Nintendo Switch lets you see your playtime - after 10 days

A lon lon time.

Nintendo Switch users have spent the past week trying to find out their playtime for each game.

Previous Nintendo systems have included a log for all games played - and similar functions exist on other consoles, too. Now, after people have had Switch for more than 10 days, the function has appeared.

Simply go to your profile, and where a game previously said "first played nine days ago", it now lists your approximate playtime. This will only show up after you've owned a game for more than 10 days, however.

Before 10 days.
And after.

Switch owners had previously been using the console's Parental Controls app to keep track. It's now a lot easier.
