This should be called "Splatnet 2", not Nintendo Switch Online. This is a great app if the only game you own for the Switch is Splatoon 2. It is lacking in variety of games, as there is only 1. There should be other multiplayer games supported, especially games where you create parties, as this would be very useful in that instance. Games like Rocket League, DOOM, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, and all popular online multiplayer games should be included. However, this may be part of the paid online service, which would make some sense. Is the case that more games will be included when the paid service launches?
It's really good! Very helpful to know the stages and gear. I'm the #1 fan of Splatoon, and this really helps makes it easier for me. Now all I have to do is wait for the octoling DLC! And also I rated 4 stars because the voice chat stops working when we enter a match, but it's ok.
Wasn't really sure what to think. If it was an app made for Splatoon 2 ( If so, just call it Splatnet 2 or something), than pretty good, but for the Switch in general? Not good. I mean, voice chat should be built into the Switch, for starters. Hopefully they'll fix all that with the release of the Switch services.
Reason for only one star is because the only game available online in this app is Splatoon 2. Why? Several other games on Switch with online capabilities, like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Not all have Splatoon 2. I am one that does not. If and when more games get added, then I will add more stars.
Come on, even Wii U had better online. Let us voice chat and message people on the Switch itself without this annoying companion app. Even the way you use it to voice chat sucks, you have to choose a specific game mode in Splatoon 2 just to be able to invite friends to voice chat, rather than being able to ring up any Switch friends at any time. Giving 2 stars because the integrated Splatnet is actually really good.
This app is such a piece of ****. Wish I could give it half a star Nintendo you just don't know how to put together something useful. I've had this app since the switch came out or since this app came out for the switch because it wasn't even available when the switch first came out. I love that when I joined a room with someone there was no way of me exiting out of the room literally I was stuck in a room with a person since I joined them which was months ago and you don't even have the option to leave the room and you know what's funny is that I uninstalled the app and even that didn't work because it said that I had can't be signed in on two devices even though it's the same phone I originally set up with!! but I'll just stick with Discord since that's a far superior app
Implemented bug fixes.
