Nintendo Switch – Play Activity

The Nintendo Switch was released exactly one year ago worldwide, and it looks like players are getting a rather amusing glitch as a present. Indeed, the play history on your profile may display the wrong number of hours played for specific games (namely, those you first played on your brand new console), as if it had been completely reset.

No, you didn’t travel back in time, and no, your play history wasn’t deleted: it’s just a (seemingly) rather harmless glitch, that Nintendo is currently investigating. More details about it will be shared in the near future.
