Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • AllyRaeven 🎄🍬AllyRaeven🍬🎄 (@AllyRaeven) reported

    @Jesterthepeople @NintendoAmerica Yeah! At first it was causing my tournament matches to crash, then it was happening every time I did a surprise trade. Now it just happens no matter what.

  • AllyRaeven 🎄🍬AllyRaeven🍬🎄 (@AllyRaeven) reported

    @DannyOHKOs @NintendoAmerica A decent number of people in their support message boards had the error...probably will have to email them directly 😭

  • AllyRaeven 🎄🍬AllyRaeven🍬🎄 (@AllyRaeven) reported

    @DannyOHKOs @NintendoAmerica Nope, been just trying to work on my dex and it keeps popping up with the error message about every 30 seconds to 3 minutes. I pretty much can't do ANYTHING online and I know it's not our internet because Rex is fine.

  • BanchoGato Felix Davis (@BanchoGato) reported

    @WarOnFanservice @XanderStabbity Nintendo still has their problems

  • IDontLive5 I_Dont_Live_ (@IDontLive5) reported

    @ToadRoasted @kindalikeliquid @hammer_kirby @FockheadTV @SavedYouAClickV The issue is that it would be dumb for Nintendo to cage themselves of possible fighters, as they didn’t even know all of the DLC fighters when the spirits were being made. Also, Sakurai has been known to repeatedly break fans’ “rules”

  • GrumpyLittle1 Grumpy Little 1 (@GrumpyLittle1) reported

    Buyers #beaware @AmazonUK @JeffBezos sending obvious returns unsealed previously opened Nintendo Switch Consoles when purchasing new items, tsk tsk! Chat customer service appalling! Telephone help service better. I personally will never again purchase electrical goods from amazon

  • Payou__ Patou 🌻✨ (@Payou__) reported

    it almost did tbh, at one point my 3ds where almost broken, i played with SELLOTAPE until Nintendo repaired it, thx friend I was so happy back then

  • Morfid_plays morfid_plays (@Morfid_plays) reported

    @Andrew__Sell @Colteastwood I think the real issue here is you are all following the “smart business” guide being submitted by the third place platform, who just about spluttered along this entire generation. I think Nintendo and Sony have smart business sorted

  • BanalDoost DikusMikus (@BanalDoost) reported

    @NintendoEurope Nintendo, please fix your website.

  • SchillerSFV Schiller (@SchillerSFV) reported

    @itsHvKz No no no. The joycons had their own problem were after a while they would permanently drift. At the same time people were also reporting the issues of their switches not turning on. To solve the controller drift problem Nintendo said you can send in the joycons for free.

  • paulsturch Paul (@paulsturch) reported

    @NintendoUK seems that my switch has inherited the joycon drifting issue. How can I go about speaking to someone about this

  • testeag7 testeag (@testeag7) reported

    @ActualAero i dont bELIEVE THIS ITS FAKE NINTENDO SAYD THAT CRASH BANDICOOT THE NEW CRASH GAME WILL GETTING IN NINTENDO SWITCH AND PS4 AND XBOX MABY PC AND NINTENDO SAYD THE ANNOUCMENT THAT MEANS CRASH BANDICOOT IS COMING FOR SMASH

  • NitroFlame250 NitroFlame250#GrookeyGang (@NitroFlame250) reported

    I don't know why. But out of all of my Nintendo controllers, my Switch Pro-Controller is the only controller that does "NOT" give me any problems with the drifting. #NintendoSwitch, #Nintendo

  • templeofhoops Victor Temple 💯🏀⛹🏾 (@templeofhoops) reported

    Ordered a Nintendo Switch ($299) for Black Friday from @GameStop but received a Nintendo Switch Lite. Actually want the Switch Lite now but this process of being credited the $100 difference has become a nightmare. Customer service is extremely experienced.

  • M3ch4Dragon MechanicalDragon 🇨🇦 (@M3ch4Dragon) reported

    @ecmyers Nintendo should fix that for you. I went the route of ordering replacement sticks and have spares kicking around in case it happens again.

