  • chounanren2 ChrisW (@chounanren2) reported

    @RamenMinMin @Lbabinz Just call Nintendo to get it fixed. I just called today and get my cart error fixed. This is the number I called 1 (855) 349-9517

  • Shiro_Motoori Shiro Motoori🔞🏳️‍🌈 (@Shiro_Motoori) reported

    @itzybitzyminnie @PoseidonEntmt I mean, bruh, it's ******* concrete. Nobody will really care if they use characters as a parking sign. I should've expected him to complain about Super Nintendo World’s sideline issue in Hollywood. Nope, the integrity of parking signs i more important! [ Apparently ]

  • JackivalTrades Jack | ✝️🖋💜 (@JackivalTrades) reported

    @breathofthelyle If they pulled the Nintendo Switch 1.5 like the DS Lite/DSi, then I'd be interested in. Upgrade the parts with joycon drift, and it would be amazing... though of course the joycon issues are their cashcow... Not counting OLED because it was not really... different?

  • thenewapplejuic ac (@thenewapplejuic) reported

    @ComicLoverMari See theirs no problem if you just go to Nintendo they refuse to price up their games

  • shrrigan Shrrigan (@shrrigan) reported

    @VenomB1 @NintendoAmerica The censorship simply took out characters who are minors flirting with your character, which is completely fine. Quit whining about it, there’s absolutely NO reason to have an issue with what they censored.

  • deedeethadon The Danger ⚠️ (@deedeethadon) reported

    @SaintAurelian Problem is it would be insanely difficult for a handheld to succeed in today’s market with how powerful phones are these days + they be getting yearly spec bumps. That’s a big reason the Vita failed and also why even Nintendo doesn’t make a proper handheld anymore

  • patricknotirl patrick (@patricknotirl) reported

    nintendo wii broken

  • Lets_GoMan Joker (real?) (@Lets_GoMan) reported

    @NintendoAmerica I'm having trouble connecting my credit card to the eShop on my Nintendo Switch so that I can buy the new Fired Emblem Game. I keep having this problem where I want to type in the info but my joycons won't stop ******* drifting

  • otitsisiht Tito Altamirano (@otitsisiht) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @GameStopHelp @GameStop hey Nintendo, why is GameStop selling preordered fire emblem engage divine editions with broken seals to customers and store associates saying they are not returnable and sometimes that they receive them like that?

  • KerspIat ker (@KerspIat) reported

    @MoolaMixtape And yeah I assume it's a mass reporting issue, idk if nintendo cares enough to actually monitor posts

  • InlandMagpie272 InlandMagPie (@InlandMagpie272) reported

    Anyone know how to fix controller drift on Nintendo Switch? If you do let me know.

  • antitractionist Kingly Weapon Haver (@antitractionist) reported

    @SarahMcCostumes Emulators of course solve this issue. And Nintendo will destroy any it catches wind of. It sucks!

  • MoolaMixtape Moola (@MoolaMixtape) reported

    this is NOT to say i dont think its canon!! just based on nintendos history with approaching these issues i really hope i get proven wrong.. please john nintendo

  • sharinglung5 S (@sharinglung5) reported

    @blizbling @Lbabinz That’s so crazy how the price tag right there doesn’t match the price error. Nice one but shame Nintendo isn’t selling them at the old price like the other reprints did.

  • tuxedobowser Tuxedo Bowser (@tuxedobowser) reported

    @Linkachu33 Yeah exactly! I called Nintendo support to let them know what happened. Along with exactly the "error message" I was receiving in the cart and the fact my cart was constantly showing empty & products didnt seem to add themselves to it.

  • UC_Borb Borb (@UC_Borb) reported

    @sleeprhit_ @ZSquaredPlusC 1. Nintendo, 2. First, 3. Party, 4. rom, 5. service,

  • Shillhouse420 Thrillhouse (@Shillhouse420) reported

    @Gaming_Life_ @IGN Nah, I’ve never had my switch outside a protective case. I’ve never cracked a phone screen. I’ve never broken a controller. I’ve had to replace 3 joycons w/stick drift. They’re designed by retards. Nintendo have acknowledged the design fault. It’s not a “look after it” case @ all

  • _cthuluu jenn(y) (@_cthuluu) reported

    @creatyler_ but isnt ur nintendo switch is broken? 🤨

  • alexS247 Alex Saber (@alexS247) reported

    @JezCorden It’s not hard to see the problem.. Big publishers need to stop chasing trends, and putting profit over quality. Full stop. GaaS is proving to be too risky and creatively bankrupt. Take a page from FromSoft’s, Nintendo’s, and Capcom’s book—to name a few—and AAA will be fine.

  • Roosturd Rooster (@Roosturd) reported

    @FroggyTheMii Yeah but the Wii U also had a gimmick nobody cared for, no big games at launch, no real direction, awful marketing, was a successor to a console owned mostly by 70 year olds, and lacked any ambition. A switch 2 could rectify those issues if Nintendo plays their cards right.

  • iii_duffy Mike Duffy III (@iii_duffy) reported

    @Aidan64NESPlus Glitch doesn’t really possess Nintendo’s DNA

  • LinearAztec Linear Aztec (@LinearAztec) reported

    @xaviersonline The Wii U had the potential to be the coolest damn machine on the entire planet and outsell the Xbox One if Nintendo did cause all of it’s worst problems themself

  • gamerlakitu Sage (@gamerlakitu) reported

    @NintendoAmerica I walked into Target today and they said they can't sell it to me until Monday...??? He didn't even give me a reason. He said I guess its a manufacturer thing. And then walked away. Very rude about it too. Anyone encounter this issue at Target??? #target #FireEmblemEngage

  • MacksAMillion_ MacksAMillion (@MacksAMillion_) reported from Atlanta, Georgia

    @chefmade_92 @loverandcreator No cap… if sony integrate the psp with its main console nintendo in trouble

  • tielesspanda snack (@tielesspanda) reported

    wrathfully blaming nintendo for society's issues and modern day malaise. ""just think what could have been,"" i sob into my pillow

  • BobOnTheKebab Bob On The Kebab (@BobOnTheKebab) reported

    @yggdrasilsaltar From what I've heard it definitely seems to be specifically a Paper Mario issue. Whether it's on Intelligent Systems or Nintendo's end is beyond me.

  • Zipfile0317 Zipfile (@Zipfile0317) reported

    @Hamster637 That’s if you have the Nintendo online service or whatever it is.

  • Linkachu33 Linkachu (@Linkachu33) reported

    @tuxedobowser I am having the same issue with my cart! You just called the Nintendo support line?

  • Cale_Baird Cale Baird (@Cale_Baird) reported

    Does anyone else have internet connection problems trying to play #Splatoon3? All my other Nintendo Switch games work online just fine.

  • PlushDogPolitic DarkManX (@PlushDogPolitic) reported

    @xaviersonline To my Nintendo stans; great games + ****** company still means a ****** company. I will forever be part of the problem in never purchasing another game from them.
