How many games do you have on your Switch? I haven’t looked at mine, but I know there’s at least a couple hundred titles on there, easy. Well, that’s child’s play compared to GoNintendo fan, David. He’s got over 2,000 games in his collection, which is how he found out about a very interesting Switch hiccup.
If you happen to have over 2,000 Switch games, you might notice that some of your game icons will start to disappear from your library. This is because the Switch can only display up to 2,000 games. Once you go over that limit, the Switch will start to remove icons from your library. That in and of itself will cause another problem!
How do you play those games that end up disappearing? You can’t find them in your menu and the redownload option on the Switch eShop won’t work, because those games are actually still on your Switch. The only option to bring those icons back is to delete some games from your Switch. Once you get back down under that 2,000 number, your icons will become visible once again.
An odd thing to have happen, but admittedly, it’s one very, VERY few people will ever have to deal with. Still, it’s good to know just in case you hit that point!
