  • Titancrasher01 Titancrasher01 (@Titancrasher01) reported

    @NetherRealm there’s an issue with Kotal Kahn on Nintendo Switch with his totems. Damage totems give him no buff at all and heal totems are severely laggy or provide no health at all

    @Cheesehead302 @Iamthepacman10 @eurogamer Every company has problems, an yes, Nintendo is a batter company than Sega.

  • Trike_Man115 Trike Man (@Trike_Man115) reported

    As much of a mortal kombat fan as I am, and as much of a Nintendo Switch diehard I am, I do NOT recommend MK11 on switch. At least not right now. maybe if a switch pro comes around or they decide to optomize it better itll be ok, but it crashes and cutscenes lag a lot.

  • Venty_Echo *Echo* (@Venty_Echo) reported

    @thatotherman001 The best online experience. There is nothing better than Nintendo's Online Service.

  • fuzzatron 🎋 (@fuzzatron) reported

    @TheDongSide @NintendoAmerica @MortalKombat Yeah but framerate is the big decider here. I'll take 720p/60FPS no problem.

  • dek_lit Dyerack Loite (@dek_lit) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Please fix SSBU online; I’d seriously rather wait hours for a game than instantly join a fight I didn’t want to be in at all.

  • Vantablack523 Vantablack | smash.gg/king (@Vantablack523) reported

    So I get paired up against a Joker on quickplay, everything's going fine, then suddenly on the second stock a smash ball appears and it starts lagging super hard. Nintendo, what ********

  • ChaoStatic93 💪 SuperStatic (@ChaoStatic93) reported

    Clearly a big ******* issue! Nintendo pls fix this shit lol

  • Vaktrus Vaktrus (@Vaktrus) reported

    @AlphaFoxWarfare @SusLord_Moxley @NintendoAmerica I'm exaggerating, but any input lag at all is unacceptable when it comes to games like that. it may as well be 2 seconds because by the time it'll have registered the button press I'd already be dead in tons of situations.

  • Vaktrus Vaktrus (@Vaktrus) reported

    @AlphaFoxWarfare @SusLord_Moxley @NintendoAmerica oh you're right! I love 2 seconds of input lag and bad bitrate, and buying a console I have no interest in in order to do so!

  • ZayyXVIII ゼイ (@ZayyXVIII) reported

    Also MK11’s net code is STUPID GOOD I swear to god **** smash ultimate’s online. Nintendo needs to get their shit together man. I’m playing people with 2 bar connections with barely any lag

  • humblenarc The Humble Narcissist (@humblenarc) reported

    @Nitomatta Okay nvm he's tweeting at Nintendo I see the issue now

  • GayestTiefling Fiona-Lily, Sleepy LGBTiefling (@GayestTiefling) reported

    @joe_mamma_deez @WarmSafflina @Nintendo @NintendoAmerica Well military service for one

  • TheRamenDon TheRamenDon (@TheRamenDon) reported

    @0li0s I'd call Nintendo Customer Service and beg for the Fighter's Pass to be removed from my account

  • RejectedAngel7 RejectedAngel (@RejectedAngel7) reported

    Read this thread please. @NintendoAmerica step up your customer service and maybe have an appeal process.

  • Surreal_SRL Surreal_ (@Surreal_SRL) reported

    Takes Nintendo years to maybe fix issues with their games but the nanosecond someone makes a fan game they obliterate it lmao

  • AlishRG Alish (TTV - Aliontoh) (@AlishRG) reported

    @RyanShrinefox @ericutz4thewin My only issue is the timing of the Nintendo fans excitement, they have waited 6+ months for a offical announcement, instead of just buying it where its available at a cheaper price. I just don't let platforms choose what I play, I play games wherever they're available

  • KKalvaitis Doomsayer Kes (@KKalvaitis) reported

    @wastelandJD @mega_shepard @danwolfgang_ @NerdKing52 Problem being SEGA always had arcade sensibilities at heart and we're in a post-arcade world. They also seem to have a good thing going with Nintendo, so I doubt they'd get back into hardware.

  • McLeanBen ❌ Benjamin McLean ❌ (@McLeanBen) reported

    @SgtHarvey @nerionaya @jbradfield @JimSterling Nintendo would like you to believe unregulated quality control caused the crash, but the PC market was existent at that time, it had absolutely zero quality control and it had no crash. It has never had a crash, ever.

  • iorilian Julian De la Rosa (@iorilian) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @MortalKombat The graphics do not look bad but the problem is with the hair of the characters

  • ShinkouKyoukai Shinkou (信) (@ShinkouKyoukai) reported

    @NinEverything Now if only their new joycons DONT have that bad drift problem and are cheaper. Then there be some good from Nintendo doing things right. Thats all i look forward to.

  • _Shamwow Shamwow 💫 (@_Shamwow) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @MortalKombat You guys need to fix one of Liu Kang’s combos, the one forward+3,3,3,3 😭 it juggles the characters in PS4 but it knocks them down on the switch

  • Herowatcher840 Hero Watcher840 (@Herowatcher840) reported

    @Nintendeal Okay...The Wii U had a crap ton of problems,hell i didn't buy that many games for it,and was 1 of Nintendo's worst console and Era but it was still enjoyable

  • MeowUwO69hasrx PersonaUser69hahafunnynumber (@MeowUwO69hasrx) reported

    @AlphaFoxWarfare @NintendoAmerica I have a PS4, Nitemdo Switch, And a broken Xbox One and to be perfectly honest I find the 1k to be just fine, I know that you are proud about making people angry but tbh you didn't make me angry. You are entitled to your own opinion, but resolution isn't everything.

