Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • NintendoShame Nintendo Shame (@NintendoShame) reported

    It's been 63 days since the last game was added to the Nintendo Switch Online service

  • old_wood_pencil Dr. Pepper, PhD (@old_wood_pencil) reported

    If Sony and Nintendo sold their own official emulators they would make millions. The issue with third-party emulators is they aren't always gonna run well, if at all with certain games.

    if u buy a new switch and login to ur existing nintendo account can u download all the downloadable games for free / will my acnh island still transfer over etc or what

  • ds_detective The Darkside Detective (@ds_detective) reported

    @ampyourgrowth Hi, it was pulled from the North American eShop by Nintendo because of an age rating issue. It will hopefully be back online soon.

  • DeanoC Deano Calver (@DeanoC) reported

    @richgel999 @BF_Osval @AndreaPessino Apple issue with games is it doesn't understand it. Best thing they could do would be buy Nintendo or Sega and run them independently just with good hw and os base. I've seen the strange way they think games biz works from the inside. They don't get it.

  • nandoikari Fernando Ikari (@nandoikari) reported

    @GameSpot Yeah, seems like all consoles Xbox, PS, Nintendo are having problems. The drift issue is unacceptable.

  • ShiniciNT Matt (@ShiniciNT) reported

    @Theguy75768441 @nintendolife Xbox is happy with it because they're focused on selling a service now not hardware, Nintendo wouldn't be happy because they're selling hardware.

  • Moth182001 TenT (@Moth182001) reported

    @Blusling Ohhh okay I hope it works.. I've seen some people having the same issue and Nintendo just sent them back their Joycons without fixing anything because "there are no issues"

  • massoluk massoluk - Black Lives Matter. (@massoluk) reported

    @MatPiscatella Wishful thinking on my part, but may be Nintendo could throw in Nintendo Switch Online Service online only games (see Tetris 99) for XCloud to super sweeten the deal for everyone

  • massoluk massoluk - Black Lives Matter. (@massoluk) reported

    @MatPiscatella Wishful thinking on my part, but must be Nintendo could throw in Nintendo Switch Online Service games for XCloud to super sweeten the deal

  • ErikRevier Erik The Dad 🧢 (@ErikRevier) reported

    @aaronwhiteeee Nintendo causes stick drift... there are a handful of good guides to fix it if your feeling brave?

  • MDHX__ MDHX (@MDHX__) reported

    @OllyTei @MatPiscatella you think Nintendo the 130+ year company will put a Microsoft service on their device without them getting a cut?

  • daysafterastr0 Sean (@daysafterastr0) reported

    @jadethedoob exactly although some people do have a problem that the switch might end up being "the port machine" and nothing else which i can definitely see happening, nintendo really needs to hurry up with the next big first party game fast

  • JordyTheGamer Jordy (@JordyTheGamer) reported

    @nintendolife Been beating this drum over and over, GamePass on Switch through Xcloud. Either that, or Nintendo fully joining the Xbox Network to fix their servers. Which wouldn't be market altering, but still a really cool thing.

  • ganwooyu ana ✿ (@ganwooyu) reported

    @ftrazor ok but joystick drifting on genshin is gonna be so annoying when it comes out on switch .. either nintendo fixes that issue or it’ll simply be Hell

  • ChrisRe37312847 Chris Reynolds (@ChrisRe37312847) reported

    @RetroGamer_Mag @RetroGamer_Daz my subscription when renewed missed issue 219. It happens no big deal. Question as I have ordered the single issue online will it have the free Nintendo mag with it? Love the magazine keep up the good work. More importantly stay safe 👍

  • SMiyazakiTTV ☥SerenityMiyazaki☥ (@SMiyazakiTTV) reported

    Hey, @NintendoAmerica if you're so against emulation why don't you make your back catalogue of classic games more conveniently available for consumers? Remasters, ports even, a subscription service or a benefit to a Nintendo online membership for a library of core N64 games?

  • KarlChammas karl chammas (@KarlChammas) reported

    @NintendoAmerica how do you guys fix your chargers for the switch

  • Witchkink00 Witchking00 (@Witchkink00) reported

    @crisisbeat4 @Crisisbeat83 @TwitterSupport Same thing happened to me with NINTENDO. The problem is that after tons of messages to TWITTER, they replied that I had to contact NINTENDO to remove the DMCA request. Otherwise they couldn't do anything about it. NINTENDO never had answered my messages 😞 Im sorry man!!

  • DarwinElegant Elegant 👑 (@DarwinElegant) reported

    @dashrevolver A marketing deal? Yes (could be Master Chief in Smash etc). GamePass? No. Unless Nintendo gets a piece of the pie and that would definitely hurt Xbox bottom line. The third option I can think of is a long shot. But maybe Nintendo is starting a service that's supported by MS

  • FeroxV1 Ferox (@FeroxV1) reported

    @LottaRaIN Please nintendo fix this abomination of a character

  • reptarien corwin ¤-¤ (@reptarien) reported

    @MorsGames I don't have a problem with them announcing finished projects personally, but when they start reporting on unfinished, far off games I have more of a problem with it. Anything to not make nintendo's lawyers life's easier imo

  • carkles_ caurliflower (@carkles_) reported

    @gio_centric @NintendoAmerica Or buy the kit to fix them online. They’re like $12 and it takes 10 minutes.

  • Mayo00o_ Mike (@Mayo00o_) reported

    @Hunter208916686 See, this is the exact problem I have with fanboys. "Ooh the msft shills are poisoning the industry". The sony and nintendo shills are great guys, I guess. Hell, people shill for PC's so hard they call themselves the master race. But nooo, it's the microsoft guys.

  • BigSharkGaming BigSharkGaming (@BigSharkGaming) reported

    @NintendoAmerica After updating my #NintendoSwitch to version 12.0.1, suddenly none of my games are working. It just says "Unable to Start Software" with no error code or anything. What should I do?
