Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • No_Limit_Gamer Lord Jamar (@No_Limit_Gamer) reported

    @Simpson_761 @haveyouseen01 And allot of them say the service sucks lol and it’s not talked about at all cause Nintendo does the bare minimum and their fans are completely loyal the offerings and effort are staggeringly different glad nintendo is doing well but it’s nothing compared to what GP offers.

  • Sachieehkun Sachielkun ( Comissions Closed for now :P ) (@Sachieehkun) reported

    One thing i hate with all my soul is when i dislike what a company like Riot or Nintendo does and an smart *** just says : They are companies they just want to make money. Like dude i know all problems in the world come from companies trying to make money i knooooow

  • ChimakokoDaniel The Gaming Board (@ChimakokoDaniel) reported

    @MojangSupport I was trying to upload a skin. I own the game on my nintendo switch but it says "You don't own the game" Can you fix that please?

  • Lezuitiumtro Zeni (@Lezuitiumtro) reported

    @burantsu nintendo kart sounds like it could be hype, i’d love to play as like pyra or some **** Only problem i see wrong with it is the name

  • Mouri133 S (@Mouri133) reported

    I hope that in Nintendo Kart or Mario Kart 9 they solve the problem of the lag and the issues in some online races. That would be really good if they do that

  • MartinXBones MartinXBones Is Not Ready For 2022 (@MartinXBones) reported

    @CyanideEmber @tha_rami I don’t think CoD, Fortnite, Battlefield, any Nintendo game, etc, are using the same engines And considering how broken some of these games are with their own engines, and how these studios don’t care about function in their own games, trying to do this will be a mess

  • arroutado2 arroutado (@arroutado2) reported

    @Wunderdasrvicbl @NintendoUK Too much input lag on switch, better play it on PC

  • Facts_About_BK Facts about Banjo-Kazooie. (@Facts_About_BK) reported

    @ryupool041 There was not enough memory in the original Nintendo 64 release of the game. Initially the notes were not supposed to reset. Tooie corrected this issue.

  • vDeadbolt Deadbolt (@vDeadbolt) reported

    I love how people are starting to realize how ridiculous and toxic the Smash speculation community really is. People don't want Mario Kart to become a Nintendo crossover anymore cause it will start a chain of events where we get Master Chief riding a go-kart with Crash Bandicoot

  • KatarashiKami CLN 🎆 22/02/2022 (@KatarashiKami) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Fix your online first.

  • oQuaint2 oQuaint (@oQuaint2) reported

    @BIGDUCKHUNTFAN1 @NintendoAmerica @NintendoCanada Wtf Ive gotten 2 procons and both have gone literal years without the skightest issue anywhere

  • frankprovo Frank Provo, CPA (@frankprovo) reported

    The @krikzz GBA everdrive and @analogue Pocket beef makes me want to shake some people. krikzz's products work fine on every GBA, GBA SP, and SP-101 I own (legit Nintendo). If they don't work in an Analogue Pocket (3rd party), the fix isn't on him. Round 2 Pockets need the fix.

  • BellianJames uɐıןןǝq sǝɯɐɾ  (@BellianJames) reported

    @Rengle820 IMO it will end up the way of Xbox avatars, Nintendo Mii, etc. the style won’t be suitable for most games, so only casual games will use them, or the API is more trouble than its worth and most studios simply won’t support them. Or maybe too much competition will defeat the point

  • Blun_Z Zee (@Blun_Z) reported

    @UltimaShadowX how is this an issue when there is already an entire big blue race track where I can play as link in MK8? people loved that **** nintendo kart sounds so sick I didnt know people thought this was bad Im dying

  • JaredTheBC Jared (17) FRONTIERS HYPE (@JaredTheBC) reported

    @UltimaShadowX Most Nintendo Kart critisms are things the series already faced before, it really just feels like people are putting a "no fun allowed" sign in front of people wanting it to happen

  • ChileanGamerPPA ChileanPleasePlay 🇨🇱 (@ChileanGamerPPA) reported

    @sonic_hedgehog … like EA (Any Star wars game that is not for mobile), Activision (any crash bandicoot game that was released since 2019), Ubisoft (Monopoly Plus), Nintendo (any WarioWare game released since 2018), etc. Meanwhile companies like SEGA and The Pokémon Company are… [continue]

  • ZeroBlaze_ Jotaro Kujo, D.D.S. (@ZeroBlaze_) reported

    Something I truly hate about Sword and Shield is the lack of a VS recorder There are so many online ranked battles I've had that I can't summarize in the last 30 seconds. Or maybe that's partially a Nintendo Switch issue too.

  • JakeyXY ✨JakeyXY✨ | ℝ𝕠𝕒𝕕•𝕋𝕠•𝟙𝕜 (@JakeyXY) reported

    @Mouri133 I wish! Nintendo and lag are basically synonymous though😢

  • azurezeed azurezeed (@azurezeed) reported

    @GameXplain if only they listened to their fans and allowed cross save or just importing switch save file (yes I know it may be an issue with Nintendo's legal agreement and not because they can't technically do it, but still)

  • MattIanta Matty (@MattIanta) reported

    I’m trying to settle nerves by watching Nintendo restoration vids… it is not working.

  • TheTowerBard Jimmy Mac The Third (@TheTowerBard) reported

    @EvolvedAura For me the issue isn’t what the buttons are labeled as, the issue is that Nintendo uses the button on the right as the menu select button and everyone else uses the button on the bottom. I hate it with every ounce of my being.

  • transparencyboo Transparency (@transparencyboo) reported

    Alright, so I just read the Nintendo Life article about Balan Wonderworld, and if that's considered intense controversy I guess we're in deep trouble.

  • donfazelasheem lasheem (@donfazelasheem) reported

    @IRON_FIST_152 If Nintendo said no to GamePass what makes them think Sony would put their service on PlayStation devices. lol

  • Beefareeno Scott (@Beefareeno) reported

    @ducksindisguise The Mario 2 Nintendo Power issue looks weird.

  • kujikawaii 🍡 イーサン 🍡 C0mms open! (@kujikawaii) reported

    reasons I want MK9 to have more nintendo/nintendo adjacent characters and courses: -track made up of the broken falling clock tower pieces from bayonetta instead of "desert track, but with mario enemies" for the 5th time that's all

  • Tenne_Qinglong Tenne🎐⛈ (@Tenne_Qinglong) reported

    @ayuttv @mamikoch @Ayako_VT I just realized Merryweather has a Nintendo Switch-chan that even wears Joycons as hair clips and he hasn't gotten in any sort of trouble. I'm confident that this design would've been fine.

  • ChimakokoDaniel The Gaming Board (@ChimakokoDaniel) reported

    @MojangSupport I have another problem where my friend can't join my world. Is it because I'm on nintendo and he is on XBOX?

  • eliksnirights masha (adept) 🦋 (@eliksnirights) reported

    I have no idea how many hours I logged on games on the 360 and the DS back in the day because I lost the login info for that account and because nintendo handhelds never logged hours

  • __Some_Kid_ Some kid (@__Some_Kid_) reported

    @burantsu This the same guy from XC2 anni, man never has a good take. Also, the only issue I see with Nintendo kart is that the name isn’t as catchy

  • LobsterPlays WigglingPiranha (@LobsterPlays) reported

    People are getting mad that "Mario Kart" is becoming closer to "Nintendo Kart"...and I'm just sitting here, remembering that Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong were more Rare's characters than Nintendo's by the time of the N64 and no one gave a damn. People got some weird problems.
