Here's Why Your Switch Play Data Might Have Just Reset

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 may be headed to Nintendo Switch. Basically now it seems that gamers won't be able to see how long they've spent playing a particular game, like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Nintendo Switch owners were surprised to see their playtime records reset just in time for the hybrid console's first anniversary on the market.

That's a hefty price to pay, but after playing the game for hundreds of hours in the past year, and listening to the "Sound Selections" soundtrack, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't at least somewhat tempted. It appears that sometime around when the console turned 1 year old, it erased 365 days' worth of activity from the Zelda playtime log.

Michigan: Play in the title game against the victor of the game between third-seeded Purdue and seventh-seeded Penn State. The Wolverines and Boilermakers dueled twice this year, twice producing stellar games and twice producing Purdue wins.

Update: In a statement to Polygon, Nintendo of America said that play data is now "displaying incorrectly" for some users.

Nintendo Switch owners will get their lost play time data in the future and shouldn't worry about current progress not being tracked, according to Nintendo.

On the Switch, players can go to their profile on the home menu and look at the last 20 games they have played, along with how many hours were spent in each one.

As the Nintendo Switch celebrates its first birthday, the system's big-name titles show no signs of waning in popularity. 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. Nintendo has acknowledged the issue and has released a statement assuring that the reset will be addressed soon. That info came in the form of the newest tweet confirming that correct times would return in the future, though when that update will be released remains to be announced.
