Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • NOleg_finadvice ICPunk#6413 (@NOleg_finadvice) reported

    @crypto_is_good people should not be able to impersonate a nintendo product and profit from it could call it a simulator and avoid all this trouble, but we cannot call the game the actual thing.

  • Puncheur_music Puncheur (@Puncheur_music) reported

    @LucasCa76586227 @MsVeezy_baybee @FortniteStatus So if you have your account on multiple Switches, only one Switch will be your primary Switch. On this Switch there is no need to check whether the software can be played, meaning no need to connect to Nintendo's servers. At least this was the problem in my case.

    @Walmart you guys need to fix your 3rd party sellers. It's out of control and fire a company as big as you, it doesn't seem like you care that you are losing money. EX: Nintendo switch w/ Mario kart 8, bought it for $299, a week later I'm told that it's delayed w/no date.

  • LeBanMn lemn (@LeBanMn) reported

    @ToonLinkIrl @YorozuyaAlexis “Skill issue” I’m sorry Nintendo sucks

  • DatElectricLoaf The Rarest Amphybre (@DatElectricLoaf) reported

    Looks like Nintendo's servers are back online now. Time to play Borderlands 2 on my Switch. The outage didn't last long at least.

  • ShroOnTwitch Shrodinger (@ShroOnTwitch) reported

    @vergolophus It has always been extremely remarkable to me just how poor Nintendo's Online service has been over the years

  • vergolophus VERGO 💥 🧠 💥 Psynauts 2 for GOTY2021 (@vergolophus) reported

    Nintendo's Online service will be down because of the Amazone outage for a while, huh.

  • Icy_Wings Icy Wings (@Icy_Wings) reported

    @eszzz Did you see Nintendo's last online service ratio?

  • teharrisonfox55 Thomas E Harrison (@teharrisonfox55) reported

    @Destructo_Dan @Ubisoft Sonic, Crash, Spyro, Banjo, Rayman. Why do so many beloved mascots have to suffer through greed, stupidity, arrogance and more. Even Mario and Link has suffered through Nintendo's arrogance

  • Dj_Slumdog01 DJslumdog (@Dj_Slumdog01) reported

    @Spiderman209986 Nintendo will never fix their online service at this rate

  • CaptainApolix Nick (@CaptainApolix) reported

    Is Nintendo link with AWS? I can’t get online since the outage?

  • Tattoo_VO 🎙Tattoo VO: Audio Artwork by Dee Alvis (@Tattoo_VO) reported

    @grhufnagl See, that's why I had a subscription to magazines like Nintendo Power instead. 1 issue answered more of my questions, cost me about as much per issue as a 1 minute call to those numbers and I wouldn't get in trouble for running up my parent's phone bill

  • Xlugger Taya : gamer time (@Xlugger) reported

    i havent played any other PS game just 0 PSO2 was... a nightmare of menus. I will return to PS0 despite servers being dead. i WILL use mother trinity glitch with the Nintendo power magazine weapon. **** u.

  • sakuraleif Sakura Megami Tensei V (@sakuraleif) reported

    @NintendoAmerica shut the servers down again

  • DyROCC DyROCC (@DyROCC) reported

    @dissensia @TanukiDanShow It's not Nintendo themselves doing this. Yes they are responding to reports but other players are making the reports that get these Creators banned. It's my understanding Federico didn't use a glitch in the last level and it was probably flagged for the title alone.

  • G_R_I_M_A 🖤Grima🖤 (@G_R_I_M_A) reported

    So uh exactly why are nintendo's servers down

  • DarbyOGillTV DarbyOGill (@DarbyOGillTV) reported

    Welp, I guess Nintendo Online is down (probably from the big aws outage?) Gonna try something else!

  • fausett_jacob Melvik (@fausett_jacob) reported

    I knew #Nintendo's online server was always unstable, but Now I can't even get on even though I have internet. #NintendoOnline is always broken.

  • tall_xlhung Xtra Tall • XL Hung 🐷 (@tall_xlhung) reported

    Is anyone else having problems with the Nintendo e shop ? #nintendoswitch

  • ladyriven Riven 🔜 #PAXUnplugged (@ladyriven) reported

    I guess AWS is still down. I was hoping that we could activate our PAX Badges by now but the website won't even load. Having trouble with Nintendo Switch Online, too.

  • junelletubania Junelle Uchi Tubania (@junelletubania) reported

  • CahRonShooM KaranshuIsMyCity (@CahRonShooM) reported

    @CapablePerform1 @JustTheClippy I hope so too man. I'm at least glad Toei's trending. Japan has a problem with this stuff, but Toei is a big offender too. Them and Nintendo, but thankfully Nintendo just kinda stopped doing that Either way I'm just hoping at the very least Mark gets his stuff back

    Hey everyone this is the operations director for Nintendo Switch Online. We’re so grateful to have you all as blindly loyal customers. We currently have no plans to improve the service since we already have your money, but I encourage you to keep tweeting about it b/c free press!
