Nintendo’s end-of-year review will give you a quick look at your playtime this year. This was mine. Nintendo

The Nintendo Switch keeps track of some playtime data in each player’s profile, but there’s no complete record of how long you’ve been playing unless you setup Nintendo’s parental control app. The year in review isn’t comprehensive either, but it has some interesting data like month-by-month playtime.

The report also includes special cards for Nintendo exclusives like “The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening,” and “Super Mario Maker 2.”