  • fwmj Cozy Solid Snake ☭ (@fwmj) reported from Seattle, Washington

    Which streaming service got Captain Nintendo

  • EnziSSB Enzi (@EnziSSB) reported

    @WMMMNNN as would i, though do remember the bad online is generally reserved to ssbu, so it's much more viable that it gets a rework than it would be if the issue was something to do with nintendo's online service as a whole. it's entirely possibly and very probable that the smash dev

  • MissVicGutz Vic (@MissVicGutz) reported

    I am struggling to be an adult cuz I spent my spending money on a Nintendo switch yesterday but now I SHOULD return the switch so I can fixed my broken phone and I have 0 desire to return said switch

  • Super8BitBen Super 8-Bit Ben (@Super8BitBen) reported

    The biggest problem is Nintendo and Nvidia are being awarded for a flawed system that has an amazing concept. We live in a industry that promotes pro models so it can be said that people can afford to pay roughly £390 for a Switch with good battery,more compact size @KevinKenson

  • Milkmyshak3 Milkmyshak3 (@Milkmyshak3) reported

    @JLucario2 @Pokemon @NintendoAmerica @GAMEFREAK_info Ok, Gamefreak lied and cut the national dex. It's going through problems yes, but if you're just gonna cancel your membership and not play the switch because of sword and shield and what gamefreak did I think that's kinda ridiculous on your end.

  • Slowjoe_da_mofo Joseph Brown (@Slowjoe_da_mofo) reported

    I really hate losing to people playing with items on elite smash! Is it really that ******* hard to fix this so I don’t have to worry about playing these weak ass casuals on elite smash Nintendo!

  • SashYako Doink (@SashYako) reported

  • SchillerSFV Schiller (@SchillerSFV) reported

    @itsHvKz I know Nintendo put out a report about this as well as Joy Cons with the permanent tilt. I'm pretty sure if you call them you can send it in for them to fix it for free but I would double check

  • CD20Superness CD20Superness (@CD20Superness) reported

    @VedsaGolfer @careful_wario It's because you some fo you guys seemed to buy a Nintendo Switch without a problem and I have a budget problem and I can't afford it immediately!

  • SpaceDoomed SpaceDoomed (@SpaceDoomed) reported

  • lexxaah_ 𝕥𝕒𝕟. (@lexxaah_) reported

    @durrtydisco_ it’s a Nintendo issue because one time my battery died that I had it charging for a whole day and it didn’t charge and I thought it broke but apparently they just have shitty battery life and it drains it completely

  • Tsubasa_Blake @PKM Sword Rain Stan &RWBYV7 spoilers (@Tsubasa_Blake) reported

    @Iyahvillanueva3 People are annoyed at Nintendo for releasing a port of western version that which very censored from the Japanese version. Some people are going out of their way to say to the people that are excited for the game are supporting censorship and they are part of the problem.

  • TayRaeDee 𓃖𓃟𓃦𓃰 (@TayRaeDee) reported

    @maineydelaneexD That sounds like a internal issue! I would contact nintendo and let them know. Sometimes when its internal they'll fix it free

  • alexspills Alex (@alexspills) reported

  • JonJTorres2000 Jonathan Torres (@JonJTorres2000) reported

    @mrleedles My dream picks are Crash Bandicoot and Spyro. It would be disrespectful not to have one of the most influential non-Nintendo rivalries of the 90s be left unpresented in true Smash fashion. Oh, and CommanderVideo from BIT.TRIP, because indie representation.

  • messlopez Messiah Hernandez (@messlopez) reported

    Please fix this annoying Joy-Con issue!!!!! @NintendoAmerica

  • LeExiledOne Ali Quinn (@LeExiledOne) reported

    @RealmRoyale Fix the constant crashing on Nintendo switch version....it's been like that for a few months now

  • OhSoCliche Cooper Flores (@OhSoCliche) reported

    @JoshZampich @ReaganABeard There's still the issue of corrupted ROM's and files that could put your phone and/or computer down really easy. I would totally back a safe and secure program that Nintendo could very easily put out.

    So weird that my morning-based nausea/dizziness/digestion problems I’ve faced my whole life didn’t get cured in my childhood by berating me & taking away TV & Nintendo.

  • angryforks Festive Forks (@angryforks) reported

    @biishoujo_ I think i had this same problem before, you probably forgot to press continue in the shop screen, Nintendo will return the money later because it doesn't go through the system

  • PATLANTA404 Peter "Pongo" Rotella (@PATLANTA404) reported

    @Muskelsmurf For me it would be great. If I had hopes of #BanjoKazooie coming to #SmashBrosUltimate and it happened then there's no reason why @NintendoAmerica wouldn't put their own #DonkeyKongCountry games onto their #NintendoSwitchOnline service.

  • ecmyers E.C. Myers ☕ (@ecmyers) reported

    @Nefarious_Wes @NintendoAmerica I've heard that they will. I'm gonna test it out a little more to confirm it's a problem and then we'll see.
