    @_Obsessor Getting completely stun locked is no fun no matter if your casual or competitive, but yeah the game is too new perhaps the method of eascape are just undiscovered and Nintendo seems like they are gonna fix any REAL issues regardless so people do need to just relax.

    The only fan game Nintendo can't issue a cease and desist to is a remake of any of the CD-I games cuz that means that Nintendo will have to acknowledge their existence

    @NintendoAmerica It has and is taking every bit of my restraint Not to throw my (now INITIALIZED & yet STILL not working) Switch through the wall & Traveling to 4600 150th NE Redmond, WA 98052 And getting hauled off by security for an act of Violence "Support" NEEDS improvement

    @gideonburkland @LuisRio88195715 Whil Senran Kagura on the other hand is harmed due the removal of intimacy mode because the fan service aspect is one of the reasons PEOPLE BUY THE GAME. Remove it and you remove the reason amny had to buy the game, especially when Nintendo

    It can’t be this hard to have an online service, that I’m paying for, to be up to code when playing with someone online in #SmashBrosUltimate. Fix your crap @NintendoAmerica. Use a server.

    Tonight I spent 15 minutes trying to get Super Smash Bros to refinished that I wanted to play it with one Switch controller broken in half. I couldn’t manage that. This is why I ******* hate video games. @NintendoAmerica

    Anybody in Minneapolis want to help me out and test my Nintendo games. If you have Super Nintendo I need help in seeing if my games suck or it’s my system that’s not working fully. Beginning part of my sports games work up until play time. Not so good.

    @jcallmeinsane Let's see here... *Terminating channels for no reason *Copyright bullshit *Showing favoritism towards certain people *Subscribers not getting videos and being unsubbed... But yeah sure, playbacks on Nintendo Switch sure is a big ol problem of YouTube, gotta be the biggest one...

    (TBC) Because I mean they JUST got a Comic based "Netflix like" subscription service on it... so I'm pretty sure it's more Netflix than Nintendo. If not, I mean I'll just watch it (if I had it :'( ) on my 50 bajillion other devices it's playable on :P (TBC)

    @AbyssSSB @Meeper12346 @paulthecesar @hero_ssbu @FalcoMain See now saying "the public asked them not to" is a bit misleading, the people complaining about it were the minority and Nintendo just did it to avoid it growing into a bigger issue (That's why they half ass'd the edit so much).

    @LoggoFrog @KingRui_yo If Crash were to make it tho I'd hope Nintendo would go with their own interpretation of the Charles Zembillas design rather than the watered down N. Sane Trilogy design

    @Stealth40k Because sheeple like you gladly pay $20 to use your own internet connection. If Nintendo had actual dedicated servers then no one would have a problem paying $20 a year. But since that isn't the case, people are getting mad over paying $20 just to use their own internet.

    ... (@SkyRoss88) reported

    @NintendoAmerica the only issue i came across with Super Smash Bros Ultimate is that when you choose which character you want Peach and Snake are off announcer wise like it sounds like Pea not Peach and when he says Snake it sounded like he was hiccuping when saying Snake.

    I would pay Nintendo $40/year or $5/month or more on a single subscription for a better Online Service, NES - Wii games in the Online catalog, native voice chat, and the full release of any game only for a week after their release as a trial period.

    Just learned Nintendo finessed us with the N64 Expansion Pak. Donkey Kong 64 only needed it because Rare couldn't come up with a cheap and effective solution for a game breaking memorly leak glitch. Not because of graphics or size.

    @that_iso_kid @IGN It’s not about a “morality” issue about letting exclusives be exclusives. Thanks to Nintendo Ultimate A 3 is happening and of course they want to sell their product (Switch). Same with Spiderman, they invest money to get more money.

    ******* Smash Ultimate online. It's ******* 2018, I have 200gb speed internet. And I can't play a match online without it looking like I'm flipping through a picture book... Slowly... Fix your shit Nintendo... #SmashBrosUltimate #NintendoSwitch

    @IGN I will say it here as I screamed it in the Nintendo store. Crash is superior to Mario in general.

  • SabreMau
    Tresjin Charvanek (@SabreMau) reported

    @NoydTheKnight @EVO I doubt rule set is a major issue as they're likely going to run it anyway as a side event. Reason seems more to be with Nintendo and licensors not agreeing to contractual terms necessary to put it on with official support. Smash and ARMS didn't have a prize pot last time either.

  • MeesterTweester
    Meester Tweester (@MeesterTweester) reported

    @zerowondering Part of the problem is that Nintendo doesn’t make Ultimate, it’s Bamco and Sora Ltd.

    @NintendoAmerica @MatthewSantoro Can someone help me with a problem I have on my game. Since before the new update I’ve been trying to get all the characters but they suddenly stopped appearing. I don’t know why but I’ve tried everything including playing classic mode, world of light, and doing multiple battles.

    @NintendoAmerica if possible for next update, please fix the host issue in battle arena, where if the host leaves then the entire room is down. Make it so that if a host leaves, give the priority to another person in the room, in order to keep things moving smoothly.
