Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • AfterhoursKp KP ♈️🎂 bday 08th April (@AfterhoursKp) reported

    I think I need a Nintendo Switch just for Mario Kart and Crash Bandicoot 🤭

  • bebe_my_beloved bebe my beloved (@bebe_my_beloved) reported

    @awoken__artist probably not zelda; nintendo can be a bit troublesome with other people making money off their ips. I've never heard of any issues with the others, though

  • yyyyyyyyve yhvvh (@yyyyyyyyve) reported

    @JoeMerrick *Especially* since it's super rare. They could easily deny the problem like Nintendo did with joy con drift

  • Voltimino Voltimino (@Voltimino) reported

    @blumhouse I was in bed and secretly played with my Nintendo under my blanked when suddenly I heard something in front of my door. I was used to it because my dad would always check on me from time to time. The problem was that I could hear him snooring in his bedroom. We were alone.

    Trying to buy the Nintemdo Switch Game Voucher, but first you have to sign up for Nintendo online. Then it gives you a 7 day free trial, but you can't buy the pass on a 7 day free trial and there is no way to purchase membership as the store just gets an error message 🙃

    nintendo wii broken

  • HapyWanderer Mongunzoo, FlippingTheSwich (@HapyWanderer) reported

    @ndominick13 @NintyPrime @PlayerEssence Definitely. What I mean is that until very recently, there was an Interest Gap between 2D and 3D Mario, Likely still is, with the problem being that Nintendo puts almost no effort into the 2D Games anymore. A Quality 2D Mario where they actually try would sell 40 mil on Switch.

  • voiidkale kale (@voiidkale) reported

    It really is a shame that Nintendo won't release their soundtracks on any streaming service, because those soundtracks would be really popular

  • katamarandameko katamaran-dameko (@katamarandameko) reported

    @Shpeshal_Nick @MagitekDad It's not that. Like Nintendo had the same problem when games on both home and handheld consoles became complex. It's lack of resources. You can't devide your devs like this. Not in 23, when AAA games take 6 years.

  • AngrySonicBros AngrySonicBros (@AngrySonicBros) reported

    @Wierd_o78033920 @sortofamusing I mean if Sonic can do it and be successful at it both critically and financially then I think Mario can do it as well as long as they don’t milk it bone dry like what Illumination usually does but Nintendo still oversees production so it shouldn’t be a problem.

  • tsuyohime_ riabu (@tsuyohime_) reported

    Nintendo needs to fix their damn servers or fix the fact that if you finish a Anarchy Battle Series and win, but still get a Communication Error at the results screen, it still nets you a loss. This is why I'm so scared playing Ranked on this game man lol especially on series.

  • Fawfulthgreat64 Jamey (FTG64) 🏳️‍⚧️ Certified Mario Freak 🐀 (@Fawfulthgreat64) reported

    @YaMayaLazarus @E_King1 @Zhane_Star It's not even Miyamoto anymore. It's the IP Team. They literally had to make a Mandate Compliant replacement for Toadsworth in the movie. Because the OG is too unique for modern Nintendo. This isn't a Paper Mario problem.

  • tonpafucker69 Amber ❤ (@tonpafucker69) reported

    I’m literally embarrassed to ask friends to play with me because unless they’re freaks who are obsessed with splatoon they just get so fed up with the game and the constant communication errors!!!! Like is Nintendo not ashamed??????

  • cyberrb25 Cyberrb25 ✊✊🏼✊🏿 (@cyberrb25) reported

    @JonComms My issue with no more E3 is that having an event on a set date is no longer an inevitability. We've had weeks and weeks of "reset the clock" memes because Nintendo didn't launch the Direct in February but in March, or later in the month in September instead of early.

