Did anyone have connectivity issues? Curious to see if people were unable to play or did Nintendo impossibly overcome 1st day server issues that plague every other online game.


There was only one time where the result screen took a few mins to load (the one before the cat shows up and waves the flag. 

Other than that, the game's online was flawless.

^ yep like everyone says, the rollers are op! While for me the sniper is the weakest. Its too hard to cover the map with it, and the aiming is really hard.

And YES! The game was AMAZING! It took me like around 3-4 matches to get used to the motion controls, but in the end it was really smooth. Cant wait to try all the new weapons once the game is out.

And see you guys in 9hours! + I think Purple is so far my fave colour here!

I don't know about OP, since i killed many of them.

But for claiming the ground they are incredible indeed, not only have a big AoE, but they are faster too. That said, more than 2 on the same team don't seem to work that well.


Yeah, i had like max 3 on my team and we lost. 1 is really enough to cover at the start, and like backdoor near the end.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

I agree roller was fairly easy to defeat. Just squid away shoot em down. I had one round I was 9 and 0 was very awesome. Got a quad kill when 3 members launched to 1 guy and my nade took em all out lol

And as others said, I experienced no lag at all. 



My first impression: Gyro sucks. I'm using dual analog. No Pro Controller support = no buy. The second screen is literally useless. Detrimental, even. There were connection issues, but that's due to the traffic, which will not be there when people aren't all playing at the same hour.

The game was fun, but with it being an hour slice, it couldn't possibly hope to silence my worries. About lack of content.

The minigame was honestly as entertaining as that game. Playing a minima while the match sets up is genius. It's an awesome additi- Oh, wait. Please don't tell me it's fucking tied to amiibo. Of course it is.



Well, this is new.

I disconnected during my first battle, but other then that zero lag. The online in this game is amazing if will be like this.

Nintendo behind the times? Nintendo doesn't do online? Well fuck you. ;) (not directed at you)

It was fun
but it needs another kind of controls
the gyro is good
but this could be some great great game with two sticks control option

And the roller needs to be adjusted very unbalanced matches


You can change the controls. I played using both analog stick and no gyro sensor.

how? Tell me exactly pls sensei!!!

Yeah i keep getting dc/ back to the select weapon screen while it was searching for a match. But i didnt dc or have lag during the game. And it was very quick to select a weapon and search for a match.

Can't tell if you enjoyed the game.....or not.

And I believe the game does support the Pro Controller since you use it in the Battle Dojo.

Wow lol. The 2nd screen is actually instrumental to the game. Without it, you cannot see where you should be inking the most and launch to you teammates is an invaluable asset easily achieved on the screen without having to bring a menu up or anything like that.
