Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • DanielleAlek Danielle Alek (@DanielleAlek) reported

    @Kemdizzzle That's a pretty cynical viewpoint that kinda highlights a lot of problems with Smash, the idea that it's basically a big billboard and therefore only currently relavent characters get to be in it. Probs why there's so many FE characters; Nintendo siezing the chance to advertise.

  • LolOlive1155 Olive (@LolOlive1155) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Fix my game

  • jasonthinks Jason (@jasonthinks) reported

    I sincerely hope (but seriously doubt) Nintendo keeps economic data on Animal Crossing. It would be so fascinating to see how the economy responded to the dupe glitch and the turnip price formula getting cracked.

  • KjoDevilHunterS Genki|Kenny O'Shay 🎮 Setsuka for SC6 (@KjoDevilHunterS) reported

    These links not working,Nintendo is the only one of the 3 console platforms that doesn't give away free games. There's enough now for them to do so with the Nintendo Switch. They don't even have a Nintendo Select line of games for $20 like Super Mario Odyssey&LoZ BotW 1.

    @LolOlive1155 WTF DID IT JUST GLITCH OUT, SEND THAT TO NINTENDO

  • Epsilon42_ Epsilon (@Epsilon42_) reported

    Nintendo switch online is a paid service

  • mossy_dahlia Bellionaire Rinny (@mossy_dahlia) reported

    @totallynotjon_ @ontosTorin @Alpharad It’s not like the dupe glitch, it’s an active gameplay mechanic that isn’t harming or abusing any system to a game-breaking extent. Bans/Punishments would have to be a case-by-case investigation and frankly I don’t think Nintendo would care enough to implement that.

  • CoffeeOttHazel Hazel (@CoffeeOttHazel) reported

    And COD wasn't the only game to do this, just about every game i played from the 360 era and onwards has DLC and an online service. Nintendo makes legit console games now, so they have to do it to keep their servers up.

  • rosavertov Barbara, the chronic handwasher 🧼 (@rosavertov) reported

    @huntingmydress Nintendo needs to fix this! I hate knowing that they live in such bum houses. The exterior of Genji’s house is like traditional Kyoto themed so to see the interior as plain wood is sad tbh

  • Rick27Thicc ThiccRick (@Rick27Thicc) reported

    @N4keZer0 @Louis5522063 @E_Richtofen @Atlus_West I'm not, I dont prefer any company over another I honestly prefer nintendo tbh especially considering their online service prices, even tho some can be really bad. Also just saying, emulating is an option but you wont be supporting atlus, but that's up to you

  • NightSurgeon28 🎃 I Love Comics & Movies 🎃 (@NightSurgeon28) reported

    @Dragonrider790 I like the classics... I'm tempted to sign for Nintendo's online service to play NES and SNES.

  • stelledair Alice (@stelledair) reported

    Imagine being so braindamaged to blame gamefreak for Nintendo switch online service when its literally ******* called Nintendo online service

  • MercuryCrusader Mercury Crusader (@MercuryCrusader) reported

    The big problem with playing PC games with an Xbox One controller is that I'm so used to the Nintendo four-button annotations that going to Xbox (or PlayStation half the time) button annotation mixes me up. Yakuza 0 QTEs are a nightmare for me, I keep hitting X for Y, etc.

  • stelledair Alice (@stelledair) reported

    @anonymousimd @Pokemon If someone only got Nintendo switch online for pokemon the that's their own problem because it's for EVERY game that's online compatable.

  • VIP3R187 VIPER (@VIP3R187) reported

    @The_CrapGamer @JayDubcity16 Well you know it's sad when 97% of XBOX exclusive games could run on a Nintendo Switch without any problems. except Forza /regular Gears /Halo. Nintendo doesn't need power because it has the GAMES.