  • Tsunesub0307 ぱぺ (@Tsunesub0307) reported

    @Respawn @EA @EAHelp Apex on Nintendo Switch finds matching slower than usual in Ranked Matches. If you look into it, you'll find that other players are having the same issue. Please fix it

  • metaknightstand 💥🍌BaNaNa Boy Surprise🥧💥 (@metaknightstand) reported

    @yggdrasilsaltar The MAIN problem I have with the games comes from how dogshit and pointless they tried to make battling. The characters (for the majority) being generic from Nintendo Sterilization are small potatoes comparitively but it still stings alongside it

  • dinodphantom37 dinofan37 (@dinodphantom37) reported

    @wood_dddd @NintendoAmerica that's not Nintendo's problem

  • luxi_p luxi (@luxi_p) reported

    @Zappypantz also Nintendo/cygames had other games that they wanted to run like FEH so they cut the dragalia servers since it was performing less than it was worth to keep it up, but kakao games does not have that same issue LMAO

  • JP67112 JP6711 (@JP67112) reported

    @USJ_Official Terrible customer service, no information how to book tickets, the staff are too ashamed to say they don't know, after coming all the way from France ... truely terrible customer expérience @Nintendo

  • Jkr_808 J808 (@Jkr_808) reported

    @str8fromva1 @chefmessi @Wario64 It is another option you have. That is how Nintendo works with their trashy online service. If you don't think it is worth, ignore it. Don't use it. Stop hating because of yes, dummy

  • ShinobiPhoenix 🏳️‍🌈I am dealing with things... just fine. (@ShinobiPhoenix) reported

    @sickamore007 It's about family prices not being unusual and splitting the cost up reasonable based on the service. Why you seem to think that was "about Nintendo" seems to a you problem. Was comprehension and nuance a weak point in class? I know that's lost on the internet now, but damn

  • lukeyp95 lukeyp95 (@lukeyp95) reported

    Just setting in that I was huffing mad amounts of Copium to even THINK Nintendo would fix the problems I have with botw in totk and it wouldn’t just be the same game again

  • miamibikelife trillest (@miamibikelife) reported

    If interested in hacking they psp or Nintendo 3DS or even trying to upgrade there pc with new parts or if your pc is broken and you need something done my oldest brother. He’s beating everyone’s prices everywhere literally he has over 10 years of experience

  • Jhold31 Zorua3 (@Jhold31) reported

    @SahlarPiano I'm kinda concerned just bc it seems like it's doing that Nintendo thing of "for a sequel we add a bunch of new **** instead of fixing things" New mechanics look v cool but my main problems with BotW are not enough big dungeons (with BotW's physics system I think big dungeons...

  • Poronyos At the Edge (@Poronyos) reported

    @giugabs @TeamSea3on As far as I know SEGA has no Problem so far. They don't directly support them (Shame on them) but they also don't do anything against them. SEGA is not like Nintendo, luckily!

  • AJnSpace AJ (@AJnSpace) reported

    @PlaynWithStress That’s exactly what I had to do. The problem was, I had unlinked my Nintendo account from my Epic and it took some extra steps, but we eventually got there.

  • SagamiSword_ Chiaki Nanami (Kei) | @FLCL & Heart Gear (@SagamiSword_) reported

    @EstusNuts or simply because people want to play games. normal people care about games, I main nintendo despite having pc, series x and ps5 and have no problem with it

  • HUNT_R_02 ✝️🤖HUNT-R🤖✝️ (@HUNT_R_02) reported

    @_BlindNostalgia I would if I could, but something’s going on with my Nintendo network ID and I’m too lazy/nervous to contact Nintendo support to fix it xD

  • Manic_Socratic Allegedly Adan (@Manic_Socratic) reported

    @ZombiePhoenix2 I think that was Nintendo being a broken clock that's right twice a day. They just hate following industry trends so much they accidentally made the right move that makes way more sense for everyone.

  • SirGrimly SirGrimly (@SirGrimly) reported

    @RamRoseVal Speedrunners have already optimized the game beyond that point and that is with durability in mind... Plus, Elden Ring doesn't have that problem, so what's Nintendo's excuse? If anything, if people wanna be optimal over having fun LET THEM!
