Nintendo Switch Online Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@nibeIheims i didn’t know it was like. a general glitch i thought it was only with amiibos.. i tased w someone the other day and it messed up that plot for them. it’s happening a lot tho so nintendo should get on it pretty quick!!!
@zariefilm thats awful! Its really awful service from both ends if the party really. The hermes girl she was lovely on phone today, and she said nintendo have sent nothing
all my problems would be solved if i had a nintendo switch
Real quick **** Nintendo and/or Gamefreak for FORCING me to keep Pokémon Sword on my console’s SD card else I lose my progress because apparently PAYING FOR A SERVICE doesn’t mean I’ll get THE ******* SERVICE. Exclusion of Cloud Saves for 1st party Nintendo games is ******* dumb
Dude Nintendo actually cares a lot about Animal Crossing lol The game hasn’t even been out for a full month and its already gotten more than one update/patch to fix stuff. Im def about it cuz this game is great They address issues in AC 2x faster than they do with Smash LOL
just called nintendo so they will help transfer my account from my broken 2ds to my new 3ds 😭🤘🏼 i really need to replay fire emblem conquest, now i don’t really mind if rmo extend some more 💀
nintendo holy shit you have one console to focus on and you can't fix the issues it has even after years of it being out what are you even doing with your time
@NintendoAmerica @animalcrossing Please fix the cast master book miles it’s stuck at 20/50 and I can’t get these book miles!!!
@odetocorleone I can't use my Switch anymore because one of the joycons drifts after a couple of minutes and @NintendoUK want to charge me so they can fix their faulty hardware and I don't think I should have to pay for their crappy build issues.
Send me a Dodo code right now because I desparately want to check if I'm even able to connect to other players at this horrible internet. I want to know if the Nintendo Switch has issues with it or no issues with it. Please. I'm begging.
@ahiddenplace1 @NintendoAmerica Found out she only shows up from 5 am to 12 pm. So basically I gotta fix my sleep schedule if I wanna catch her :,)
Nintendo doesn't give us cloud save but took forever to fix the duping glitch ... one of them affected the entire player base the other one doesn't love that
i’m so mad nintendo online shouldn’t be a paid service like playing online with friends shouldn’t have to be paid for ://
If there were no pandemic, Zipper wouldn't have been (as big) a problem. He's working as intended, and I'm glad Nintendo could adjust the game in such an extreme circumstance, but I think all this is a really strong example of Animal Crossing's bonsai design being put forth.
@BogDwellerBee Oh goodness! Yeah I wanted you to know in case you hadn’t contacted Nintendo customer support. Supposedly this is a recurring issue
You guys all know I love Nintendo too. But the amount of wasted potential pisses me off. Don’t even get me started on the shit online service and servers. Though they do right a lot they also drop the ball A LOT. But hopefully they come through on that Fatal Frame (zero hope)
the Nintendo Switch shortage is the most first world problem to happen but I am SO OVER IT I JUST WANT TO PLAY ANIMAL CROSSING WITH EVERYONE !!!
@BigMacUltimate @DynamoSuper That's the problem with Rob, Mario spinoffs already suffer of bad character representation among the Mario cast, opening the doors to non-Mario characters would mean Nintendo is gonna put even less focus on the Mario characters, the characters you mentioned have smash already
@D3stiny_Sm4sher @PKFCx I mean. They did have problems from 2013-2016. I mean, they are struggling so bad, Nintendo gave them MP4.
@skyloftic i was having the same problem, idk if its the same outside of america but nintendo will fix it for you if u send in your joycon. but i just fixed it myself and was rlly easy if u trust yourself w/ a ebay kit and youtube videos.
@3wojis I hate having to download the rest of a Switch game, but a bigger problem is locking a required download to a specific Nintendo account. So, for example, if you buy the AC Rebel collection, Black Flag is on the cart, but the other game is a download code. So we can't share.
@NintendoAmerica The villager glitch is still not fixed, I had a villager who moved out yesterday on his own (no amiibo help), was adopted by someone, and still today his house says "I've moved out".
@NugAspect But there's a problem! The Nintendo will be like an ant D:
@NugAspect Nintendo’s Customer Service is actually really ******* good, I’d recommend doing that
@realmjork oh no this is happening to me too :((( but you can send them back to nintendo to repair for free!!! That's what I'm doing, but you might have to check if they're still providing this service in ur country as I'm in the UK !
@DrLavaYT Well it’s obvious why they changed it. Nintendo probably didn’t want any copyright issues to rise
blblbllblb finally !! I've never seen a Nintendo game get updated so frequently and address actual problems 🥺💘
@Kotaku I've never seen a Nintendo game get updated so frequently and address actual problems.
@GracieMariax @NintendoUK They are the worst delivery service....
@ConnorShawVA You can send it to Nintendo and they will fix it for free
So, this YouTuber that I watch had his Nintendo account hacked. He didn't know that Nintendo offered two-step verification. Some "hackers" in India were able to obtain his login information and use it to access his account to make hundreds of dollars in purchases. So, what...
