The Best Nintendo Switch Micro SD Cards to expand your storage space

Nintendo Switch is out now and one of the main things we know for sure now that the system has launched is that the onboard 32GB of storage space won’t last you very long. Not to worry, it’s an easy thing to remedy, since the Switch works with any Micro SD on the market. Here are our picks for the best Nintendo Switch Micro SD cards.

With Nintendo’s recently announced file sizes of some of the Nintendo Switch launch games, as well as some that will be released in the coming months, it’s clear to see that if you plan on buying games digitally, you’re going to want a Micro SD card to expand your storage. Here are the best and cheapest Nintendo Switch Micro SD cards.

The Nintendo Switch will arrive on our shores on Friday 3rd March 2017. Every Nintendo Switch comes with a built-in storage capacity of just 32GB, which seems a little wanting in this day and age. Zelda alone will take up 40% of that space, so how can you expand your storage space? Here’s our guide to the best Micro SD cards for Nintendo Switch.

Thankfully, Nintendo has opted to continue its support of Micro SD cards, previously used in the company’s Nintendo 3DS handheld consoles. This means that rather than using a proprietary memory card format (like Sony’s PS Vita did), the company is instead using a much more standardised storage format. One so standardised in fact, that it’s used in a wide range of tablet computers and phones, meaning plenty of companies have been making these cards for quite some time.

Of course, what it will all come down to is two things – price and storage space. So what sort of size should you be looking for and what’s the cheapest way to get that extra storage? That’s where we come in. We’ve scoured the internet in order to bring you the best range of Micro SD cards and bring you the best bargains for each.

For context, here’s the full list of announced game download sizes:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 13.4GB
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 8GB
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris – 1.09GB
  • Disgaea 5 – 5.92GB
  • Snipperclips – 1.60GB
  • I Am Setsuna – 1.40GB
  • Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2 – 32GB
  • Nobunaga’s Ambition – 5GB

The Nintendo Switch itself is capable of using Micro SD cards of up to 2TB in size (a size which currently doesn’t exist, for the record) and while that’s a satisfyingly high number, you likely won’t have any use for it any time soon. Instead, you can opt to pick up Micro SD cards in sizes of 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. While a 32GB card will double your Nintendo Switch storage space instantly, for not much more money you can go for a much higher capacity card. But enough talk, let’s take a look at what’s out there and available to buy right now.
