Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • Runefaire Rune Faire 🎨 (@Runefaire) reported

    @SuperCatDad Yeah I’ve read they can fix stuff though obviously not really a good time atm. But the fact this is such a widespread problem is so bad, kind of disappointed in Nintendo

  • rachieexd Rachel West (@rachieexd) reported

    First world problem incoming — Not being able to afford WiFi each month and only using mobile data (cause Vodafone plans are sound) is quite difficult when it comes to buying and downloading Nintendo Switch games

  • NkaiSeth Seth Nkai Wilson (@NkaiSeth) reported

    Fix your ******* Joy-Con Drift @NintendoAmerica

  • AmiGUNZ AmiGUNZ (@AmiGUNZ) reported

    @FortniteStatus Please fix the Nintendo switch version, it's very choppy and the game runs very laggy when matched with PSN and XBL 👍

  • Hanza802 ʜᴀɴɴᴀʜ ♥︎ | 𝘧𝘢𝘯 𝘢𝘤𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘵 (@Hanza802) reported

    @uchster I don’t have the Nintendo service, but I’m definitely gonna have to buy it so I can get different flowers/fruits

  • d4ggerfish al 🗡️🐟 animal crossing!!! (@d4ggerfish) reported

    @PikiInoue OMG REALLY... AAAAA it would have to involve time travel :( which I don't wanna do that either... But once Nintendo fixes the adopting glitch I can probably force him out with an amiibo card when kabuki wants to move away for you!!!

  • cabbitchpatch Lynx. (@cabbitchpatch) reported

    @PurpockPartyBus @macy_thorne It’s also not available on the PS store so I’m not buying that Nintendo is having issues especially after talking to Christine for half an our on the subject

  • NukeNacho Nacho (@NukeNacho) reported

    @Riddlesmk I'm assuming Ultimate's netcode is more hardwired into Nintendo's servers due to how bad the service is sometimes based off location. While LAN fixes a majority of the problems it's not a good excuse for the netcode being bad in the first place lol.

  • _k4shi Cookie (쿠키) (@_k4shi) reported

    @animalcrossing If Nintendo could fix the bug that keeps new balloons from spawning after you shot down 300 I’d appreciate it.. I also want sky eggs :c

  • Cag3yy GAYg3yy (@Cag3yy) reported

    @Gogoris @toejamandearl And it's because Nintendo's online service is shit, they should pay you for using that garbage

  • cabbitchpatch Lynx. (@cabbitchpatch) reported

    Cooking mama update. I called 3518 PARTNERS LLC who owns Planet entertainment according to the official cooking mama website and spoke to Steve. Who told me Nintendo is having issues on their end getting the game up but it is supposed to be on the store today. So ya know. ****

  • eserpent1 E~Serpent (@eserpent1) reported

    I see too many people. Congratulating @NintendoAmerica. They make outright dumbass decisions constantly and are lagging behind the competition in the qualities that matter most.....speaking of lag its ******* 2020 and this company has shit internet on one of its best games

  • Cag3yy GAYg3yy (@Cag3yy) reported

    @Gogoris @toejamandearl Bruh they fixed that shit within the first year of launch, Nintendo knows about drift problems but refuses to fix it

  • TheMaractusMan Otylaxol (@TheMaractusMan) reported

    @Zero_Chilling @DG_777player @NintendoAmerica True, but better late than never i guess. The fire emblem series is rather badly represented in smash, so one would assume this decision was probably made to rectify the issue

  • beeliosis bee? 🦧 (@beeliosis) reported

    nintendo added byleth to smash and said “his moves with 8OOO years of lag are too good let’s give this man literally one of the worst projectiles in the game to compensate”

  • haikyuutie 🔥Juice Demon of Hell🔥 (@haikyuutie) reported

    @niceboy_420 I know. Fix this Nintendo!!!!

  • pluis3progLB Pluis3 (@pluis3progLB) reported

    @CentroLeaks I guess these leaks are the cause of the crash of nintendo server the last time

  • cabbitchpatch Lynx. (@cabbitchpatch) reported

    The wonderful woman I spoke with did everything she possibly could to assist me, even calling her manager and trying to reach out to the publisher. At this point it’s the publishers issue and Nintendo cannot do anything until the publisher fixes its shit.

  • Vivian_TranN viv ?? (@Vivian_TranN) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Send me new joycon controllers for my switch I’m tired of the issues mine are giving me!!!!!!!

