    @Harshmelo @prozdkp Smash fans aren't giving them a pass on this. It's likely Nintendo apologists who are giving them a pass. Smash diehards are pissed about online play and input lag on any of the modes

    @Duck_Scout Alot of characters, you wouldn't know their age unless told. If Nintendo made Zelda 20, her design would still match that age. If someone was getting off to Zelda because they're under age, then yes, there's a problem but most people are getting off to her looks, not her age.

    My teleport bullshit is at least somewhat practical now. Besides Nintendo lag flinging me UNDER THE STAGE I'm actually ok at it

    see myself playing a lot of Smash Ultimate on my own. And I'm not really into playing online (partly because Nintendo is now charging for their online service). So... with all this considered... I will probably end up not buying Smash Ultimate.

    @CartridgeGames You (and me too) are already in-eligible (at least via registering through Twitter). Your profile picture includes a Mii and thus, is intellectual property of Nintendo so could be issues with copyright.

    Nintendo. I don’t want to do a 4 player smash online. I don’t want a bunch of items spawning everywhere online. I don’t want final smashes ohkoing me online. I don’t want to play 5 stock online. I don’t want online lagging even though I pay for it. I just want 1v1 no items omega

    Zantetsuken_EX (@summonedswords) reported

    @BlackBeartic That depends if Nintendo gets people to fix their net code. I doubt Smash is even formatted to GGPO. Either way that's not reassuring for me. This is what happens when you live in rural town...in the south -__-

    @JazzyJoeXD @NintendoAmerica @FeastOfFiction @jfwong It probably won't since most companies don't fix the servers a patch later after launch

    Nintendo needs to fix their online I’m highly disappointed in it I can’t even play smash against my friends without any lag

    @Sogreblute1 @NintendoAmerica That's why it's free with the online service, not the other way around.

    @NintendoAmerica Update 1.2.0 better fix Smash Online. It took you a few days to patch out Mr. Game & Watch's Indian reference to please some SJW's who weren't gonna buy the game anyway but when it comes to people who actually bought the game you act like you can't hear us.

    @RabbitKamenStar i havent even touched the online yet, but im sure nintendo will fix it. i think smash 4 had shit online at launch too

  • LunaPlatinum1
    ̔̏̊ (@LunaPlatinum1) reported

    Don't see any of these likely except Crash While FE is good I think the Smash fans complaining will really get to the creators and Nintendo themselves, so it's half half, but overall no harm done in FE Square is dumb with what we've seen with Cloud (though understandable) 1/2

  • ArksPen

    @SpawnWaveMedia Reggie talked about how Nintendo has improvements coming to the online service. I wonder if this is related.

  • inklingsetho
    Festive Mollusk Guy 🦑 (@inklingsetho) reported

    @antdude92 Geno's not happening, and Crash is just wishful thinking. Banjo I could see happening but at the same time we shouldn't get our hopes up. Nintendo has said that all of these characters will be from series new to Smash so that thankfully rules out Fire Emblem.

    Predictions for the remaining 4 DLC characters for Smash: - Geno - Banjo - Crash Bandicoot - Rep From Fire Emblem Three Houses Because It Doesn't Matter What You Want, Nintendo Chose This Set Of DLC Save this tweet

    @GoNintendoTweet Nintendo needs more simpler unified system. Nintendo eShop is fine for that. One thing I hate about Switch Online service is that it's different than Nintendo network. Nintendo network should been the name of Switch online in my opinion.

  • MintMania2DX
    My Avatar is Relevant Again (@MintMania2DX) reported

    @Shadowtony8 @HughQuinn12 @NintendoAmerica To be fair to the service, there's no way I would've played games like Solomon's Key, much less bought them, without them being available like this. It's like Netflix, with all that entails.

    Sir Scribbly (@ScribblyKiddo) reported

    @DaveAceYT I’m not sure why anyone has online issues. I’ve never bought a LAN adapter and quite honestly, I’m not even sure what it is, but I’ve never had online issues with any of my Nintendo consoles

  • megamanx74
    Chill penguin 210 (@megamanx74) reported

    @BATTLE_ATHLETE @Lythero @NintendoAmerica @Nintendo @NintendoEurope The same issue with me trying to play local with my friends. It’s so frustrating to know that I can’t play on my switch while I’m at my friends place because of this. Smash 4 for the 3ds was godlike when it game to playing online on the go.

  • NickLuntDesign
    Nicholas lunt (@NickLuntDesign) reported

    disappointed with #SSBU. Controls feel clunky with the characters that used to feel smooth & responsive. Content is lacking (with the exception of #WorldOfLight) & theres no point in playing online because of the lag. Come on #Nintendo, you can do better than this #SSBUseless

    @NintendoAmerica Gahh! I keep getting bans because SSBU keeps "losing connection" in the middle of a match. Trust me Nintendo, it's not my internet, it's your service. This is ridiculous #SmashBrosUltimate

    @NintendoAmerica If the online was taken out of this service I wonder how many people would still buy it. Let's be real here without the online none of these subscription services could stand on their own. That's why the online is locked behind it.

    @JoeAird1 @NintendoAmerica I'm not only saying it bc of smash. Nintendo online service on any game can be a pain. I had 0 issie Playing smash 4 online, no lag no nothing, and that online was free!. Now that we pay you for it its gotten worse

    Why isn’t there a taunt message in Ultimate that says “get better internet” or, “nintendo fix your damn netcode”

  • jasonventer
    Jason Venter (@jasonventer) reported

    So, @NintendoAmerica has today sent me five notifications (so far) that my NES Switch controller set has shipped, which either means I can look forward to five pairs arriving soon, or there is an annoying glitch in their notifications system. I hope it's the first thing.

  • SciMan314
    SciMan (@SciMan314) reported

    @Lythero Nevermind, I just watched a tear-down of the Switch Pro Controller again, the battery is literally the exact same one in your 3DS. Props to Nintendo for not re-inventing the wheel there. Because it's replaceable, I have no problem with you trying out your idea. Just be careful.
