Last week, Switch users began to notice that their activity log data had reset and play time from before March 3rd had been deleted. A number of Redditors reported the loss of play time data while a few of us here at Engadget noticed the reset as well. And for those who got a Switch when it launched last March, that could mean that up to a year of activity had suddenly disappeared. Nintendo has now commented on the issue and if you're a Switch user you can breathe easy. Your data isn't gone.

In a tweet, Nintendo said that for some users, activity information is displaying incorrectly. However, players' true activity is still being recorded accurately. "A future system update will resolve this issue & ensure play time data is correctly displayed," said the company. Nintendo apologized for the problem.
