Nintendo Switch won't see 64GB game cards till 2019, report says

Nintendo was originally planning to deliver high-capacity 64-gigabyte Switch game cartridges to developers in the second half of 2018.

While it is unlikely many games would require so much space, the equivalent PS4 and Xbox One Blu-Ray limit is 50 GB after all, it still might deter some developers from porting games over. The sources said the move has brought "slight disappointment" to some developers, especially USA publishers who often need the larger capacity for their data-heavy games. And once the Switch's included memory is full, you have to upgrade to expensive external microSD memory. The Wall Street Journal noted the reason for the delay being technical issues, and also noted that many developers may delay their games until the cards become available.

According to a journalist called Takashi Mochizuki from the Wall Street Journal. Video games such as Splatoon 2 have managed to sell 1,292,281 units, Super Mario Odyssey has placed 1,292,281 copies and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, has managed to do the same with 1,045,438 copies.

Nintendo now offers cartridges in capacities of 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. Unfortunately, it'll have to wait.

Users have the option to buy physical game cards or download titles from Nintendo's eShop.

The Wall Street Journal adds that some US -based publishers may hold off on bringing certain games to Nintendo Switch because of this delay. Still, that may be enough to keep some games off the console or leave some Nintendo fans wishing the company would put some more room on the Switch. The physical cards used for games on the Nintendo Switch have been maxed at a 32-gig size, but the use of 64-gigabyte cards was planned further down the line.