  • Evan23976584 Evan (@Evan23976584) reported

    @KontrolFreek Yes i got it from walmart and the box had a Nintendo logo. I brought the kontrolfreeks on Amazon would that be a problem

  • miqotememes RIP Peepee🎇 (@miqotememes) reported

    @ShiroU1988 I had this issue except it was my neon blue one. Ended up calling Nintendo support and they waived the repair fee because it was weeks after my warranty had expired.

  • Worldsmyths Worldsmyths (@Worldsmyths) reported

    @faylloumi I go through spurts playing video games. I have to be in the right mood. I grew up playing Mario Brothers on Nintendo, and I love Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot...or at least the first three or four of those series. Then they got crappy.

  • Kylethh Kyle 🐻 (@Kylethh) reported

    Albion 4 is the furthest dated tournament I've signed up to and it's probably going to be my last. I do think this game is more enjoyable and better than Smash 4 but Ultimate still sucks ass and I doubt Nintendo care enough to fix it via patches.

  • CapainN Capain N (@CapainN) reported

    @Cdennyblog @I_Am_Timms @Jihkz @NintendoAmerica @MortalKombat Yeah. The Krypt looks worse then the main game. It's sad but I imagine patches are coming to fix these texture issues.

  • RickDoozle Bob Jones (@RickDoozle) reported

    @AStartShow Problem is not the IP protection so much as it is the internet just can't shut the hell up about cool stuff...if we just said SHHH don't tell Nintendo it would still be there 😬

  • Sir_Rainbows Sir Rainbows (@Sir_Rainbows) reported

    @nyaruma @produmbasses @joe_mamma_deez @WarmSafflina @Nintendo @NintendoAmerica I mean go and look for yourself, search for other flag stages with a message, also, the small rant the "****" went on is caused by not knowing the problem or by not being aware of it

  • schmidtke23 Kevin Schmidtke (@schmidtke23) reported

    @AStartShow I think the bigger problem is that someone that is not Nintendo will inevitably profit off of this use of their IP. Download sites, Youtubers/Streamers, the fan devs themselves, someone will probably make money off of this. At least that's my reasoning behind this.

  • peenSLly super loser (@peenSLly) reported

    So far, I spent $42 on Pocket Camp Can't wait to lose all the shit I bought in that game when Nintendo ends the service like Miitomo **** the online requirement

  • pinkiepie2787 Brendan Linebarger (@pinkiepie2787) reported

    What I didn’t expect was for it to look like an early PlayStation 3 game! This is downright insulting guys! You owe the ENTIRE Nintendo switch community an apology and you need to fix it! I know this game can be better, and that @NetherRealm can DO better!

  • tudsworthington - ̗̀ Tuddy ̖́- (@tudsworthington) reported

    @superashbro86 There's nothing wrong with only liking a few Nintendo franchises, for the record! The problem is when you let said franchises become your entire online "brand", as such.

  • BronzeShow David (@BronzeShow) reported

    Y'all out here really making stages that are obviously against Nintendo's terms of service I've seen too many Twitter tiddy artists making Twitter tiddies in the stage editor and just why

  • m_nwwn1 Marc Thankful4Christ (@m_nwwn1) reported

    @IndieGamerChick (A large part of the reason I haven't upgraded past 3DS is the fact that there's no way I could afford a reasonable game library if every game is $60. That's more a Nintendo/Sony/Xbox/AAA problem than an indie one though.)

  • STEEKZ_RL STEEKZ (@STEEKZ_RL) reported

    @chickencoprl There is strategy to rumble. Using certain power ups during certain situations. And I’m pretty sure the lag is from the Nintendo Switch.

  • NizzleJordizzle 🎩 𝓔𝓷𝓭𝓮𝓻 🎩 (@NizzleJordizzle) reported

    @digwithoutblig @NintendoAmerica I mean lag cause u have WiFi issues

  • Roys_Boy Meme Stealer #TeamScorbunny (@Roys_Boy) reported

    @MochiScott @PugiTiger @OneAngryGamerHD Because it's not the place to push your beliefs, and if you have a problem with that go to Nintendo

  • r3gulations Regs (@r3gulations) reported

    Nintendo has some serious fan service issues. A port of a 34 year old game on a 37 year old system isn't going to cut into their digital storefront sales. Emulation keep vintage Nintendo gaming alive while they stumbled with subpar systems. Now as a thanks, they are squashing it.

  • JordanJMottaV JordanMotta (@JordanJMottaV) reported

    @eurogamer I don't know what is the problem of @NintendoAmerica with this.

  • TQuill Tyler Quill (@TQuill) reported

    Nintendo Switch Graphics Fix PSA: Adjust the brightness with the MK logo in handheld mode. Seems like there’s a bug that doesn’t display the logo until you’re at 90/100 on most TVs. Go down to about 60 or 70/100, graphics will look so much better. #MK11 @noobde @NetherRealm 😉👌🏼

    @nineteen84 Oh yeah, I hate that aloooot. Hopefully Nintendo finds a way to fix that later on. 😬

  • BlueFlar3 BlueFlare #PlayXenoblade (@BlueFlar3) reported

    @NintendoBoy1710 @Ninterdo1 God damn it, you liked it so I saw this and thought this was real :(. I was so excited, I thought Nintendo was actually trying to fix their problems and improve their own console

  • RL_Support Rocket League Help (@RL_Support) reported

    @cullydk Hi Patrick! Please note that a Nintendo Switch Online subscription is required in order to be able to play Rocket League online, which is why you are running into this error message and are unable to redeem promo codes. We hope this clears things up!

    @NintendoAmerica @MortalKombat Currently torn between which version to get, though I think I'll wait until the Switch version gets a patch that fixes every crash to decide.
