    My nintendo account is linked with a epic games account for dauntless. I must have tried it already, or at least logged in. Problem.. I don't know how to login to that epic account to change the name. I recognize the name as something I went by previously, but not the login.

    @FortniteStatus Fix Harley Hitter pickaxe sound on Nintendo and Android please

  • JezCorden Jez (@JezCorden) reported

    @arcadio_g_s You can use the GameSir X2 around one side of the screen, and angle the other side up like a Nintendo DS. Then use the lower display for a video or something. Problem with that is you need to use the Bluetooth version probably, and the Duo's Bluetooth is really bad.

    @ZeldaDungeon Skyward Sword. Yeah there might have been some issues with the controls (which I've never experienced) but guess nintendo wouldn't praise the better controls in hd if they really weren't better. So I'm pretty excited that skyward sword will finally get the praise it deserves.

  • breezyskells alan skelly (@breezyskells) reported

    @NintendoUK How about a update on the firmware of the console to sort out the update issues we all having

  • SILENCEuk Adam Gillespie (@SILENCEuk) reported

    @ThisIsMyTHandle @Overthegiantree @ORIGINPC For the average consumer emulation and working around those control issues is a million steps too far. Yes you CAN get wii games 3ds games working on a pc with various work arounds and caveats but for an average Nintendo customer that’s way too much to expect from them.

  • ApotrixG Apotrix Gamez (@ApotrixG) reported

    @ZockerOmi @jessejjarvis @NintendoCanada I had this error when undocked with WiFi, but I use the wii lan adapter for wired Internet when docked and haven't experienced the issue. Not an option for lite users though.

  • daniiidoesArt Daniii 🌸 (@daniiidoesArt) reported

    thinking about it now the only way supanova can end or change is if sponsors and stalls (like nintendo, disney, qbd ect.) get mass contacted by people asking them to comment on the issue and if they support it and it may lead to them not wanting to be part of sn

  • EchoN30NL1GHT System Processing… (@EchoN30NL1GHT) reported

    Beat Hyrule warriors: Age of calamity, credits roll, final cutscene plays, only to have the game crash and reset me to the point as if I never started the final level in the first place. @NintendoAmerica anything I can do about this??

  • JunkerUsa JunkerTownUSA (@JunkerUsa) reported

    @TheMistressJ Im gonna say Zelda 2. Simons Quest had some problems (and that one stupid puzzle you LITERALLY needed to read nintendo power to solve), but it also added some really cool concepts to the mix.

  • nerr_ebooks Nerr eBooks (@nerr_ebooks) reported

    Thats a good idea. But I can't use Nintendo's characters due to copyright issues. (I probably can't use mushrooms either, but I'm not sur

  • Shad_JV ShadJV (@Shad_JV) reported

    @MegaFerret777 Nintendo said they’re getting a fix out next week. It’s definitely frustrating, I’ve gotten a lot of error messages myself from it!

  • MegaFerret777 MCN Mike (@MegaFerret777) reported

    @Shad_JV Yeah, that could be it. Really hoping Nintendo gets on that, seems like it’s causing tons of problems!

  • emerald_aly EmeraldAly🌈 🌹🌻 (@emerald_aly) reported

    @RyanWGleason I remember the error message said something about "Club Nintendo" too. Why are there so many things? 😒

  • RyanWGleason Ryan Gleason (@RyanWGleason) reported

    @emerald_aly You can link your Nintendo Network ID to your Nintendo Account but I still have trouble figuring out how the hell to log into my Nintendo whatever account on the website.

  • JayFS07 Jonah (@JayFS07) reported

    @time_pizzer Agree, take a champion like Crash Bandicoot. Playstation’s counter to Nintendo. Lost their way, and countered (years later) by remastering the original games, and reinventing the formula. Sonic tried to change much, and I think now they are coming back.

  • lorkynn Lorkynn (@lorkynn) reported

    @AutoGiraffe **** I feel like we still need to do this. Nintendo has a friendcode problem lol

  • AgentTheVandal Vandal 💫 (@AgentTheVandal) reported

    @_Pikuseru nintendo has more problems such as rom websites

  • realNReviewer The Nintendo Reviewer (@realNReviewer) reported

    @viddygames4fun Isn’t Earthbound a Nintendo property? Why is Sony Music allowed to issue copyright claims on it?

  • rabbit_ebooks bunposting (@rabbit_ebooks) reported

    Kirby Air Ride for the Nintendo GameCube contains several image files of rabbits within its data. When questioned why that is, lead designer Masahiro Sakurai replied, "When we tried to remove them, those builds of the game would immediately crash on launch. We have no idea why."

  • Cryofauna The Werner Herzog of Furry ******** Games (Fauna!) (@Cryofauna) reported

    @rinshankouhai yeah, there's a lot to work from, most of that game's issues really seem to kiiinda be related to production issues, and nintendo's generally a lot better there, so

  • The_auramaster Auramaster 🏳️‍🌈 (@The_auramaster) reported

    @Michael98749289 @time_pizzer Yeah, let's give all of SEGA to the people who sell broken consoles, unfinished games, deny actual problems, make games limited time, take down fan projects, and go for as many cash grabs as possible, that's TOTALLY a smart idea. Nintendo is worse than EA, at least SEGA is nice.

  • CuppaTeaRex Rex (@CuppaTeaRex) reported

    @Lord_Drieg That's not been the case for a very long time. Steam natively support them, no problem. Even lets you use the "Nintendo Button Layout" option.

  • jacobkyle333 Jacobkyle333 (@jacobkyle333) reported

    @TheHBJK @c4nv45 @Touchdownfan_ See but the thing is base ps4 and nintendo switch both have the same graphical capability and it doesn't run better if they run at almost the same level tbh. Ps4 has had glitches in it with lagging where switch doesn't really since there isn't as much to process at a time.

  • jacobkyle333 Jacobkyle333 (@jacobkyle333) reported

    @TheHBJK @c4nv45 @Touchdownfan_ Sure they can look better on ps4 PRO but original ps4 owners cannot output 2160p.. also I've heard people experiencing lag in their games on ps4 whereas Nintendo switch I have not. But to be fair that's not a fair comparison either? Since you're comparing 3 generations of ps4

    @NintendoAmerica HELLO!!!! Anyone at Nintendo? Can you guys fix the broken online multiplayer system in Mario Maker 2???? There are so many dumb levels that keep coming up, yet my MP-specific level hasn't been played even once since it was uploaded a YEAR ago!!!!!😡