  • KrisMiller650 Kris Miller (@KrisMiller650) reported

    Nintendo. The fact that this won’t be taken seriously is not ok. You need to listen to your customers. We give you money and you won’t even fix a game that needs fixing. Pathetic. You have millions of fans and you won’t even listen to them. Incredibly ******* sad #fixsmashonline

  • ramavalos_YT ramavalos_YT (@ramavalos_YT) reported

    @edwin_excell A big issue is the fact that Nintendo and Sony aren't allowing a mixer app on their platforms

  • lerminator3 lerminator3 (@lerminator3) reported

    @NintendoAmerica You have to fix #KINDESS IN #ACNH. It’s a problem. I would love the game a lot more if you fixed it. #kindess

  • DrakeHenning Beats by Drake (@DrakeHenning) reported

    @miIkcrossing @liamrgevans Mine were so unbelievably ******, I'm glad Nintendo can fix them for lots of us at no charge

  • kittenishcutie kittenish cutie (@kittenishcutie) reported

    .@NintendoAmerica For over an hour straight it has been nothing but Bells and eggs from the balloons. Over an hour. No cherry blossom recipes. Please fix this. #AnimalCrossingNewHorizons

  • takoyakiemi 🍒🌸 𝚎𝚖𝚒 🍓🌈 (@takoyakiemi) reported

    I really wish Nintendo would fix this, so that the correct sound to the path that was initially placed, stays when you walk/run.

  • SaoGaming3 Watermelon spy (@SaoGaming3) reported

    @NintendoAmerica what the hell is the problem with your internet

  • ThatBowTieBitch Devan (@ThatBowTieBitch) reported

    Welp. Kind forgot about my Nintendo DS. Sooo it looks like I’m downloading animal crossing to get my fix in there

    I Need To Figure Out Where Can I Find A Place That Fix Game Consoles I Need My Nintendo Switch Fixed 😒

  • RichBish91 Rich M. (@RichBish91) reported

    @dillzilla99 @JONofW4R @Brev2034 @JayDubcity16 Muting. I understand that you don't like trying to fix things, but blaming it on Sony won't solve anything. They don't use tri wing screws to get into them like Nintendo. So it's doable to replace a battery. Have a safe night, buddy.

  • GRANTsounds Satoru Gojo (@GRANTsounds) reported

    Copped my girl new joycons and they deadass started drifting right out the box. I'm beyond livid. This is collectively our FOURTH pair with this issue, @Nintendo needs to figure out a way to fix this.

  • TheVGEnthusiast Josh (@TheVGEnthusiast) reported

    @tf2_doc This is on my 3DS that was sent to Nintendo, and they couldn't fix it so I got a new one. It came with parental controls already on (so it hasn't accessed the internet) and Pixar shorts.

  • tearleft2cry marissa ☆ (@tearleft2cry) reported

    @deluxejvstin ari gave this girl sera money because she was have financial issues and sera bought herself a nintendo switch

  • OurBraveHero Our Brave Hero (@OurBraveHero) reported

    It's reeeeeal dumb that Nintendo didn't have the hindsight to include a "try again" option when an island is full and you want to try to rejoin with a Dodo Code you input. Having to disconnect and reconnect to the internet and input the Dodo code multiple times is frustrating.

  • yellowchulie ℳøℳøˢʲ ♡ Bernie Sanders (@yellowchulie) reported

    @Nellichka_ @NintendoAmerica please fix it

  • heythereimfaith alexis ♡ @acnh ! (@heythereimfaith) reported

    @MojangSupport hey can you guys help me out i can’t connect my microsoft account to my minecraft game on my switch and i need this to happen tonight and microsoft and nintendo both said to contact you cz they had never even heard of this issue before

  • purana purana (@purana) reported

    @seamus I am seriously considering the purchase for myself and activation of the Nintendo Switch service thing for the year to play it.

  • MsAshEsq Lola Bunny (@MsAshEsq) reported

    Downloaded Crash Bandicoot for Ny Nintendo Switch...it’s officially MY Nintendo now 😂😂😂

  • fangbosseu sia (@fangbosseu) reported

    Nintendo please fix the loading times/screens when people visit others’ islands

  • RangoSSB Rango (@RangoSSB) reported

    @SoundFontPlus @FatalityFalcon Just remake N64 PM and TTYD. Problem solved. I don't have much faith in Nintendo giving PM fans what they want unfortunately.

  • ManOfLedbury Marc Cormier (@ManOfLedbury) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Real glad you have dealt with the joy-con issues. I have gone through 4 pairs in 2 years and my gf's week old switch lite is already drifting. For how much these cost this is ******* ridiculous.

  • TheKirodev Devan (@TheKirodev) reported

    @PCStudios5 @KoopaTroopa4494 @NintendoAmerica I've already beaten the fan translation, it's filled with errors.

