Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • Reecee_yt New Reecee Snap (@Reecee_yt) reported

    @DemeechYT @loogi_07 The Wii was definitely one of Nintendo’s best consoles but it did have a shovelware problem, though it’s actually a pretty similar shovelware problem to what the Switch has now.

  • ErikH745 Erik Herrera (@ErikH745) reported

    @NorphK @Marukin333 @NintendoAmerica The issue is that it is still technically 50$ no matter the country because if you convert 65$ Canadian into USD it’s still just 50$. So yeah that’s right, it’s also intentionally misleading. Spider-Man Miles Morales is also technically 65$, but we don’t say that.

  • ThomasBancroft3 Powerstrike368 (@ThomasBancroft3) reported

    @NintendoUK - i was trying to buy zelda amiibo like the OoT link but they’re all gone from the store now - can we no longer buy them or is this just a website issue?

  • OrangeAndInsane Nabil Who Draws Stuff (@OrangeAndInsane) reported

    @ingle_neil By sending it away and not having it for weeks, all while Nintendo denies that it is a common issue? Doesn't sound like a great system to me.

  • HeroicGangster JustHeroicFandomCrazy (@HeroicGangster) reported

    @SomeKirbyFan The offerings that Nintendo does when they are humbled during the 3DS/Wii U era is straight up king/queen treatment like compared to how they treat consumers now. Other than giving free joy con repairs (becuz they take molasses amount of time to fix their own controllers somehow)

  • SauceTl The Legend Sauce ♡♪!? (@SauceTl) reported

    @dawkosgames @JonnyBlox @SteelWoolStudio It’s a big problem I see in the Nintendo community. They have expectations for a game that isn’t even confirmed to exist and then get upset that they didn’t show it. It is a bad precedent.

  • ingle_neil Neil Ingle-Lai 🦀 (@ingle_neil) reported

    @OrangeAndInsane yeah but I mean, I've been sending my joy con to repairs regularly for free so... I think that might just be nintendo's answer "we're happy to fix this"

  • SherlokianWho SherlokianWho? (@SherlokianWho) reported

    @Cedar51015653 @AstralHelios_ @NintendoAmerica Yeah I don’t have an issue with it being on the switch but $30 is absolutely insane.

  • SirEvilestDeath EvilestDeath (@SirEvilestDeath) reported

    @reggie_800 Nintendo has been ignoring this common issue for over 4 years at this point...this isn’t going to go anywhere.

  • Zcrisis2 Z𝕔𝕣𝕚𝕤𝕚𝕤2 (@Zcrisis2) reported

    Anyone else having issue with the switch and trying to purchase games, tried multiple cards now and get the same error: 9001-2470 Never had issues before today. #Nintendo #nintendoswitch #estore @NintendoUK

  • kugyu_louise ( ‘ᾥ’)🎸🔰狩人ルイズ (@kugyu_louise) reported

    @BouncerCat I tried PSO2 on Nintendo Switch, It seems to be useless due to communication speed problems😭

  • Fabiel016 Fabiel Casas (@Fabiel016) reported

    @EAHelp Yes still, I have issues with the apex legends code in the nintendo eshop

  • panda_gem Lucy the Panda (@panda_gem) reported

    @reggie_800 @didyouknowgamin I feel lucky not having this with any of our 4 controllers, since so many seem to suffer from it. Nintendo shouldnt be so idle with such a big problem

  • thedirecty Directy (@thedirecty) reported

    @mjo0610 @NintendoAmerica No problem

  • kba41510 K.B.A. (@kba41510) reported

    @_ConorMcDonald_ Nintendo does free repairs for drift issues. Send those suckers in! I’m up to 6 different sets of joycons sent and repaired.

  • SonicMemer1103 SuperSonicGamer03 (@SonicMemer1103) reported

    @eriktuf The problem isn't Nintendo giving people more games, The problem is they're charging $30 for a free mobile game. If it was free, nobody would complain.

  • Kirby0Louise Kirby0Louise (@Kirby0Louise) reported

    @abbbgml Hmmm ok, that's a little more understandable if true, after all Nintendo does the same (fund development in exchange for timed exclusivity) and I don't take issue with it

  • TheMaractusMan Blubbleroad (@TheMaractusMan) reported

    @ToadallyBosco @NintendoAmerica I really don’t get what your problem is, but whatever man. Bye

  • typloosion Bob Sagets Son (@typloosion) reported

    @maybedontdotha1 @ChristmasRiver But why do we need it? Representation is important but honestly pokemon shouldn't have this problem because nintendo actually has been good about representation.

  • Dimasalanggggg lol (@Dimasalanggggg) reported

    @legorgeousgoon @brainwashedjoe @hasanthehun That's the thing that has always baffled me, even used BOTW in my country sells for around $40 (original price is about $55). The problem is people buy used nintendo games at high prices. If no one bought it at $50 used, no one would sell it at $50 used.

  • stevenVictorio1 FORTNiTE FAN (@stevenVictorio1) reported

    Bro @HYPEX are Nintendo servers down

  • Osvaldo64 Osvaldo Chandia (@Osvaldo64) reported

    @HMKilla The main problem is the difficulty. The last boss must be the hardest boss of the game (my opinion) but the companies, not only Nintendo, thinks that the final boss is only an excuse to give an end to the game :-/

  • SpookedTroll MajinTroll (@SpookedTroll) reported

    Thank you so much Nintendo I was trying to have fun with my friend @ZombiEGotLost and then boom, lag and on top of that my joycons just refused to let me do what I wanted to do

  • MercurysEdge Mercury (@MercurysEdge) reported

    I'm not expecting a response but i thought i'd ask anyways, @OfficialPixARK will there ever be a patch to fix the Nintendo switch port? You guy's have a fantastic game here on a great platform, but the Crashes hurt the game so much! Thank you for your time!

  • the_nerd_skull The Nerdskull (@the_nerd_skull) reported

    The only issue I have with StarTropics in retrospect is that it suffers a bit from "Nintendo Hard" syndrome but it's not all that bad for the most part.

  • medlli save me from FFXIV crafting hell. (@medlli) reported

    wish Nintendo would make their music more accessible like putting them on a more universal streaming service I don't own an iPhone anymore so the fact that some games have purchasable soundtracks in the Apple Store is meaningless to me

  • KaitosNightmare Ryan Jones (@KaitosNightmare) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Can you add gameboy and gameboy advance pokemon games to the store or the online service please, I want them on my switch.

  • NewFranKK FranK (@NewFranKK) reported

    @LiquidGoth It’s mostly a joke on my part I wouldn’t care if he’s in the game or not more so people view him as a gaming icon over other characters it’s more the issue with nintendo fans living in a bubble because I used to be like that

  • GJDegeorge Gabby DeGeorge (@GJDegeorge) reported

    @MaxiCastellini @SciresM @Kaphotics Then it’s the exact same problem you’d have in older games. If you don’t want to pay for Nintendo online which is 5 bucks and most people have for other games, you can do a local trade like you had to do in ye olden days.

  • TomBLock91 Tom (@TomBLock91) reported

    @AndreaPichinini The problem is Microsoft need to do that Sony and Nintendo don't
