Nintendo Switch activity logs reset on its one-year anniversary

There were obviously many more games that were released on the Switch but those are some nice highlights. Through the official website of Nintendo Japan, we've found out that the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild OST has been officially announced, spanning 5 CDs for a total of 211 tracks. These links leave Siliconera. Since launch, a continuous rollout of free new content has released for the game, making it more fun than ever to splat friends and family on the go or at home. The Switch takes 10 days to process playtime when a game is first booted, and with that users are noticing the stats are taking the day and month into account, not the year.

Sometime after that, Nintendo fan magazine Nintendo Force said that the playtime only disappears for ten days, before it comes back on day 11.

Nintendo users are finding that their logged playtime data from one year ago, when the console launched, is gone. Polygon received a pre-release Nintendo Switch review unit on February 24, 2017. Usually companies tend to upgrade the hardware on their consoles on their new consoles, but it looks like Nintendo will be putting their focus into other aspects of the Switch for this year instead.

Nintendo has since acknowledged the issue in a tweet, stating "Some Nintendo owners' play activity information is displaying incorrectly". In the meantime fans have taken this opportunity to tell Nintendo that they want a legitimate activity log like past systems; not the rudimentary one we have on Switch now.

Considering the game data for a Nintendo Switch profile updates once a week, the numbers have become inaccurate. That's why our activity log only says when we apparently began playing the game, and not how many hours we've played it for since February 24. "We are aware of the issue and we expect to have more information to share in the near future".
