Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • nami_kiyoshi Nurse Soot Sprite (she/her) (@nami_kiyoshi) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Why is the Island transfer tool broken? It only allows selecting the profile to open the software half of the time. Maybe y’all should have made it work like any other game in respect to cloud saves.

  • 8_bit_relic 8-bit-Relic (@8_bit_relic) reported

    Damn, I waited to long Nintendo doesn't do Wii U repairs anymore. That damn screen of the pad is black which destroys the whole gimmick 9f the Wii U :-( I don't like to have broken systems in the house as I usual look after my stuff

  • RenovatioMors Renovatio Mors (@RenovatioMors) reported

    @XanozIchimonji It's crazy because others use their web services so Nintendo's online was facing issues because of this as well because they use Amazon web servers.

  • Mark_LaCroix Mark LaCroix 💾 (@Mark_LaCroix) reported

    @MADiSON_Game You shouldn't have to legally change your LLC (lots of companies have identical names), because it isn't an issue of intellectual property, it's an issue of trademark. You just need to do is "trade" under a different "mark," which Steam, Nintendo, etc. allow you to do easily.

  • PGtheVRguy PGTHλVRGUY (@PGtheVRguy) reported

    Can't login to my Nintendo account. ****.

  • Azure_Neko_Alex Azure Alex 🔞🇦🇷 -COMISSIONS OPEN- (@Azure_Neko_Alex) reported

    @ZombieRay10 Don't worry, better Let it out, besides i understand you, had a problem with the Nintendo failing (no surprize) so yeah same feeling uwu

  • vampetterose Emily (@vampetterose) reported

    @mutualtommy Basically I've seen people trying to get Nintendo to see they post and get them in trouble when Nintendo definitely don't care. So many people make products based on Nintendo so why would they care. The company is one of the biggest and have way more things to focus on

  • meemeememes haha (@meemeememes) reported

    @NintendoAmerica I’ve reset my email 6 times… and the login still isn’t working… what should I do? I’m upgrading to a OLED and I know I will need to login… pls help!!!

  • OtakuHunt3r OtakuHunter (@OtakuHunt3r) reported

    @SolidSnake2042 @foxygames_uk PlayStation & Nintendo doesn’t find a problem with that and is open about. Phill on the other hand lies through his teeth but when called out xbots don’t see the issue

  • LLCoolRunnings Josh Grinchols 🎄👎🏻 (@LLCoolRunnings) reported

    They could easily monetize it and take advantage of impulsive consumers (like me) if they made some games available on the service for only a limited time. Seems like a no brainer, some one hire me at Nintendo. I have more cool ideas like this.

  • PVlazqz PackoVlazqz (@PVlazqz) reported

    @NintendoAmerica i dont know why i cant buy a game im trying to use my nintendo coins and paying the rest of the amount whit my credit card since yesterday and always appear an error on the screen saying me to contact whit my bank whyyy !?

  • FF2389 Kurono (Josh) (@FF2389) reported

    @Nick13000 @NintyPrime It's literally not Nintendo's fault. Whatever service it and a bunch of other websites are connected to are/were down today.

  • yooniescrossing yoonie ۵ || embroidery commissions open📌 (@yooniescrossing) reported

    why I don't even really try selling embroidery in my own country? showing my embroidery on any group with people from where I live gets most of the comments being like: but it's illegal. someone gonna report you to nintendo. you're gonna get in trouble for this. you can't do it.

  • RabidSushiTTV RabidSushi | Twitch Partner (@RabidSushiTTV) reported

    @NintendoAmerica You seemed to of misplaced the Nintendo #Switch you meant to give me, if you could just correct that issue that would be grreeeeatttt.

  • JohnBasics John The Hidden Beast (@JohnBasics) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Can you make The Ruined King a little more playable... I beat it but it crashed multiple times, lag in fights and an important cutscene after fighting GP is bugged and completely green and then pure white as the dialog plays

  • Viccaro2 Viccaro (@Viccaro2) reported

    @MakinaKid This is why you hear about Nintendo nuking people for zelda art so much, or the constant issues groups like TeamFourStar had with abridging anime series

  • firstaidspray rei (@firstaidspray) reported

    @clebbyboy Japanese companies don't need or care about free advertising. Nintendo, SEGA, and even Sony has done the same thing. They want total control of their IP. It's similar to how Apple doesn't want you to fix their iPhones and that you have to take them to certified repair shops.

  • happyboydanny Danny T. (@happyboydanny) reported

    Nintendo Online was down for a whopping 13 hours. Most likely linked to the larger #AmazonWebServices issues. #NintendoSwitchOnline #internetshutdown @NintendoAUNZ

  • NOleg_finadvice ICPunk#6413 (@NOleg_finadvice) reported

    @crypto_is_good people should not be able to impersonate a nintendo product and profit from it could call it a simulator and avoid all this trouble, but we cannot call the game the actual thing.

  • Puncheur_music Puncheur (@Puncheur_music) reported

    @LucasCa76586227 @MsVeezy_baybee @FortniteStatus So if you have your account on multiple Switches, only one Switch will be your primary Switch. On this Switch there is no need to check whether the software can be played, meaning no need to connect to Nintendo's servers. At least this was the problem in my case.

  • ONestPerception Honest Perception (@ONestPerception) reported

    @Walmart you guys need to fix your 3rd party sellers. It's out of control and fire a company as big as you, it doesn't seem like you care that you are losing money. EX: Nintendo switch w/ Mario kart 8, bought it for $299, a week later I'm told that it's delayed w/no date.

  • LeBanMn lemn (@LeBanMn) reported

    @ToonLinkIrl @YorozuyaAlexis “Skill issue” I’m sorry Nintendo sucks

  • DatElectricLoaf The Rarest Amphybre (@DatElectricLoaf) reported

    Looks like Nintendo's servers are back online now. Time to play Borderlands 2 on my Switch. The outage didn't last long at least.

  • ShroOnTwitch Shrodinger (@ShroOnTwitch) reported

    @vergolophus It has always been extremely remarkable to me just how poor Nintendo's Online service has been over the years

  • vergolophus VERGO 💥 🧠 💥 Psynauts 2 for GOTY2021 (@vergolophus) reported

    Nintendo's Online service will be down because of the Amazone outage for a while, huh.

  • Icy_Wings Icy Wings (@Icy_Wings) reported

    @eszzz Did you see Nintendo's last online service ratio?

  • teharrisonfox55 Thomas E Harrison (@teharrisonfox55) reported

    @Destructo_Dan @Ubisoft Sonic, Crash, Spyro, Banjo, Rayman. Why do so many beloved mascots have to suffer through greed, stupidity, arrogance and more. Even Mario and Link has suffered through Nintendo's arrogance

  • Dj_Slumdog01 DJslumdog (@Dj_Slumdog01) reported

    @Spiderman209986 Nintendo will never fix their online service at this rate

  • CaptainApolix Nick (@CaptainApolix) reported

    Is Nintendo link with AWS? I can’t get online since the outage?

  • Tattoo_VO 🎙Tattoo VO: Audio Artwork by Dee Alvis (@Tattoo_VO) reported

    @grhufnagl See, that's why I had a subscription to magazines like Nintendo Power instead. 1 issue answered more of my questions, cost me about as much per issue as a 1 minute call to those numbers and I wouldn't get in trouble for running up my parent's phone bill