The Nintendo service game experience is a weird one
Please fix Sydney's eyes ! @nintendo @animalcrossing
I thought "I don't think Nintendo would patch Animal Crossing for QoL changes" but there's been like 3 bug fix patches over the past 2 weeks or so
@Tweet_BKelly @Elca_Gaming @Nintendo Yet they have no issue it seems with all the Animal acrossing videos and images 🤔 almost as if ... they were selectively targeting.
@SteveStreza Oh shoot. That’s terrible timing. And boo on Nintendo for making it a problem in the first place.
@ACWorldBlog can nintendo fix the sakura recipes 😭 i really don't need 20 more egg recipes when i have them all
@EAHelp @NintendoUK @NintendoEurope @NintendoAmerica you might want to look into the fact EA has stopped all help for fifa 20 on the switch. We havnt had matchmaking for over 2 days now with no comment or attempt to help. The problem is affect the majority of players according to forums
@Nayuleska They do seem less to me, which is annoying, don't know if nintendo intended that or just accidentally broke it. Hope they fix it, and fast.
Dude, Nintendo needs to fix this durability glitch where tools break after two uses after coming back from sleep mode.
well for the most part as I've said it was OK, but the problems were in the controls, I know that previous Turok games also had the same problems, but Turok 3 was way worse. it felt like this game should got released in other platform rather than a Nintendo.
from Nottinghamshire, England
@paul_pmz After much online reading looks to be a day one error. At some point there will be free replacements again via Nintendo. Until then it's replacement time.
@TheRelaxingEnd @mygamesir I play on Nintendo Switch, its very hard to play with broken joy cons :(
honestly think all my problems would be solved if I could get a Nintendo Switch with Animal Crossing, but everywhere’s sold out, just wanna catch fish and meet animal friends 😢
@KiennaS Unfortunately Nintendo continues to lag way behind Microsoft and Sony on gaming accessibility. Not sure why.
Nintendo listened to us and updated the game to 1.1.4 so there are less Easter balloons. But if the ratio of regular balloons is the same, then this update is nonsense. The problem we have is we aren't getting cherry-blosson recipes due to the lack of regular ballons.
@The_G_91 @SenorPug26 @jmaster49 @Getupkid1284 @_StylesZX2 that means that wifi is not the problem here. wifi should never go down to such low speeds unless you're stealing wifi from your neighbors, so i don't understand people's hatred for people using wifi on their nintendo switch. people need to realize the game netcode is at fault.
@tide_goes_in Sadly no report system, i did check with nintendo customer service and that kind of behavior is bannable, but like i said, no report system in ARMS
@AskSmythsToys any idea when the people who pre-ordered a neon Nintendo switch will be getting one. I understand it’s a supplier issue but just thought I’d ask :)
@hanna_kime @NintendoAmerica @animalcrossing Please fix this asap!!!
Nintendo seems to have fixed the connection problems. Now I can finally visit islands again. 😤 (and upload screenshots!)
I really appreciate how aggressive Nintendo has been patching this game, including fixes to issues players want addressed now. Compare that to Game Freak which has patched Pokemon a grand total of two times since launch, fixing almost no issues. Just DLC prep to sell you stuff.
@MojangSupport hi my son has minecraft for Nintendo switch , it was shutting down with an error message we thought it was the game card so bought it again on the eshop and the same is happening after the mojang screen it loads and the shuts down without showing the sign in screen
make sure to always find out beforehand if someone has used an Amiibo to get rid of the villager. If you have a villager in boxes due to an Amiibo card DO NOT TRADE/SELL THEM TO ANYONE or you’re putting that person at risk of losing their game data!!! Fix this @NintendoUK !!
@ACPocketNews What need ls to be fixed is the bamboo glitch. No matter how you space out your own home grown bamboo stalks, they only produce once and then no more after that. No one seems to be looking into this glitch and fixing it!!! #AnimalCrossingNewHorizons #Bamboo #Glitch #Nintendo
I have done some dum stuff. The gifting service used Nintendo V-bucks AS you know. But Even tho They are glizhed They are still illegal and we are tecnacly scamming epic. I just want to forget this. Remember to NEVER buy V-bucks from twitter. It is illegal and your parents..
im so mad bc i cant even cancel the order lol it says itll arrive today but its been saying that for 4 days now & the tracking is broken like id just cancel it and buy it in the nintendo eshop but i Cant hbdnebehdb
also technical issue make sure ur NAT type is A because mine won’t budge from D and Nintendo is picky about it (u can check NAT types on ur switch settings)
bruh seriously though, stop sending your requests for whatever your big new Nintendo idea is to customer service. those contacts were unbearably annoying to shift through and the agents you're talking to barely have any more input or knowledge on what Nintendo is doing next.
nintendo please fix this glitch... i had to test to see if he actually comes out in the day by time traveling but he's legit stuck there.
