On Nintendo Switch players will experience a few exceptions compared to the other versions of the game: 

  • When disconnecting from a Multiplayer match, players on Nintendo Switch will not be able to reconnect. 
  • Connecting Residences will not show a visual connection between the buildings (archways, etc.). This does not affect gameplay.