  • FlyingRotors Cat using his paw as a pillow to sleep (@FlyingRotors) reported

    @leyawn Yeah I mean he can still decorate his house and the outside and plant trees and stuff so I told him I'd let him pick all the locations for everything like bridges. I think @nintendo should fix this though. leon use your fame to tell them to fix it

  • SAM_31007 Sam F. (@SAM_31007) reported

    I definitely think if Arms wasn't a Nintendo property, it would be in shovel-ware oblivion. It just feels so broken to play. I'll take Wii Boxing over this any day.

  • PAZ_E_AMOR_420 Israel Correa (@PAZ_E_AMOR_420) reported

    @pax Could you please help me with getting Nintendo to contact me about this issue. It's been a long time since you forwarded Nintendo my email and I still haven't been contacted by them.

  • NeptuneLimbo 你國當代著名小學生 (@NeptuneLimbo) reported

    @XboxP3 @NintendoAmerica @PlayStation @Xbox And help Nadella achieve his stupid win10 dream(I really hate win10!once update my system crash and everything gone!

  • lexmeme lexy ✨🍊✨ (@lexmeme) reported

    @nierautomata I saw online that you can submit a ticket and have Nintendo fix it for you if you for free if you bought your switch within the last 12 months

  • eholewis LuLu's bizzare adventure (@eholewis) reported

    i'll make a post about this soon, but since i'm going to be out of work for quite a while, i'm going to start offering services to fix joycon drift and shell swap modifications for nintendo switch. hmu if you're interested!

  • raytheonsentii 𝐫𝐚𝐲𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐢 ☕ commissions open! (@raytheonsentii) reported

    @solidstomak same!! 😩 I can't even relink my Nintendo account to the game anymore, it comes up with an error and I've tried everything. so i am starting over knowing I might lose progress in the future if I ever switch phones. rip.

  • Dusty_CarpetSSB Dusty_Carpet (@Dusty_CarpetSSB) reported

    @no_dupes Problems with Online are: 50% No one having good connection/Ethernet 20% How bad Ultimate's buffer is with WiFi delay 20% Nintendo actually having dumb netcode 10% Online's inherent and unavoidable problems

  • taekswooning Newton (@taekswooning) reported

    @blingerlulu ahhhh see that's the problem djkskfla I don't have a membership and I hate Nintendo for making that a thing :')

  • Serch_Castellum Serch Castellum (@Serch_Castellum) reported

  • KuarimLegends Kuarim 🎮 (@KuarimLegends) reported

    @DG_777player @dog_SwitchMK @NintendoAmerica Ok so you just dont like silent protagonists from modern jrpgs, wich is totaly fine then But that sounds like a subjectiv problem to me

  • gargledmesh Gargledmesh (@gargledmesh) reported

    @JW11NG When I got the drift in my left joycon I ended up buying the left joycon that hori sells with a d pad for $15. Not as good as sending your original joycon to Nintendo to get fixed (I think that service is on hold), but if you’re just playing in handheld it does a good enough job.

  • tekgeekster tekgeekster (@tekgeekster) reported

    @ModernVintageG When Nintendo says they'll fix an old game we're already used to, start worrying.

  • 598693445 Sherlock (@598693445) reported

    @NintendoUK You should really think about change your courier partner. Service provided by Hermes is really disappointed. My switch might be lost by them. My case is not alone. Just checked on Twitter. Lots of people buy switch from your website meet same question like me. Help

  • kamilynna Marissa Allen (@kamilynna) reported

    @NintendoAmerica i am having a serious bugged glitch on animal crossing new horizons and I don’t know how to report it but I’m losing hard earned in game money because of it. #help

  • cartoonFigma animePlushie (@cartoonFigma) reported

    @alexisparade Oh no, the glitch got you too! I think Nintendo is aware of it and working towards a patch

  • Radiatastories4 Radiatastories (@Radiatastories4) reported

    @DoesItPlay1 @0perationZer0 well flash memory cost more but it ould no be much of a issue if they kinda werent using a proprietary form o f it shame nintendo hasn't roll ou the oher 64gb cart much atm so they could lower cart cost.

  • DG_777player DG_777player (@DG_777player) reported

    @solidfox25 @Days_SSB @PopperCute @GPAngel_ @GiygaImpact @NintendoAmerica Well but they surely had time to post a lot of stuff meanwhile. Sorry but a simple announcement wouldn't be a big problem for them.

  • KantsImperative Kant's Categorical Imperative ⛿ (@KantsImperative) reported

    I just read instructions on how to fix a Nintendo Switch controller. I don't own a Nintendo Switch. Please help.

