    @NintendoUK Fix the online shop

  • Crow1319 Xavier (@Crow1319) reported

    @LucyPyre_ I have no real issue with them, they are just not for me, but it's funny that nintendo announced like five or six in twenty minutes

  • BanjoBM2 BanjoBM🇩🇪♥️🇺🇦 (@BanjoBM2) reported

    @NoodleSoup3000 Me too (Team Gear btw). The stupid fix from nintendo doesnt make it more balanced, just harder to trigger a actual fight.

  • SquidGamer14 RadGamer14 (@SquidGamer14) reported

    Omg Tri-colour feels nearly impossible to get into, either it comes up with an error saying there isn't enough players or it sends me into a regular battle. Why include the gamemode if you're not even going to let us play it Nintendo?

  • nikinjapan nikinjapan (@nikinjapan) reported

    @LilNickyChubb @NintendoAmerica You get a communication error

  • XandriteLive Xandrite suffers (@XandriteLive) reported

    @NintendoAmerica FIX YOUR SERVERS

  • JackerieOrRiot Cc 🐙 (@JackerieOrRiot) reported

    I swear if the Persona 3 remake is unplayable when it comes out, that's the last time any game company is getting my money within a year of its release. I guess I just gotta wait for either Nintendo to fix their online (never happening) or Potion Permit to get a patch to play.

  • HadesOmega22 fearful (@HadesOmega22) reported

    The Wii U was a mistake can we please stop bringing it up. For people who want to casually experience Nintendo's Library outside of GBA games which will be leaving the service that's it. Every game that's on it is inferior to the switch ports.

  • SimpForAxel Vicky (Simptoria) (Splatoon 3 spoiler warning) (@SimpForAxel) reported

    @CalmUxie Nintendo did say they were reducing the frequency of tricolor battles but they either made some kind of error or really thought that it would be wonderful if hardly anyone actually got to play them, bc some people STILL haven't gotten one

  • Jay_The_Dugong Jay Anthony (@Jay_The_Dugong) reported

    I seriously think the early Mario 64 worlds are waay harder than the late game ones. Tick Tock Clock? Cake walk. Wet-Dry Land? No problem. Cool Cool Mountain? Absolute freaking nightmare 😫. #Mario #Nintendo

  • DarrenZacharia3 Wiggles (@DarrenZacharia3) reported

    @Nintendo I was this brat to know I didn't make the error his Captain claimed.

  • DaSplatSquid Da Agent Beloved (@DaSplatSquid) reported

    ah yes, tricolor turf wars, rarer then the lucky splashtags themselves :| NINTENDO PLEASE FIX THIS I WANT TO PLAY OFFENSE IN THR TRICOLOR WARS FOR ONCE

  • dopperdopper1 dopperX8 (@dopperdopper1) reported

    @59UmBeIXTb3YybW The problem is whether I can get a Nintendo Switch...

  • Flyingfish322 Trans Rights🏳️‍⚧️ (@Flyingfish322) reported

    @dragularboi Not to mention a lot of the issues with Battle League could very well be poor business decisions on Nintendo’s behalf

  • daybyday1up Hioruki (@daybyday1up) reported

    I’ve got a 1,500 JPY coupon from Paypal, but I’m having trouble deciding what to use it for. Although i wanna buy a game having already released at Nintendo Store, Paypal can only be used to pay for download reservations.

  • Rand0m0bs3ss10n your socks. hand them over. (@Rand0m0bs3ss10n) reported

    @Marysquidd I got the loading screen glitch at one point I had to close and reopen the game ...and then Nintendo said that since it stuck me in a glitch I couldn't play online for 6 minutes

  • meisapoopoo 💙 (@meisapoopoo) reported

    @NintendoAmerica My tricolor Battle is not working. pleaseeeee fix this

  • XeonDingo Xeon the Dingo (@XeonDingo) reported

    @leeohleonil I've gotten 2, Nintendo said due to balancing issues they're decreasing occurrence rates until they can release a full fix

  • Vanzzini Mario Vanzzini (@Vanzzini) reported

    @NintendoAmerica You must fix Splatoon. What a terrible experience this splatfest. Not fun at all. Disconections, not even one tri color match. Really dissapointed. Only won a headache @NintenderosSup @Nintendo

  • darkcrabpotpie pot pied dark crab (@darkcrabpotpie) reported


  • Bonerman99 Bonerman (@Bonerman99) reported

    @CrashSpyroBanjo @JoeyJoJo8989 @BringBackBanjoK Nintendo doesn't like to manage people. That's their problem.

  • William56446632 oki (@William56446632) reported

    The “fix” that Nintendo proposed for Tri colour turf war just ruins it. Why didn’t they just make it a 100% chance of getting it if you selected it. I WANT to play Tri colour turf war so I should, if people don’t want to play it THEN THEY SHOULDNT SELECT IT #Splatoon

  • KeiTrains Kei - Rinari Mode (@KeiTrains) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @SplatoonNA People leaving early giving you nothing, random communication errors,and matchmaking that results in most battles being vastly one-sided really ruin a great game otherwise

  • usuallyrocket Chris @ Splatfest TEAM FUN BABEY (@usuallyrocket) reported

    @ToyotaKhamrii The issue is you can't use the "With Friends" option in Pro, only in Open. So teams are going into Open, some of which are really good and well-coordinated. It might actually be easier to win in Pro, and it feels like an oversight by Nintendo, lol

  • wallpacapaca Clark R 💗🤍💙 @ hating kids in splatoon 3 (@wallpacapaca) reported

    Hey @NintendoAmerica @Nintendo do y'all think I can maybe have ONE tricolor match? Even if I disconnect I just want to play the damn game mode #splatfest #Splatoon3

  • AuroraDeity 💙💜Aurora Deity💜💙 (@AuroraDeity) reported

    Nintendo fans, I am here to call you out. You cannot complain about nintendo porting splat 1 onto switch, call them Lazy and then buy it, because you are then becoming part of the problem you're complaining about.

  • AiddonValentine Aiddon (@AiddonValentine) reported

    @KEBrightbill @misskate This is also tangentially why video games were considered a "boy's" market; when Nintendo had to basically restart the Western game industry after the '83 crash and had to choose which market, it essentially came down to a coin flip.

  • inklypuff Inklypuff ★ Digital VTuber (@inklypuff) reported

    Anywho, i’m gonna try to repost it again sometime in the morning but if that don’t work idk what will… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Please nintendo…. Fix the splatoon 3 art posts they’re making me and other artists sad :(

  • ammoisland amanda (@ammoisland) reported

    @DonkeyWeekend it feels like it's a me issue not an internet issue but it could be. this is nintendo

  • LucarioNights 𓆉AnsemZane𓆉 (@LucarioNights) reported

    I hope Nintendo looks at how they butchered #Splatfest and actually does something to PROPERLY fix it
