Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • LokiNoke Loki Noke (@LokiNoke) reported

    @FridayGus @shinobi602 My issue is that imo nintendo always puts the jump, and cancel button in the wrong spot.

  • RedCapJohn mr. Baltazar (@RedCapJohn) reported

    @MiniNuckels @riennezelda @PracticalTAS Nintendo of europe is way less invasive so we could probably do it but the us might have issues. I think theyre past the point of no return tho.

  • AmberIsAQT Amber 💕🧡 (@AmberIsAQT) reported

    @Cassapphic @JonComms yeah the problem is they only removed the games because there was demand for them they know they'll be able to make more money doing the nintendo thing of taking away all their old games and selling them back later or selling us remakes like crash n.sane and spyro remakes

  • OyakodoTamago Cñor JUVY C.E.O of IKKAN and maybe DISSPAIR (@OyakodoTamago) reported

    😳 nintendo my sweetheart, did you disconected me? I pay 20 euros every month for this service?

  • The_Wolf141 TheWolf141 (@The_Wolf141) reported

    @PSN_ElectricDC I see. Well I just found another issue I’m concerned about with Nintendo. That would the Drifting issues for the joy con controllers I’m thinking I’m going to have to get the protection plan for the Switch because of those issues

  • TheWayneGibbons Dr Wayne Gibbons (@TheWayneGibbons) reported

    Anyone else experiencing a shockingly poor level of service from @NintendoUK ??

  • star_seeking StarSeek (@star_seeking) reported

    I thought I'd raise this issue since the question was raised during a stream I was watching. Who else is experiencing their Pokéball plus or a similar device repeatedly disconnecting? Also if anyone can respond on which company would it be to address this, Niantic or Nintendo?

  • Ryan_of_Oldrim Ryan of Tamriel (@Ryan_of_Oldrim) reported

    @TruGifer @_JaY_R0ck_ False bro I live in North Africa and stuff so much into gaming grew up with PlayStation/Nintendo PS1/2/3.. N64 PSP the only place for us to buy games was to pirate. Now games are almost as expensive as salaries for us a console is not a problem. Price games are we just wanna play

  • Charlottesale83 Charlotte (@Charlottesale83) reported

    @MartinSLewis @verynetwork @SmythsToysUK are also like this when it comes to the Nintendo Switch. Point blank refused to help, had to return to manufacturer. Was a Christmas present. Countless people have the same problem

  • sleepysonicfan Isaiahwalk16 (Iris is queen) (@sleepysonicfan) reported

    That deserve to be in the roster. Not other Nintendo ips. Man I already have a problem with all stars racing transformed because the Sonic characters play second fiddle to the sega cast. And people have the nerve to call it a Sonic racing game.

  • callouss callouss (@callouss) reported

    fortnite servers down new update IO gaurds removed from arena new boss character+ mythic item jungle hunters quest 1gb for ps4 xbox nintendo ps5 900 mb pc update not yet ready pc 500 mb

  • Scented_Flowers 🍃 Calactic 🍃 (@Scented_Flowers) reported

    @crumstopher How is crash not in already? Hes literally a gaming icon. It's either Nintendo's fault or the company that owns Crash.

  • Omega_1993 Josh Omega (@Omega_1993) reported

    So freaking upset right now. Finally got my switch back from repairs and the same issue started back up. Turns out my Pokémon shield game was damaged and it messed up the card reader. Going to have to call Nintendo to set up repairs again

  • CaptainSlow181 Captain Slow (@CaptainSlow181) reported

    @babyboy214 @SuperRareGames I hope and see no reason why the switch can not beat ds/3ds and stay even longer like you say its a better concept and console in my opinion and it has both 3rd and 1st party games which has always been a problem for nintendo

  • danfornace Dan Fornace (@danfornace) reported

    @sydslilthings Yeah Ranno's custom colors are broken right now. We have a patch in review with Nintendo that should come out soon.

  • paynterboi animal (@paynterboi) reported

    The new crash team racing isn't the old crash team racing. There's only 1 king! and it can only be the original CTR This kart game beats any other now and then. Thats right. I said it. No need to prove me wrong because impossible. @CTRanking @NintendoAmerica @rNintendoSwitch

  • ArtiriaWho Artiria (@ArtiriaWho) reported

    @BurgundyBirb Well reacting on wifi is a lost cause to begin with with like 16(or 19) base frames of input lag in ult PLUS shitty Nintendo wifi

  • rixor14 ~~Rixor~~ (@rixor14) reported

    @mariosonic500 @Akfamilyhome Because at least for Nintendo, they try way too desperately to "Innovate" on what wasn't broken often times.

  • kruegertingz Janey-E Jones (@kruegertingz) reported

    Nintendo is like buy our online service to play tetris 99 and then you play it and every block you place increases your chance of disconnecting for no reason

  • DarthSolus Darth Solus (@DarthSolus) reported

    @LilSwordMaiden I was worried about stuff like that too. Nintendo doesn't do cloud saves unless you pay for their service, which irked me. Microsoft and steam have standardized that feature for years

  • MidoriMushrooms Shrooms (@MidoriMushrooms) reported

    these are streamer problems btw nobody ******* has these problems if they have either the option of streaming from the hardware or the magic wrists to tolerate bad control schemes of which there are many on nintendo consoles also **** paying for a 3ds capture device

  • MidoriMushrooms Shrooms (@MidoriMushrooms) reported

    I ******* hate emulating nintendo consoles. it's always the nintendo consoles. don't have these problems with sony or sega ngl. both platforms do what nintendon't I guess.

  • lokilim lim wai hoong (@lokilim) reported

    @nintendo_cs Hi, I lost my phone and backup code for my Nintendo Switch Account. I cannot login into my Nintendo Account now, what can I do to remove the 2 step verification.

  • CousinDaveLives Cousin Dave (@CousinDaveLives) reported

    @sentientsixp yea paying for PS+ and Game Pass as well as Nintendo's but its like $20 a month. Anytime I see NewEgg or some place sell discount Xbox or PS cards I buy a a few of them. We need a subscription service bundle package - you know like cable TV.

  • adamst09 Terry Adams (@adamst09) reported

    @avondale1718 @josecar20059811 @Noxcrew I'm disappointed and a bit offended that my android phone can handle a map that my Nintendo Switch cannot. Lately, their attention to fixes for the switch version is almost non-existent. Is it covid related? Last patch cause an increase lag on block displacement when mining.

  • E1M1magazine E1M1 Magazine KICKSTARTER LIVE NOW! (@E1M1magazine) reported

    @jarofnoise I'm sure at some point we will cover the pc version, the super Nintendo version we covered in issue 0 isnt something we were crazy about! At 10k it will be content that has not been in the mags before

  • chimbledorf Mr.Calzone (@chimbledorf) reported

    @eraofdecline Always funny to me how first party Nintendo games only go on sale when either there’s a pricing glitch somewhere or they were developed third party (Like Mario x Rabbids)

  • Shiori_Ishimaru Shiori (@Shiori_Ishimaru) reported

    The WonderSwan is actually an interesting system tho. Most handheld competitors to Nintendo had two big issues in technical flaws and battery life. The WonderSwan's biggest mistake was that it simply came out too late and went against the GBA.

  • ArgentRyins Argent Ryins (@ArgentRyins) reported

    @karkalla which game(s) were on this list? and we are talking the "not NA Super Nintendo" issue?

  • panicattheBTS A (@panicattheBTS) reported

    Yo anyone willing to spare their Nintendo code from the Nintendo newsletter - November edition? Been trying to get the Mario pin set but I never got the November issue in my email. Help a girl out 😭
