but not dogs*** like Nintendo. If you're an adult looking at crap like Animal Crossing, Mario, etc. thinking "yeah, that's worth my time" then that's a problem.

  • Astroliner86 💙💜Pastel Stars💙💜🔞#StopAsianHate (@Astroliner86) reported

    Animal crossing New horizons makes you plant over 100 flowers. But the cleanup app doesn't let you remove any flowers or any sticks or anything that might get in the way of you terraforming only regular items to be put in the trash. Nintendo fix this

  • SRetro64 SuperRetro64 (@SRetro64) reported

    @whatusaymark @nintendolife In the case it's just parts shortages, Nintendo really can't fix that issue unless the Switch starts to sell significantly less.

  • Nikodaproto 🏳️‍🌈 Niko da proto 🏳️‍🌈 (@Nikodaproto) reported

    I have a question for ppl that streams, if sometime i stream something related with nintendo i will be in trouble? Just asking bc i wanna start streaming soon and i dont wanna mess it up cause i heard that nintendo is really serious when a character or a game appears on video uwu

  • GaahrmGrae Gaahrm (@GaahrmGrae) reported

    @LibraScopeYT Are we talking just about Nintendo here or is this problem starting to pop up in PlayStation and Xbox? I’m out of the loop I think

  • Jayforces Jay (@Jayforces) reported

    @race_penguin The only games i'll ever pirate are EGS exclusives, Crash 4 (bc of the always online thing) and probably Nintendo games because I honestly don't wanna give them my money anymore.

  • Yokaiger Yо̄kaiger (@Yokaiger) reported

    @AspyrMedia The performance on the Nintendo Switch port is terrible. If Doom: Eternal can run at 30FPS, this game should be able to hold 60 with no issues.

  • Gr8MightyDaddy Dwayne (@Gr8MightyDaddy) reported

    @CheapyD I ended up calling Nintendo Customer service to get it all set up. My daughter is 15 now. Good luck.

  • Furryplant furry piranha plant (@Furryplant) reported

    also fun thing Nintendo really hated region changed Korean wiis (just Korean for some reason) If you have one it would give error 003.

  • leathermxuth jess (@leathermxuth) reported

    @JohnLewisRetail I never do this but needed to say, I just spoke to two guys called Sam and Connor on the phone with your technical support with an issue with my Nintendo switch and honestly could not sing their praises higher. They were both lovely, took their time with me and -

  • CheapyD David Abrams (@CheapyD) reported

    And if anyone knows how to make a “Supervised” child’s account… not that…let me know. His birthday is listed as being over 13 so idk wtf is going on but it’s preventing me from sharing Nintendo Online service. Pretty sweet solution.

  • doubleamr9 Double-AMR_9 (@doubleamr9) reported

    @Jens_Drawings I don’t think Nintendo would issue a cease and desist after 2 years. Besides, when does Nintendo care about when their competition’s work outside of video games?

  • TheMallTea MallTea (@TheMallTea) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @NintendoUK @Nintendo PLEASE fix your online for Smash Bros. Ultimate it shouldn't be this bad considering every other company has figured out online already. Fans have made better internet for YOUR games. Stop being Disney, and start being how we remember you.

  • KharloKong Nintendo GayPube (@KharloKong) reported

    @Eccentric0_zero You're not wrong but the issue isn't so much the immediate outcome, it's that it gave Nintendo success by making them rethink the problem of expensive game development and hardware cost. What they did with the Wii wasn't JUST about one console, it became a philosophy

  • VeganDeep 🥚DeepFriedVegan⛵ (@VeganDeep) reported

    @Sanic_SSBU @prowerrr_ Yeah it really sucks. I understand not being able to set it up because the router is downstars, you gotta drill a hole in the wall and whaterver, but powerline adaptors also exist to avoid this problem? If you can afford a switch, the game and nintendo online then you can afford-

  • meowindira raven (@meowindira) reported

    @COZYKlD I believe if you mail them in to nintendo they’ll fix them free of charge? not sure if that helps

  • LStalinsky Leif Stalinsky (@LStalinsky) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @BNEesports you can easy count the lag spikes right now in #SWT2021 . Fix #smash online.

  • DominicanRetard Chad Status (@DominicanRetard) reported

    How the hell has drift on controllers ONLY NOW become a major problem Sure it would happen on other controllers, but it’s so prevelent now and probably so easy to stop, i can say so because nintendo has had some WONKY controllers that require a frick ton of movement, (1/2)

  • CoppermineTypeK Coppermine (@CoppermineTypeK) reported

    @iivallerieii Honestly one of the main issues (aside from being a bit shallow in content as everyone knows) was that Nintendo didn't advertise the fact motion controls weren't mandatory enough

  • DaMaverickAlien TheMaverickAlien (@DaMaverickAlien) reported

    @jakedasenpai Short answer: Nintendo games+Traditionally Handheld/Nintendo released games. Also, why limit yourself to one screen at home or to streaming games where lag isn't an issue when you can get (most) what you care about in a handheld that can go anywhere & also dock?
