Choosing a microSD card for your Nintendo Switch

One of the first things you probably noticed about the Nintendo Switch™ was its limited storage capacity. The device has 32GB of internal storage, which is not much when you consider how much room the OS itself takes up. This capacity may allow you to download several games and apps, but if you intend to play seriously, you will need more space.

And you can rejoice, because solutions exist,

in the form of microSD cards of different capacities. The Nintendo Switch is compatible with microSD cards up to 2TB. This all sounds great on paper, but it turns out that no standard microSD card reaches this 2TB capacity today. It is not excluded for the future, but in the meantime the maximum capacity of microSD cards is 1TB.


How much extra space will you really need?

It will depend on your preferences. Are you one of those who prefer physical copies of games or are you more of an online downloader? If you prefer to buy the physical copies, a microSD card with a capacity of 16 or 32 GB should suffice. By purchasing physical copies of your games, you have the advantage of being able to reserve the storage volume for other things. Remember, however, that some titles are available exclusively for download.


If you plan to download a lot of games, you’ll probably want to consider a high-capacity card, such as a 128, 256, or 512GB card. You will have more storage space for your games and they will load faster due to the superior performance of these cards. For moderate use, a 32 or 64 GB card is enough.

Besides capacity, there are a few additional things to consider when choosing a microSD card for your Nintendo Switch console:


  • High transfer speeds for fast loading
  • High stamina
  • Sustainable
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Free technical support
