Nintendo Switch Log Time Being Wiped After 1 Year, Reports Players

Nintendo Switch Log Time

Now that a year has passed since the release of the Nintendo Switch, players are beginning to notice something a bit odd. Across forums on both ResetEra and Reddit, gamers are reporting that their Nintendo Switch log time is resetting back to 0. Popping up on the former of the two popular sites, one player noticed that the playtime logged for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild stated that it was “First player 0 days ago.”

This is obviously an issue for those who use their playtime as something to show off to fellow gamers in celebration.

It’s understanding that players would become worried when their Nintendo Switch log time gets erased. Thankfully, the Big N is looking into the issue. Here was their response to the rising reports:

It’s only a matter of time before Nintendo resolves the problem, but we’re thinking they should pay attention to the Redditor from above that mentions the code not reading the year.
