Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • stuartsaysstop stuartsaysDieUgly 💀 (@stuartsaysstop) reported

    @attackofhubris @budlitelimecore Honestly joycons are trash. Probably the worst first party controller ever in terms of build quality. Nintendo will fix for free but that still doesn’t solve the underlying problem. We have a pro controller - which is great! - but some games just work better portable.

  • cimagsD4L Jonathan Cimaglio (@cimagsD4L) reported

    @NianticHelp @PokemonGoApp @NintendoAmerica fix pvp. Maybe I’ll enjoy it better if I can actually play. Don’t give us false promises of oh yea the nest update. Y’all need to shut it down for a week. Fix all the bugs you put in the game on purpose

  • TheIronMadden IronMadden (@TheIronMadden) reported

    @SpearmintVR The only trouble could be that Facebook may send updates/banwaves out that could brick these cracked Oculus headsets. Similar to what Microsoft, Sony and especially Nintendo do for those who crack into hardware. Still great news, but it requires caution if one tries this out.

  • YaBoi_Trigga ShinyHunterTrigga (@YaBoi_Trigga) reported

    @NintendoAmerica fix this

  • MSTDENIS There's Always Next Year. Maybe? 🇨🇦 (@MSTDENIS) reported

    @CrayDC @NintendoAmerica I am sure they can fix it but be prepared to be without it for months. Then it may come back with another problem. I am just getting my son a gaming PC when this is all over.

  • Jostein33 Jostein (@Jostein33) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Now can we get button layout fix as well? I really want the B button to be the B button.

  • HolyProtagonist ジーザス (@HolyProtagonist) reported

    @MLOMustache @AkoraFae @OrdinaryGamers It's a hustle, not a respectable one but it is one . As long as dumb asses keep buying they'll keep selling. Nintendo has the same problem before the pandemic and shoes have been like this forever

  • cmorganbarrett charlie (@cmorganbarrett) reported

    @NintendoUK why is my sons switch all of a sudden having problems with connecting to the tv?? He can be mid game and it disconnects and then it takes ages for it to connect again!!

  • UnknownFixhsy UnknownFixhsy(Bruh Chill) (@UnknownFixhsy) reported

    Make sure if you purchase the new wild cat bundle from any seller that you have your Nintendo account linking stuff and all that sorted before you buy to avoid issues

  • thenewdarling luke (@thenewdarling) reported

    @isaac__miles I think it's just free?? It was for local data on the Switch, not across the Nintendo account Also I just realised it's the Nintendo service that I'm on the family plan - I'm just on regular Home (and on the free account on my second profile)

  • s_gossamer s.gossamer ✧ B L M ✧ A C A B (@s_gossamer) reported

    Full context part 1: I did a commission for someone because my Nintendo Switch Online service was cut this month so I needed to renew it since I know that I probably won’t be getting all of the Halloween DIYs in Animal Crossing and trading will be my best option.

  • darkrai848 Patrick M Fletcher (@darkrai848) reported

    @NFLToday247 @NintendoAmerica The problem was that bevy of that there was no chance of that game ever getting a western release. The game also did not do well in Japan and basically put the final nail in the series coffin. Sadly the series is now considered dead even in Japan.

  • ChuxBuster Chuck (@ChuxBuster) reported

    @zhmure @jasonschreier I get what you’re saying, I do and those issues are way more serious than video games, but like I don’t yell at a financial website for not telling me what the latest Nintendo Direct was about.

  • SparkleFolfEnby _Riley (@SparkleFolfEnby) reported

    So I tried out #Control for the #NintendoSwitch aaaand Im ready. If Nintendo want to push an online streaming service for games that won't typically run on the device, I will pay. Control runs as if its coming straight off the switch itself. @NintendoUK

  • the_coop_couple TheCoOpCouple (@the_coop_couple) reported

    @johniibo Is it nintendo service, or is it a remedy service so they can sell their game on twitch?

  • KitBallard Ӄit ßallarɖ (@KitBallard) reported

    @Demonslayerx8 I mean, it's a bloody SWITCH running this game. The game style is meant for som'in with a bit more *****. They should be able to fix up the frames at some point but honestly, Nintendo really just needs to stop making these under performing consoles to run Super HQ Games on it.

  • tomadorf Thomas Coleing (@tomadorf) reported

    Oh. Just played the demo in handheld. Yeah, it needs work. Very blurry. Not unplayable, but probably the worst Nintendo published game on handheld. Hopefully they’ll fix it for the full release.

  • AntTheCEO Ant (@AntTheCEO) reported

    @GShotta21 @OfficialJettEye Remember I just hit record on the switch. I don't have a capture card. If you look up gameplay honestly not too bad. I'm looking at this like Nintendo had to something. Plus in Japan they playing Resident Evil 7 cloud no problem.

  • AdventureRuss86 Russ (@AdventureRuss86) reported

    @UbitusInc I wanted to provide you some feedback on the game Control you recently brought to Nintendo Switch. I live in the US My WiFi Connection Speed: Download 180 Ping 6 m/s Graphic/Performance Mode = No issues. I think you’ve discovered the future of Switch gaming.

  • Timinole spooky skeletim (@Timinole) reported

    @Wario64 are you seeing that Nintendo is having server issues? I can't log on on the website and the Switch itself is telling me my account has been suspended.

  • LadyLeonaSings Amy Leona Ⓥ (@LadyLeonaSings) reported

    Does anyone know if the Amnesia collection of games has flashing images? Don’t wanna get fobbed off and get a rude email from @NintendoUK again claiming there’s a warning before you buy (there’s not FYI, and Nintendo, sort out your customer service, condescending little shits)

  • Michell93261434 Michelle Rose (@Michell93261434) reported

    @NintendoUK I’m having trouble purchasing something in the eshop today. It says my credit card cant be used in the eshop. I’ve used this card before and have used it elsewhere today. Is there an issue today?

  • raiden71 Luca Franceschi (@raiden71) reported

    @pedumeudeus @DbDMobile Unfortunately Never,I really want Freddy,but I know I can play it only on my PS4 Pro. There copyright issues,this it’s why it’s not on Nintendo Switch version..The Director of Nighmare has pass away,and his family don’t want negotiating..

  • playismEN PLAYISM (@playismEN) reported

    Regarding the console version of Orangeblood, we have released a patch today for PS4 and Nintendo Switch to address the crashing issue. However, the issue is not yet completely fixed, so we will continue making adjustments and fixes.

  • AivanSwitch 🎃 Spooky Aivan 🎃 @ Re:Zero fan 🔮 (@AivanSwitch) reported

    @TheLastDistress No, it's a Nintendo service (I think) And I think it's the first time they put a game in the cloud

  • Dark_Panth3r The Equalizer (@Dark_Panth3r) reported

    @Qwik Yeah, but the second version is, because the first one makes the fps get worse, it was a failure. DLSS 2.0 is a true innovation for graphics. Can't wait for the new Nintendo Switch with this NVIDIA feature. It could run AAA games at high resolutions without any problem.

  • LaurentThierry_ Laurent Thierry (@LaurentThierry_) reported

    It seems that Nintendo shows its way for the future: - Hardware updates every 5-7 years for Nintendo games - Old ports - Indies - And cloud service for thirds with their AAA games This seems to be their only option in the long run, as they are unwilling to fit stronger hardware

    @legasimmer Idk ifs like a Nintendo switch in any way, but when my switch was completely empty and turned off and I recharged it, it wouldn't turn on for like half an hour or so and I panicked... But after waiting it turned back on fine and no issues since so If it could be similar?
