It Takes A Very Long Time For Monopoly To Load On Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch version of the popular board game Monopoly recently made its debut with new ways to play. However, it is also currently affected by extremely-long load times. Opening the game from the Switch menu can take anywhere from five to 10 minutes. On top of that, starting a fresh match against AI players can apparently take another five to 10 or more minutes. In order to alleviate this issue, Ubisoft recommends players to restart their console after downloading and installing the game.

“We are aware of a loading time issue with Monopoly for Nintendo Switch and our teams are working on a patch to resolve the issue as soon as possible,” the publisher said in a statement. “In the meantime, players should reboot their Nintendo Switch prior to starting Monopoly for Nintendo Switch. We will share an update when the issue has been resolved.”




  1. i just bought the physical version of this game and first installed the update and then turned off the switch using the power button on the console for a few seconds until power options showed up and then turned it off and then on again and it loads in around 10 seconds. No problem whatsoever!

    1. I remember that joke from Code Monkeys with drunk Dave dissing “Defender” for using too many buttons for a 2D scrolling side shooter.


  2. Lazy ass programming. It takes Mario Kart 8 10-13 seconds to load while Skyrim takes 25 seconds. A fucking board game loading THIS LONG is obvious sign of shotty programming and testing.

    1. Or Mario Party 10. I’m serious. I rather buy that crap than wait 5-10 for a fucking simple board game to load. This is bullshit.


      1. the game does. The calculating and moving etc. This version has the dice feeling in the controller grips and it’s very portable. Faster to setup than the board and has many quick game options. Also various boards and fun animation. That’s some of the reasons we buy a digital monopoly. ;-)

        Fortunately, this version does have online play. It also loads in seconds if you reboot the console after install, as previously stated.