  • Fujin_Yumi Catherine 🦄✨ (@Fujin_Yumi) reported

    even though it seems the glitch is just for invited villagers im paranoid to use my julian amiibo card now...please fix soon nintendo

  • SoSDiablo SoSDiablo (@SoSDiablo) reported

    @xxoalicja @NintendoAmerica It ended up being the switch itself, I had one of the original ones and it was an error or a certain batch of Switch's. I ended up constantly getting it and took it back for a new one from GameStop. Sorry you're experiencing this!!

  • LinkuGay Link (@LinkuGay) reported

    @takorokanylon @MOMOSTRAS contact Nintendo FIRST if PayPal issues a refund without Nintendo knowing they will ban your account for fraudulent chargeback

  • DoesPixel misterhunderandone (@DoesPixel) reported

    We're having a movement to let @NintendoAmerica know of a spelling error of #kindess in #ACNH and honestly mood

  • Fujin_Yumi Catherine 🦄✨ (@Fujin_Yumi) reported

    Tldr: Its still unsafe to trade villagers online at the minute (forced out by amiibo or not) Avoid going to other people's islands when you have empty plots Report the "I've moved out" glitch to Nintendo to get it patched with the document posted above

  • punkittboy Punkitt!!🧣 (@punkittboy) reported

    @klayfoam big fan of the fact that a lot of the lag in Mario 64 is a result of Nintendo goofing one line of code

  • heykitarei heykitarei (@heykitarei) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @AndrewKowalec My consumer warranty is well past, I've had the joycons for coming up on two years. Still disappointing, I've had my PS4 controller for 5 years and those analogue sticks are still 100%. Nintendo's product is extremely poor because this issue is prevalent.

  • JustLaurenxox Just Lauren 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 (@JustLaurenxox) reported

    My order has been placed, so all being well I have (finally) managed to get hold of a Nintendo Switch 🥳 Dont let me down Amazon - i dont want an email in an hour or so saying there is a problem with my order 🤬🤬

  • TariqYasiin Tariq Yasiin (@TariqYasiin) reported

    @Nintendo please fix the downloading resume issue. Downloading titles should resume automatically when reconnected after connection loss.

  • tragickly lyris 🥞 (@tragickly) reported

    @turtlepleasures sent! I have to reopen my gates I think sending it caused a communication error bc nintendo bad at online

  • NONBIRl 𝗺𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗼 crossing! (@NONBIRl) reported

  • Eloyota2 Eloyota (@Eloyota2) reported

    @FortniteStatus Fix the physics on Nintendo Switch.

  • lokicrosser 𝐋𝐮𝐜𝐲 🍃🎮🌴🌙 (@lokicrosser) reported

    the moving glitches are worrying me at the moment. my advice is don’t adopt villagers in boxes AT ALL, not even when their moving out naturally. people have been losing their save data and having so many issues so don’t bother taking the risk until word from Nintendo

  • km_brook The Art Major (@km_brook) reported

    The Smash team did a wonderful job creating this game but they fumbled the Smash Online system badly. The lag and terrible connection as a whole is a Nintendo issue as a whole but I’m absolutely sick of this preferred rules, GSP bull crap. I miss For Glory ugh

  • matchakeokeo matcha (@matchakeokeo) reported

    @NintendoAmerica please fix the amiibo ghost house bug :((

  • PlaceboWitch Bleep Sneep (@PlaceboWitch) reported

    @Touyarokii I shall contact Nintendo immediately clearly they have made a big translation error

  • DarkThrowback DT (commissions open!) (@DarkThrowback) reported

    @__Espeon i can't believe that NINTENDO betrayed US, their most VALUED and IMPORTANT FANS, by leaving such a HORRIBLE glitch in the game like this this is an OUTRAGE against the quality that we expect from them, what LAZY game developers they must be to have committed such an ATROCITY

  • VoltySquirrel Viviville Resident Rep (@VoltySquirrel) reported

    @RandomReduX FWIW Nintendo Life reviewed it and said they experienced no such problems

  • Shady_K Long Tran (@Shady_K) reported

    @zeththedarkmage yeah, it's a known issue :( we're working with nintendo to resolve it asap. the only "workaround" i know of is to play on a nintendo account without any friends D:
