Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • laylastardrop layla EX (@laylastardrop) reported

    having seen a good couple roundups on nso n64 emulation, I feel like it's less important to emphasize the emulation issues and more important to emphasize that for some reason Nintendo managed to take a bunch of pre-existing ROMs and make them far worse

  • TheNospine Nospine (@TheNospine) reported

    @NianticHelp Your support team misled me into deleting my Pikmin Bloom account so I could make a new one with a Google login. Now I'm unable to choose my username and can't link my Nintendo account again because they're tied to a dead account. Please, help me fix this situation.

  • Jameron4evaSean Sean Clevenger (@Jameron4evaSean) reported

    @Leviathan1015 @masterbearjedi @NintyPrime Stop acting like saying Nintendo could handle this way better, and before people even think of pirating. Then yes Nintendo can 100% go after the pirates, but they shouldn't then act like they're angels when they know they're pissing consumers off well before it's an issue.

  • JAGLetsPlays Just Another Game (@JAGLetsPlays) reported

    @TheRetroKaiju @TheAwesomeGN @ExpandDong15 I don't consider any of the digital games Nintendo sells to be mine. That's why I buy hard copies. I still buy the digital ones for convenience, but if they shut down the service, whatever I don't have downloaded is gone forever anyways. This isn't new to me.

  • WilliamCail1 William Cail (They/Their/Him) (@WilliamCail1) reported

    @FiftyDumplings @nintendolife Translation I have crap internet and I'm gonna blame Nintendo for my crap internet. I have no issues with NSO. Enough of your BS.

  • JAGLetsPlays Just Another Game (@JAGLetsPlays) reported

    @TheRetroKaiju @TheAwesomeGN @ExpandDong15 And then there's digital on top of that. Plus I have Animal Crossing DLC, so that's fine. I might even buy it hard for 25 on top of the service. I don't care about the Genesis games. Like at all. Nintendo already has enough of my money where this won't matter.

  • JEKeep Joshua--"the Crypt"--Keep(er) (@JEKeep) reported

    @ylitvinenko @Sierra_OffLine I started, but then it claimed that Nintendo's base service "flew under the radar" from criticism and even as someone who only tangentially follows gamer stuff anymore, I've heard people complaining about it pretty regularly. And I lost interest in reading on.

  • k1ng_mang0 Master Manghost👻 (@k1ng_mang0) reported

    @MegaDarkFlames Because they were dismissing criticism by saying most people who dislike the service aren’t Nintendo fans😐

  • BoiCritz Big Dad (@BoiCritz) reported

    @hyprEvo @pcgamer This is a garbage excuse. A mega-corporation like Nintendo with hundreds upon hundreds of devs and employees screws something up emulation while a tiny handful of volunteer fans create something far better and smoother. That’s not a resources problem.

  • ceryscjones Cer! (@ceryscjones) reported

    @AC_Isabelle @NintendoUK Mines not working ..? It’s 6.50 and nothing?

  • BIFCUL81 James Cullen (@BIFCUL81) reported

    @ForceinUnison @AndrewSannn @Ninfriendo_1973 Yes, but a YouTube trailer doesn’t ask anything does it? People could be dropping a dislike for any number of reasons that won’t necessarily relate to customer satisfaction with the service. Could be hate for Nintendo, could be “because that their online service is better”.

  • ReyMaxence1 Maldarion (@ReyMaxence1) reported

    @NintendoEurope some problem for purchase or switch the online from solo to familial :/ maybe fix nintendo e-shop

  • ToumaShep ❄️Bayonetta 3 Enthusiast🌊 (@ToumaShep) reported

    @ACruelWinter Nintendo decided to make an "Expansion" to their online services, you can either choose to remain on the Original Service or "expand" it. These expansions were mainly an Emulator for select N64 & SEGA games and the Happy Home DLC for AC:NH.

  • NebulaPixel 🎃👻NeBOOla👻🎃 (@NebulaPixel) reported

    one more question: how long does it usually take for them to ship it to nintendo/for them to fix it/ for me to have my switch back
