Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • charlie_J86 Charles J Barbour (@charlie_J86) reported

    @So_Ethereal @shanejblair @Pokemon the Expansion pass for these games is just an activation key. the actual DLCs were added to them via free updates. Several exploits exist on ofw to get into the areas without problems. I doubt nintendo has actually included the updates on card. your still going to need sd space

  • cmnewline cm-new Happy (@cmnewline) reported

    @NintendoAmerica If someone also has trouble using the touch screen in Mario Galaxy, the joycons pushes something out of the case, which can be easily controlled by tilting the console to switch to wireless mode @NintendoAmerica please insert as feature

  • SuperNin10Bros SuperNin10Bros 🧀 (@SuperNin10Bros) reported

    The salt about the Nintendo Switch Online Cloud Backup service started up because I realized I need to finish Pokemon Sword and I'd love to do that on my Switch Lite, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... (because Nintendo) #PokemonSwordShieldEX

  • BloopyBlooo Bloop (@BloopyBlooo) reported

    @Anahita_Jess oh yeah absolutely. we all (me included) played the crap out of it, but i’m sure nintendo didn’t anticipate a whole pandemic so i’m sure they’re all trying to figure out a way to fix the slump. i think the pumpkin growing might help with that

  • Romey_Yo Romey (@Romey_Yo) reported

    @SweetPeachGames Ports?! No. Have GBA as part of Nintendo Switch Online service makes more sense.

  • Screvvy 『らせん』 𝙎𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙬𝙮 (@Screvvy) reported

    @Fracktail Nintendo heard the Ult ones had deadzone issues so they really just discontinued them instead lmoa

  • its_dryx DRYX (@its_dryx) reported

    The Mario 3D All Stars port is not worth it. Nintendo should have fixed the issues with the original games, especially some of the Sunshine levels (pinball...).

  • dillzilla99 dillzilla99 (@dillzilla99) reported

    @TheMasonTweeter @PopStarRoxie @NintendoAmerica Sunshine did support widescreen, the problem was that north american gamecubes did not.

  • ClauWowPaw 𝙲𝚕𝚊𝚞𝚍𝚒𝚊𝚆𝚘𝚠𝙿𝚊𝚠 🌿🌼 ᴀᴄɴʜ (@ClauWowPaw) reported

    @Cptn_Alex I could be wrong, but I’ve seen a lot fan art. My profile picture is after all something like that. However, the problem might be that you are pretty much reselling their actual products? Nintendo is hard to deal with. Youtubers are having issues with them too.

  • markl1109 Mark Leveillee (@markl1109) reported

    @pepsiweed @jaret_martens @LimitedRunJosh True but their is no guarantees that they will always keep the service running...if it becomes unprofitable they could cut their losses and shut down the servers like Nintendo did for the Wii...hopefully they won't but I'll hang on to my physical copies as long as I can

  • Springtrap211th Diago (@Springtrap211th) reported

    @watsonameliaEN I think I can help you with your nintendo switch overheating problems

  • TheSonicJoey2 TheSonicJoey (@TheSonicJoey2) reported

    So there's a chance that either my Nintendo Switch is broken, or my charger is broken. (or both?)

  • andyhayhurst Andy Hayhurst (@andyhayhurst) reported

    @Tahirh121 @NintendoUK @Nintendouk same problem here too!

  • markl1109 Mark Leveillee (@markl1109) reported

    @pepsiweed @jaret_martens @LimitedRunJosh The entire Wii digital library...Nintendo shut down the service 1/30/19...they gave you 5 years after the console production stopped...those are real games

  • CapnJackalton Captain Jackalton (@CapnJackalton) reported

    Welp apparently my Switch has irreparable water damage according to the Nintendo repair team, I have no idea how, so they're just sending it back broken, real ******* cool of you 🙃

  • Futterish Mike Futter (@Futterish) reported

    @MikeDiver No, it was a spiritual successor that was essentially a remake using identical settings. It was clear that Dyack was trying to skirt some Nintendo-related legal issues.

  • sdwarcop stephen warcop (@sdwarcop) reported

    @FauxxAegis You mean add them as DLC back then instead of waiting for Ultimate? There is a problem with that. Back then, Sakurai was who selected the fighters to work on, Nintendo didn't really had the control as they did right now.

  • kevin_004 Kev_PORT VITA GAMES TO SWITCH🎮🛡️⚔️ (@kevin_004) reported

    There are days when I think about my lost Pokemon Pearl cartridge, and my broken Nintendo DS I sold off. Now I'm regretting not having a DS so I can replay Pokemon Pearl. Also, I worry about my GBA, really need to find a repair guy for it.

  • rad_hbu Hayleigh (@rad_hbu) reported

    @scuffler916 @SuperiorArtemis @NintendoAmerica I got ten amiibo nfc chips for like $15 on Etsy, people make them super cheaply and I’ve never had any issues with them :)

  • TheSlySoul 👻👻👻 (@TheSlySoul) reported

    I would defend physical games more if they did not ship in broken, buggy form. Only Nintendo physical is worth a ****.

  • resendes_f Lino F Resendes (@resendes_f) reported

    @Hikariyuki20 @LimitedRunJosh Sony or Microsoft. Nintendo wont be here forever dont forget we had 1983 gaming crash once it will happen again then disk or digital wont work

  • _FoxMcCloud_ Fox (@_FoxMcCloud_) reported

    @Pokemon @NintendoAmerica How about a fix for the render/viewing distance and the animations for moves and pokemons

  • esmBot_ esmBot (@esmBot_) reported

    Floatzel: nintendo switch broken in half Floatzel: why is he selling merch for a demo...

  • VerZ_Gamer VerZgin (@VerZ_Gamer) reported

    I have this issue where whenever I bonk on a jump a demon appears next to me and he only speaks in ancient incantations please patch this nintendo I cant take much more

  • LazyDudeDanny Chicken Danny (@LazyDudeDanny) reported

    @jordiethecookie The hardware wasn’t the issue, it was how they used it. From what I remember the Wii U Sonic Boom game was originally going to be multiplatform but because of their deal with Nintendo they were forced to make another Wii U exclusive. That basically killed it.

  • random_carl carl://tweets (@random_carl) reported

    @tuyoki last I heard Nintendo will replace the joycon happily if it breaks due to the pretty common drifting issue.

  • SpyKid128 SpyKid (@SpyKid128) reported

    @marcan_tiger Most nintendo games do, but Animal Crossing is an exception, there IS a cloud service, but needs certain strict conditions, for a player to use it. A friend of my friend had to get a new console, and Nintendo wouldn't let him retrieve his data, because of a condition. Worrisome.

  • GendoWasRight Sydney Butler (@GendoWasRight) reported

    @GazMac77 The original Playstation was a phenomenon here. It launched shortly after we became a democracy and the embargoes were lifted. So it's like Nintendo in the US after the video game crash. Playstation is video games in many minds I'd say.

  • Crash49676428 Crash (@Crash49676428) reported

    @ArtBuffalo_ @CrashBandicoot @QuavoStuntin Crash: Hey plumber boy mustache man your worst nightmare has returned pack up your stuff I'm taking over Nintendo, by the way I'm still #1 on the PlayStation now i off to find bill gates I'm also taking over xbox to. Nintendo security: Hey what are you doing. Crash: taking over

  • skipai Skipai Otter (@skipai) reported

    @Lucalbio Shame Nintendo won't actually remaster it properly than emulate it as they could fix that camera issue and other problems that still reside in the game.
