Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • NintendoShame Nintendo Shame (@NintendoShame) reported

    It's been 564 days since the last game was added to the Nintendo Switch Online service

  • nib95_ NIB (@nib95_) reported

    @PeterOvo5 What part of the tweet is defensive? Lol. It's merely politely adding context. It's not a double standard, there's just systemic release cadence issues at Xbox that don't exist with Nintendo or PlayStation. Hopefully something they remedy going forward.

  • bansama Matt | ... | So tired (@bansama) reported

    The problem is, changes like these could well be the standard in Nintendo of Americas current playbook. A playbook that once ruled all references to wine had to be changed to juice, for example. *sigh*

  • Setphies Lorelei 🏳️‍⚧️ (@Setphies) reported

    @nintendolife We're gonna need to frame Nintendo ATP to get them to fix major issues

  • Rocky2815golden Rocky/Roxy 🏳️‍🌈 🐉 🐲 🌈 (He,Him,They,Them) (@Rocky2815golden) reported

    @MyNintendoNews i don’t believe this it’s sounds like a place holder date or a system error or something. there no way nintendo would release pikmin.4 which has being in development for even longer than zelda at this point during the same month zelda tears of the kingdom releases 🧵

  • Philmaker5 Phil Wyatt (@Philmaker5) reported

    @retro_dodo Surely if it breaks within warranty, then Nintendo will fix it... or are they just not fixing them at all now? Sony sorted my DS4 drifting issue recently, gave me a brand new replacement.

  • SomsADark SomaroButComfier (@SomsADark) reported

    @HuttserGreywolf *tries sticking a Nintendo cartridge into you* Dad it’s not working and it won’t go in me because I’m a Nintendo Top

  • russgreeno Russ Greeno (@russgreeno) reported

    @famicomplicated Repair service labour in the West (US/EU) is very expensive and a bill Nintendo would want to shrink asap. So if a small design change or part swap was possible for production stage in China which is far cheaper labour, they would do it wouldn't they?

  • russgreeno Russ Greeno (@russgreeno) reported

    @famicomplicated I've seen various posts in the past claiming an easy fix for pennies. I think Nintendo would have changed it by now if it would save them service costs which are quite expensive. So that leads me to believe it's not as simple as people suggest.

  • puyogum 💜 Puyogum 💜 (@puyogum) reported

    @nintendolife with this and their pathetic paid online service, I'm definitely not buying the next Nintendo console, they've become very anti-consumer :/

  • Pascalucard Pascalucard (@Pascalucard) reported

    @Reddfawks @ProfessorBopper funny thing is, it's not even that applicable here. Nintendo is very willing to rerelease fe4, its on the NSO service...just japan only because investing into localisations aint sth they will do. Still annoying, especially with all the content they do calling back to that era.

  • jtduckman Jtduckman (@jtduckman) reported

    Well thats a problem The TV doesnt like the super nintendo+OSSC combo probably because its 60.08 hz we will have to use the retrotink which might ruin the results for this test considering the retrotink has one frame of lag

  • Ila60694645 Илья (@Ila60694645) reported

    @ConcernedApe hello, I have a problem on the nintendo switch, when the archaeologist is released, the game stops and does not work

  • RestYourBreasts Margaret H. LastName 🏒 (@RestYourBreasts) reported

    @arkclaimer I'm so, so tired of Charmander. I would have no problem with his line if Nintendo didn't push all the Charizard **** down our throats every goddamn game.

  • eligamerman eli (@eligamerman) reported

    @DurrCharmAIM PLEASE fix this @NintendoAmerica 🙏💀

  • SplatSam_52gal SplatSam (@SplatSam_52gal) reported

    @OctoCaptain8 I play with keyboard and mouse usually. 🙄 I remember Nintendo’s layout better that’s why I have trouble with the Xbox one was what I’m trying to say. Another example, “L1” & “L2” is more intuitive than “LB” and “LT”

  • elstoleno Rachel Bell (@elstoleno) reported

    @leeshelton82 @Harlow_John79 @DLPReport Yeah, it's a bigger project and it's taking twice as long. Universal took 4-5 years to build Nintendo World in Osaka and Hollywood (although parts of that one have already broken). Things take time. You also need to remember French restrictions stopped all construction in 2020

  • AAceflux AceTheAceflux (@AAceflux) reported

    @Jacksepticeye My biggest hot take is that the worst thing to ever happen to gaming is live service Behind that? 1) they aren't cheating as often as you think, you're just worse than you think you are and ping is a pain & 2) Nintendo isn't a bad company, most of the time just IP protective, D@M

  • dinocharges ben @41 DAYS⚡️ (@dinocharges) reported

    this is so insanely broken and its so funny bc u know gf and nintendo do NOT give a **** at all because theyre dead games

  • TheTrollingQ The Freak In The Fedora. (@TheTrollingQ) reported

    @real_hft Tbf i have never been one to **** ride any platform. I think the issue with Nintendo consoles are that you buy them only for 1st party. If 3rd party is more important for you, then its the worst investment without question

  • wordsmith_kari Kari with a K. (@wordsmith_kari) reported

    I paid @NintendoAmerica $100 to fix my Switch exclusively because I didn't want to lose my island, and now I lost the damn thing anyway and I legitimately might never play this stupid thing again. Why did no one tell me I had to enable back up?Or back it up at the repair center?

  • MikearoniGrill 🍻 Drunk Mike 🍻 Burffday Party (@MikearoniGrill) reported

    I've died 10x more in the first 12 hours of MASS EFFECT 3 than Elden Ring. and both games... the deaths were bullshit. And my dad works for Nintendo, and my controller was broken.


    @MattHelgeson Also, I know you are a video game guy. We just had a Nintendo switch repair issue recently. I have advice for folks in that situation if you ever want to know. It's not as simple as you would think.

  • Pingui812 Pingui8 (@Pingui812) reported

    @TheNintendoFeed The issue is that, usually, Nintendo works to make e3 the most hype presentation of the year. It's when we get teasers of big games coming up in a few years. We haven't gotten a summer direct in either year where e3 was cancelled. E3 is always hype

  • MattIsLinton Matt Linton (@MattIsLinton) reported

    Second playthrough of Fire Emblem Engage, @NintendoAmerica when’s that story DLC coming?? I need my fix until Zelda drops.

  • SB2749 eSBe²⁷⁴⁹ (@SB2749) reported

    @Chezi34 also even among nintendo's own properties (or at least 2/3 owned) they have trouble with licensing for these deals seeing as how the pokémon amiibo were treated for these 2 games

  • SylveonAlcremie 🎀Sylveon the TinkaBONKing🔨🔨🔨 Alcremist🍓 (@SylveonAlcremie) reported

    @RoseAreaZero Just wondering do you think Nintendo knew there were going to be drift problems with potentiometer joysticks?

  • EnnittMarkus Markus Ennitt (@EnnittMarkus) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Greetings. I have a problem with my Wii U Gamepad. It charges, but it does not turn on properly. We replaced the motherboard and battery, but to no avail. Do you know what the problem is?

  • Agent1270509269 🌟Agent 12🌟 ( GO TEAM MILK CHOCOLATE 🍫) (@Agent1270509269) reported

    So my Nintendo switch lite's home and power button stopped working, do y'all have any tips to fix it???
