Nintendo Switch Not Getting New Hardware Version This Year

  • Nintendo Switch deletes playtime data after a year (update)

This glitch was reported only a few days ago, on the cusp of the Nintendo Switch's one year anniversary.

While many more Switch owners are noticing their play times apparently being reset on the console, it appears this, thankfully, isn't permanent.

Nintendo of America took to Twitter over the weekend to confirm the issue.

Nintendo said in a tweet that it's aware of the reports, and will have more to share soon.

On March 3rd 2018, the Nintendo Switch celebrated its first anniversary of going on sale in the United Kingdom, and with that came an unexpected bug which caught many players off guard. This is how long it takes for your play time to show up on your Switch profile, so console owners thought nothing of it.

Scott McTominay 'chooses Scotland over England' after talks with both countries
Having not qualified for a major tournament since the 1998 World Cup, there is a desperation among Scotland fans for things to improve as soon as possible.


That's a hefty price to pay, but after playing the game for hundreds of hours in the a year ago, and listening to the "Sound Selections" soundtrack, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't at least somewhat tempted. It's unclear if this is a permanent issue or if Nintendo will be able to restore the times via a system update.

It is a bit unfortunate as activity logs like that can be something of a bragging right, where there are some gamers who have spent hundreds of hours over the course of several years on their favorite game.

Since it released on March 3, 2017, the console and its subsequent games (both original titles and ports) have racked up a tremendous amount of praise, especially The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

After having been on the market for just over a year now, the Nintendo Switch has managed to become one of the gaming world's most coveted pieces of hardware, with the industry analysts predicting that the system's sales will reach 40 million in just four years' time. You can this in the screenshot below.
