Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • _lotakune froyo (@_lotakune) reported

    @NintendoAmerica I don't have a issue with spreading a games content with updates. It's just with aces and super rush, it wasn't enough to keep the initial audience to come back. I have faith in Next-Level that the updates will be substantial to the game and keep the audience engaged.

  • AfroMacintosh Aidan • BLM • 💙💛 (@AfroMacintosh) reported

    @Purple__Paradox @LuigiSidekick "modern lazy pump-out-mediocre-games-fast and maybe fix em later approach" Nintendo's actually Bethesda?

  • RebelDoctor2 Rebel Doctor (@RebelDoctor2) reported

    @DIOGOFFICIAL @XboxGamerD @IdleSloth84 Nintendo don't have a gamepass like service ********

  • JayyMission Jameson (@JayyMission) reported

    @ImpishMATT Yeah, I'm really tired of the pseudo-live-service approach Nintendo has been taking with games lately. I'd really rather they release the game complete instead of add in the missing content later, free or not. It seems like a cheap was to try to extend online engagement.

  • the_dustycrazy DusTee (@the_dustycrazy) reported

    @NintendoAmerica "Oh nooo the game isn't complete at launch aaaaaaaaa why can't we get the new characters nowwwwww" It's all free. I don't see the problem. Smash Ultimate's dlc wasn't. Call me a bootlicker but I really don't see the problem with this.

  • RjOmegaHD1 Rj Omega #SummerOfSplatoon (@RjOmegaHD1) reported

    @NintendoAmerica yeaah its saying here error code

  • Youtroid Youtroid (@Youtroid) reported

    @jackVS_ They want to avoid licensing issues with Square Enix as much as possible with it being a Nintendo licensed event, I imagine.

  • CartiMain Kanye/Carti/Kendrick fan (@CartiMain) reported

    NINTENDO FIX YOUR ******* ONLINE

  • Generic_Soda Generic_Soda #P4AURollback #P4U2Rollback (@Generic_Soda) reported

    I am once again asking if anybody knows anybody I could talk to about refurbishing a Nintendo DS. It's an original DS (the brick). The system itself is functional, the only work that needs to be done is that the hinge for the top and bottom parts is broken.

  • CThreeleaf Chris ThreeLeaf ☘️ (@CThreeleaf) reported

    @PogTack I mean I guess I trust them to make better games, but like... c'mon lmao. Nintendo still hasn't really proven anything about fixing the incomplete launch content issue, so why trust them now just because someone else is developing it 💀

  • JayyMission Jameson (@JayyMission) reported

    @TAK0YAK14 @NintendoAmerica That's fair, but also like... All the other Mario sports games on Switch also launched pretty blatantly incomplete so its kind of damning with faint praise lol It's >fine< I guess, I'm just really tired of this pseudo-games-as-service business model.

  • tubbyrolls 🤖tubbyrolls🤖 (@tubbyrolls) reported

    @vivivindicator Really getting tired of this "live service" model Nintendo does 😭. They already did this with Aces and Golf, like just release the game with a full roster man 💔

  • ConnorStMich CONNOR (@ConnorStMich) reported

    @RealitiesCore @WardenGg @NintendoAmerica We’re not expecting the game to not have DLC or post launch content, people wouldn’t mind post launch content if the game actually had tons of content at launch instead of drip feeding the content through out the months, which is the issue with Nintendo online games

  • PanurgeJr Player Named Later (@PanurgeJr) reported

    @JayyMission @NintendoAmerica So don't buy it until the final update is released. I'd say "problem solved" but this isn't a problem, so, personal issue solved, I guess.

  • smooth_mclean BusterBoy (@smooth_mclean) reported

    @Jaymonius Pretty sure there's too much red tape to get that game. The games being added seem to be games that Nintendo could easily get the license to host on their service. To be fare Caveman Combat 2 is a good game. Oh sorry, i mean Congo's Caper.

  • AlbarnsDemon Crona (@AlbarnsDemon) reported

    @lordlamb2 @TheNCSmaster @NintendoAmerica As stated. My problem is the quality of the content. Not the idea of free updates.

  • PapyrusSemi The Depressed Mess @ BLM + bad at piracy (@PapyrusSemi) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Apparently the game is actually pretty good and there's more of an online focus so maybe it won't crash and burn quite as hard as Mario Golf?

  • Miguel_Casso Miguel (@Miguel_Casso) reported

    @Reecee_yt @NintendoAmerica Do you have proof that all the tennis and golf content was ready to be released at the launch of the video game without any bug or glitch? (I answer you have no proof)

  • D0KID0K1 isaac (@D0KID0K1) reported

    @Leifyyy_ maybe it could have been a nintendo power issue?

  • Miguel_Casso Miguel (@Miguel_Casso) reported

    @Reecee_yt @NintendoAmerica Do you have proof that all the tennis and golf content was ready to be released at the launch of the video game without any bug or glitch? (I answer you do not have it)

  • Iron_Cgull Julian/Iron Seagull (@Iron_Cgull) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Dang, thought maybe Strikers would’ve avoided the same issue as Golf and Tennis since it’s a different developer 😟

  • archmageofdice Mer (they/she) (@archmageofdice) reported

    @unique_exemplar You can send in your joycons to Nintendo at no charge and they will fix the drift if you don't /want/ to spend money.

  • coderedmac AndrewTS (@coderedmac) reported

    @LisaMcRad VC was a good idea handled poorly with its drip feed approach. Access to tons of games all the time could've been cool. Sega had a better service with Sega Channel. Over 20 years ago. Just play ROMs and don't pay Nintendo for this. GC games or later might be worth the money.

  • tammnc17 T. Shklovsky (trash panda arc) (@tammnc17) reported

    "but we have to consider the issue of brand identities in the metaverse era.." he mumbles to himself, left hand swiping the newsfeed, soaking in the morning rush of information. "honey, your cereals are soaking up the milk.." she whispers as their son boots up the nintendo switch

  • StrikerObi StrikerObi (@StrikerObi) reported

    But why would Capcom, Konami, EA, etc. ever sign their legacy content over to Nintendo's subscription service when they can instead re-package it themselves into a classics bundle and then sell it direct-to-consumer?

  • Reverseuh Reverse (@Reverseuh) reported

    @fwurrel @NintendoAmerica I do agree, they have one of the best customer service also.

  • Widdlywham Widdlywham (@Widdlywham) reported

    @NamelessEnemy It has something to do with them using the same type of data transfer method since the GameCube I think? Nintendo doesn't feel like they have to upgrade that particular service cause there's no reason to. People still buy their online games even if they have connection issues

  • NintendoShame Nintendo Shame (@NintendoShame) reported

    It's been 310 days since the last game was added to the Nintendo Switch Online service
