The internal storage on the Nintendo Switch is capped at 32GB which is why many people have resorted to grabbing a micro SD card for extra memory. The 32GB may be enough for a few games but certainly not an entire collection. The Nintendo Switch has been out for six months at this point and with four months remaining in the year and plenty of releases to come, those that do not already have an additional micro SD card for extra space will definitely need one soon.
Though there are a variety of options for external storage, SanDisk, one of the most popular and reliable brands for memory, has recently partnered with Nintendo to bring officially licensed microSDXC cards featuring the Nintendo Switch and SanDisk logos and familiar characters on its packaging.
Now, picking up all of the necessary accessories for your new Nintedo Swtich will be easier than ever once these official products arrive in the Nintendo section at your favorite video game retailer. You will have no problem spotting them out with the Link themed option at 64GB or you can pick up the Mario themed card with twice as much memory providing 128GB of storage.
Here’s what Tom Prata, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives had to say about the new partnership:
Western Digital is a global leader in memory storage, and its SanDisk brand microSD cards are trusted by consumers around the world. These new Nintendo-licensed memory cards provide significant additional storage for digital content, and in many retail locations they will be conveniently displayed alongside Nintendo Switch games and accessories.
These brand new Nintendo-licensed SanDisk 64 GB and 128 GB microSDXC memory cards will be available in select stores beginning next month in October.
