Nintendo Switch Bricks Overnight

Nintendo Switch user named  Anthony John Agnello claimed that his hours of in-game progress have been lost due to a faulty launch system that bricked his console. He further noted that the device suddenly showed an error screen prior, and continued to appear even after a soft reboot.

When the Nintendo Switch was returned after two days, Agnello discovered that the error has made some data become unreadable.
