Apex Legends Nintendo Switch Can’t Connect EA Account – How to Fix

To fix the issue where you can’t connect your EA account to Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, there are a few things that you can try. The main one is making sure that your console’s time and region are set correctly. A lot of Switch users mess around with these to time travel in Animal Crossing. The process is very useful in that game, but it can cause problems elsewhere. One such case is that it will “confuse” your EA account trying to make sense of your Switch. So, return your settings to default (relative to your EA account, anyway), and things should work fine.

If that doesn’t happen, well, then you’re going to have to report the issue to EA directly. It seems that the Switch version of Apex Legends is experiencing a ton of problems; this is just one of them. The developers are probably well aware of the issue by now, so I’m sure that they’ll roll out some kind of hotfix as soon as possible. Until then, though, fixing your time and date is the only thing you can do if you can’t connect your Apex Legends EA account to the Nintendo Switch.

If you have another solution for this issue, let us know in the comments. I’m sure a lot of people are going to be very grateful. Here’s hoping that the devs get rid of the error as soon as possible.

    Same problem for me.
    Switch takes me through EA registration process, but the email entry screen will not allow you to move to the “next” button after you have entered your email address. You essentially get stuck with the only thing you can do is edit the email address and then being unable to move on.