  • error217 Garret (@error217) reported

    Hey @NintendoAmerica. @Pokemon Sword/Shield will sometimes add friends to the block list without the user knowing. If someone is getting error code 2618-0501 when connecting to a specific person, they need to make sure that user isn't blocked in Y-Comm. Your techs didn't know.

  • KanTheLouisVDon El Patrón (@KanTheLouisVDon) reported

    Smokin broken windows, playin my Nintendo

  • hollielaskey hollielaskey@gmail.com (@hollielaskey) reported

    @NintendoUK ordered Nintendo switch lite next day delivery, still not arrived 2 days later, now they are out of stock on website. @Hermesparcels , unable to speak to someone on the phone, just fobbed off on live chat. Unacceptable customer service

  • SmolButrflyGorl Amber • Arle Mafia (@SmolButrflyGorl) reported

    @SharAndWatch bayo is a nintendo exclusive now which they seem to want to put all their current exclusives in smash + when she was added bayo 2 came out recently censorship allowed them to fix any problem there would’ve been

  • DG_777player DG_777player (@DG_777player) reported

    @PopperCute @Days_SSB @solidfox25 @GPAngel_ @JustinIsRlyBusy @GiygaImpact @NintendoAmerica But it did click to me but again, I shouldn't have to presume anything. I was complaining because Nintendo kept silent about the issue and even if 800 people told me that could be the issue I had no confirmation about that. Anyway, this is kind of pointless now.

  • Days_SSB Days (@Days_SSB) reported

    @DG_777player @PopperCute @solidfox25 @GPAngel_ @JustinIsRlyBusy @GiygaImpact @NintendoAmerica Your problem is completely asinine.

  • johnny5point6 Johnny5point6 (@johnny5point6) reported

    @animalcrossing @NintendoAmerica Hey Tom, I wish the letters would properly word wrap when you're writing. You should fix it, since it has been an issue for like... Eighteen years.

  • un_poco_homo La Cabezona (@un_poco_homo) reported

    Looked up my issue of not being able host or go to anyone’s island and it looks like a lot of people are getting the same error D: hopefully Nintendo fixes it soon

  • DG_777player DG_777player (@DG_777player) reported

    @PopperCute @Days_SSB @solidfox25 @GPAngel_ @JustinIsRlyBusy @GiygaImpact @NintendoAmerica Because I had, I don't have to presume what's happening, Nintendo should've said what the issue was even if it was obvious. My problem was their silence.

  • PopperCute HeckingCutePopper (@PopperCute) reported

    @DG_777player @Days_SSB @solidfox25 @GPAngel_ @JustinIsRlyBusy @GiygaImpact @NintendoAmerica while you can complain about that, sooner or later you should had easily realize that the virus could easily had been the issue, what with people constantly reminding you that it easily was, and yet you kept acting like you had the right to complain after being told that.

  • PKMark08 PirateKingMark (@PKMark08) reported

    @Swagonator420 I mean kindaaaa Black characters in smash would be dope but its not really a do or die necessity I guess the problem is there arent that many black nintendo characters or noticable black video game characters

  • elisaivers your girlfriends fav photographer (@elisaivers) reported

    I’m tired of wasting all my nook miles on tickets and getting my native fruit On every island. NINTENDO FIX IT #AnimalCrossingNewHorizions @NintendoAmerica #AnimalCrossingSwitch

  • alyanah22 Alyanah (@alyanah22) reported

    @pokemonklara i thought nintendo was replacing joy cons because the acknowledged there was a problem with drift , maybe you can get a replacement for free

  • PochaWocha Kathi (@PochaWocha) reported

    @1IdiotNamedAnna @Nintendo I have the same Problem since the new update...

  • DG_777player DG_777player (@DG_777player) reported

    @MeynethMonado @TheMaractusMan @NintendoAmerica Yes, it does, I don't deny that but I think that there are ways to contornate the issue (like Spirits/Mii Costumes). The weapon variety characters should've been added already instead of adding them now on top of 7 to 8 sword characters.

  • MeynethMonado James Williams (@MeynethMonado) reported

    @DG_777player @TheMaractusMan @NintendoAmerica As for overrepresenting, I can't agree. FE is a character driven story, so it only makes sense that a lot of characters got in. They need to add weapon variety (Byleth's a good first step, but Hector, dang it), but other than that, I don't see a problem with them adding more in.

  • Biptisms They/Them Might Be Giants 🍎 (@Biptisms) reported

    @YoskiDroski Oh noooo idk how to fix it... you can download the nintendo online app and use it as a keyboard
