Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

    @King5corpion I know that Nintendo does not put its music on digital platforms but this is the sole responsibility of The Pokemon Company and if it were Nintendo's responsibility this service would never have existed

  • necromaster68 necromaster68 (@necromaster68) reported

    @StylesX2_ Seriously??? Bad move @NintendoAmerica why you striking people AGAIN?!?!? This isn't a good look for you and another problem no preservation of games they may/not release in future.

  • Ultimalocked Ultima* (@Ultimalocked) reported

    @radarssbm I just want to know what Nintendo's involvement in this circuit is doing beyond making Panda pay a license fee and enforcing Unfrozen Stadium and potentially no UCF. Because if the answer to that is "nothing even remotely valuable", then I think that's a big ******* problem.

  • hin0t0ra T0ri 🌻 (@hin0t0ra) reported

    @KeyToAeris @Yorbaz1 Part of the problem is probably that it‘s a Nintendo franchise and some Nintendo Fans can’t take hot character designs

  • StutheAnnouncer Stu the Announcer 🤘🏽 (@StutheAnnouncer) reported

    @DrAlanB @michaelmorr_s @PracticalTAS Surely you can see the root of our skepticism, though. You are not our problem; youse bend over backwards to do right by the community. That Nintendo feels they can put their name on something while also not contributing to its incentives, after their history, feels gross.

  • CensoredSays Censored @ Combo Breaker (@CensoredSays) reported

    @Ayygent92 @campagne_papi I’m surprised it isn’t there. It woulda made 9 stages 3 bans. Also no issues because they would all be Nintendo Stages.

  • tfwamirite tifu. (@tfwamirite) reported

    @xaoccore it's a good distro service, let's u set release dates, a bunch of ****. all for less money than Nintendo switch online for a year

  • lacktoas qun (@lacktoas) reported

    @LavenderWasRage The controller got lag but but Nintendo fixes it for free

  • Evil_Orso Orso (@Evil_Orso) reported

    @0xMazz @username53895 @PandaCup They're not working with Nintendo, Nintendo's literally doing nothing except saying they won't interfere.

  • HeulendeSchneke HowlingSnail (@HeulendeSchneke) reported

    @tipsyCatnip @MatttGFX A former PlayStation mascot now owner by Xbox? Yeah, a real mystery why Crash isn't in a Nintendo 1st party game.

  • Neoxon619 Nabil #BlackLivesMatter #StopAsianHate (@Neoxon619) reported

    @_Greenix I’m guessing Nintendo doesn’t want to sponsor competitive tournaments anymore, which could’ve been the issue regarding Smash returning to EVO (where some of the other sponsors may have required it).

  • oscilao oscilao 🔜 CEO 2022 (@oscilao) reported

    @Az_Lu_Fa i assume that they left is vague because of nintendo, but they gave the option to the TO’s so that panda can’t get in trouble for “promoting a mod”

  • yat_zip Yat (@yat_zip) reported

    @LumaGetLucky Ultimately it’s not a problem that is our fault it’s Nintendo for not having a good online platform. I also don’t like how you could in theory get mid set coaching for online brackets and such. But those are less trackable or non issues anyway

  • Perfidy_X Perfidy (@Perfidy_X) reported

    @Kmega4 Kmega come on man lol what resolution most Nintendo Switch games offer in dock/handheld mode tell me? See this is what I dont like gamers quick to judge PlayStation and Xbox for things that's not even an issue, 720p isn't a bad resolution for PS2 games, u disappointing me bro!

  • FocusFireNo10 FocusFire waiting for animation respect (@FocusFireNo10) reported

    @SuperMarioT_YT So am I. Now we need to figure out who this "Nintendo" on YT is, since TeamYT won't tell the truth and fix their broken website.

  • afjart Afjart (@afjart) reported

    @THEREALRTU @NintendoAmerica My understanding, it’s not even Nintendo right? A fake account using their name? It’s a YouTube problem for sure

  • MushySquishyMia melly (@MushySquishyMia) reported

    And they never worked, I messaged Nintendo and called and I was told my system was the problem. ( even though my wii u would perfectly play wii games no problem and other wii u games until they broke. ) one amazing game I loved was animal crossing amibo festival...

  • NoDQ_Virtue ViRTUE (@NoDQ_Virtue) reported

    Please fix the underwater soft lock glitch in Kirby 64 on Nintendo Switch Online! @NintendoAmerica @Nintendo

  • Dilla64J JDilla64 (@Dilla64J) reported

    @IntroSpecktive Why wouldn't it be Nintendo? Who have been notoriously anti consumer and already have a track record of trying to not only take down YT videos of mods/music, but also went out of thier way to cancel Smash events/sponsors. This has been on ongoing problem. **** @NintendoAmerica

  • ShadowFury1230 Shadowfury (@ShadowFury1230) reported

    I found out I have a problem......... The problem is I have an addiction... An addiction to overwatch you say.. nope.. but an addiction to..... PLAYING THE NINTENDO SWITCH!! to bad I do not have one at home.

  • ChaserWestbrook ChaserMikeWestbrook | #StopWoolooHate (@ChaserWestbrook) reported

    @Loudlobster578 While Nintendo issues cease & desist letters and lawsuit with any modifications to their games and hardware

  • karumaa_meii Me (@karumaa_meii) reported

    @valvesoftware @Nintendo @nvidia TF2 is in an unacceptable state Valve. We need to fix it. Voice chat removal isn't going to help. we need to get rid of bots altogether, not supress them. Join the team, and for once, RED And BLU are Banding together to stop these bots, Mann Vs Machine, if you will. #savetf2

  • n3ptune_cpu n3ptune (@n3ptune_cpu) reported

    @StylesX2_ The Japanese copyright system is honestly weird, as Nintendo is a JP company they can do whatever they'd like. YT should block videos from Japan to fix this issue.

  • hadleyele hadley (@hadleyele) reported

    @NintendoAmerica please, for the love of all that is holy, make challenge bowling a separate queue or SOMETHING. i have had SEVEN in a row and i hate it. but if i leave, i'll get banned. please fix it.

  • infinitelover91 Metaphysical🥀 (@infinitelover91) reported

    @Rustolla76 @JayRembert2 @501Lyfe Pandemic isn't stopping Sony or even Nintendo. This is a Xbox issue but I don't expect for you to be up front about their troubles

  • NXMik3 Mik3 (Mike) (@NXMik3) reported involving numerous parties (YouTube and Nintendo corporate leaders, SVPs, etc.) whereas an issue a user is having with YouTube premium could likely be resolved by a CSR or tech support rep. That's likely why TeamYouTube only responded to the user saying their Premium...

  • Jeagerjack69 Eduardo Astorga (@Jeagerjack69) reported

    @MarcTech1996 @RHazuky A long text but, men. Sony got more money for service game that fiat party AAA like GOW or TLOU2. So doesn’t Mather what u say the important go Sony, mic, Nintendo is the money not your gavorite games. If the AAA from ps were a top sellers as CoD or even elden ring

  • BebopThunder ThunderBebop (@BebopThunder) reported

    @RolandoM1121 @AskPlayStation I’ve always hade issues redeeming things when comes to PlayStation. Never had this issue on Xbox or Nintendo man.

    @AOTN091 @Pokemon @NintendoAmerica The date could be that your 3DS was set to that year for some reason, but 2.0 of HOME it’s just garbage and broken. It’s providing a variety of different error codes and won’t let people transfer pokemon to different games. I want to send stuff to PLA but I can’t without an error
