The Nintendo Switch Glitch That Wipes Playtime Data After a Year Will Be Fixed

Nintendo Switch owners have been finding that their play logs have been curiously missing their data after a year, with the logs simply erased. Some ResetEra members had first noticed the issue, when they saw that their Switches hadn’t been displaying their The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild playtime anymore, and found that several games that are a year old like that game simply had been erased from the console.

This lead to many other players assuming that the playtime would just be erased, given that the Switch apparently doesn’t care that the year is different than it was last year. And then Nintendo magazine Nintendo Force noticed that the playtime only disappears from the system for ten days, then returns on the 11th day, strangely enough.

Nintendo has since responded, stating that these issues should not be happening. The company will be resolving the problems, which will come in the form of a patch in the system’s next firmware update.
