Can playtime be transferred to a new switch.


Active Member
I am looking to get the Monster Hunter Switch console but want to know in advance if I can transfer my playtime for games over. So say I have 100 hours on a game if I play for another 5 hours it will update to 105 as opposed to starting from 0 again. I know that you can transfer save data but I cant seem to find anything online from Nintendo regarding playtime. I still have the original Switch as I need that to transfer saves over.
Any insight into this would be most appreciated.

Play time records are linked to your Nintendo account so they’ll be on your new Switch when you transfer your user.
So as long as I do the account transfer from switch to switch it will be fine and add play hours on to any existing.
Thanks :)
