Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

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

    @NintendoAmerica Please fix the washed out colors

  • BowtieShyGuy Shy Guy with a Bowtie (@BowtieShyGuy) reported

    @SolidNopeRope @antdude92 Imho the art style of the DS games was quite ugly. I'd rather prefer the SNES remake. Also the NES games aren't free. If you don't subscribe or if Nintendo turns off the service for Switch they are gone. (1/2)

  • link5469 darkwinlord (@link5469) reported

    @caroljallen For some reason No More Heroes is rated 16+ but no more heroes 2 desperate struggle is rated 18+. Anyway there is an odd glitch were the bike in no more heroes 2 will not work with nintendo switch a pro controller.

    I am not one to complain normally about issues like this but with what Nintendo did recently with Pkmn Lets Go (forced motion controls), and now these PS5 restrictions, this is getting a little annoying. Especially when they claim to be trying to address accessibility concerns...

  • sammysamira_ samira (@sammysamira_) reported

    Do I think a Nintendo will solve all of my problems? Yes, yes it will

  • PolincrtChen КГБ Agent Chen 🇭🇰 (@PolincrtChen) reported

    @nichegamer Sony single-handedly made me get off my *** and build a gaming computer, all thanks to the focus on linear games, subscription service, and censorship. I'll still buy Nintendo consoles though

  • Spindash54 Spindash (Greg) (@Spindash54) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Can we do something about the darkness of the screen? NES games in the Online App aren’t this dark. We know you’re using the Wii U emulator, which is considerably weak. Please make this fix.

  • Samz81123702 Samz (@Samz81123702) reported

    @NintendoUK Hey can you fix the Digital Manual? it's missing vital information like the character biographies and weapon stats.

  • Pasta_Taco Antonio!!! (@Pasta_Taco) reported

    @TAHK0 I am very sad you deleted that tweet. It was a good tweet. I'm currently holding a memorial service for it in my apartment. I've even said a few nice things about it. Welp, time to play some Fire Bros. on the Nintendo Virtual Wii.

  • RomanN64 Roman (@RomanN64) reported

    @Puffstalk_Paul @NintendoAmerica Spamming social media accounts worked for the Evo 2013 situation. Besides, how do you know I haven't already called customer service as well? Even if it doesn't do anything, it takes me no time or effort to make some reply tweets. If it bothers you so much, use the mute function.

  • Puffstalk_Paul Paul the Pikmin Fan (Pikmin 3 Deluxe) (@Puffstalk_Paul) reported

    @RomanN64 @NintendoAmerica Look, Nintendo shutting down the Big House event was terrible, we get it. But complaining to a corporate Twitter account isn't fixing ****. If you want to do something about this call costumer service and complain there. Doug Bowser ain't looking at your FreeSmash tweets.

  • LuigiBlood LuigiBlood (@LuigiBlood) reported

    By the way, if you don't like the washed out colors of Fire Emblem: Complain loudly about it! Make Nintendo know about it, if they fixed 3D All-Stars surely a mundane color change shouldn't be a problem.

  • JinTran18 Jin Tran (@JinTran18) reported

    @RetroGameDays36 @blukirbe @NintendoAmerica Aw did someone say something you didn't like on the internet? You should cry and throw a hissy fit. That'll solve the problem.

  • AzurXGamesYT Nick Siehr (@AzurXGamesYT) reported

    @FortniteStatus Hey Fortnite, if you do listen to the community, add mythics and stuff to creative, I hella wanna mess around with them, cars? That to, just update stuff on creative. O yea can you also fix nintendo switch girl hair? Harley's Quinn, payback and others look really stupid.

  • KingPwndaRBX KingPwnda (@KingPwndaRBX) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Nintendo PLSSS fix this. I don't like the idea of have 1 Animal Crossing New Horizons island per switch. Not even account. People who have a sibling, like me, fight a lot about it. He is the owner of the island and doesnt allow me to do anything. pls fix it @animalcrossing

  • DinkyKongFacts Dinky Kong Facts (@DinkyKongFacts) reported

    Fact #5: Dinky’s popularity gave Nintendo the money to buy out Disney. Dinky Plus, a streaming service for Nintendo and Disney properties, released soon after this.

  • PHeartbeatGame Project Heartbeat (@PHeartbeatGame) reported

    @annieartshop That's not the only problem, I develop the game as a single lone developer, so porting to a new platform would be a lot of effort. You can upload songs to the Steam workshop, but nintendo has nothing to do with that, I don't think a console port will happen beyond xbox.

  • GJSP_Kdash Kdash (@GJSP_Kdash) reported

    @khsensei3 @NintendoAmerica anyone can help this man out with this issue?

  • DarkJera DarkJera (@DarkJera) reported

    @ITalkFortnite Maybe they'll add exclusive to their Nintendo Online Service just as PS and XBOX?

  • DatHeetJoella Joëlla 💚💙✍ (@DatHeetJoella) reported

    @heyfuturefeesh I hope so too. I heard nintendo is deleting all the negative reviews that mention this issue tho so maybe that means they're working on it? I'm trying not to be too hopeful tho lmao

  • hausofRJ RJ (@hausofRJ) reported

    @lost_mnemosyne Same- my regular joy cons that I barely use have major drifting issues. Sucks that Nintendo’s “pro” controllers have issues too.

  • PyroMDyet Matt Hillier. Pyrø idiot/that/it (@PyroMDyet) reported

    @MunkiePlays I see like animé when Sony censor games that Nintendo feel no need to change you have a problem, when Sony turns it's back on it's homeland red flags start waving enjoy your console recording you without permission too

  • milkjakejung Jacob Jung (@milkjakejung) reported from Brentwood, Tennessee

    Yo @NintendoAmerica make Super Metroid available on the older 3ds. If they can run OoT, it isn’t a hardware issue. Figure it out or I’ll keep playing it illegally online, and I don’t want to pay $300 for a switch JUST for frickin Super Metroid. Wait that’s only for the UK, right?

  • lloyd_omar Omar Lloyd (@lloyd_omar) reported

    @3rl_g @Namisina4 @HugS86 Nope, still wrong. Not only were there people in the Melee scene too, Nintendo never cared about them even decades ago. And they've shut down fan projects with other IPs like Metroid and Pokemon, so it's not a Melee exclusive problem.

  • EugenioSaldana Cielo Rojo (@EugenioSaldana) reported

    Smokin' broken Windows playing my Nintendo

  • Noahs_Arkanoid Noah's Arkanoid (@Noahs_Arkanoid) reported

    @PearlteaRizzy Seems to me that there's a disconnect between Nintendo's lawyers and their developers/programmers. At least, that's how I can rationalize Nintendo making this statement while using emulators for the 3D All-Stars bundle.

  • LorenzoSleestak Lorenzo Sleestak ☦ (@LorenzoSleestak) reported

    @redlianak I remember that Nintendo used to require content creators to be part of their Nintendo Creators Program in order to stream their games. I would think that would have been a bigger issue but, then again, there was a huge backlash against it and Nintendo discontinued it.

  • m8rshall chris marshall (@m8rshall) reported

    Hi @NintendoUK - I had my joy-cons returned a week or so ago from repair due to drifting, and im still suffering from the same issue - is there any anything i can do, or do i just need to send them back in for repair a second time? Thanks

  • YTangeldevil21 Angeldevil21 (@YTangeldevil21) reported

    @NintendoAmerica I can’t relax because of school and drifts problem
