Nintendo creates official SD Cards for Nintendo Switch
Nintendo and Western Digital Corporation (The creators of SanDisk) are teaming up to create Nintendo-licensed memory cards for use in Nintendo Switches. The MicroSDXC cards will be available in 64GB’s and 128GB’s. They will have the Nintendo Switch and SanDisk logos. They have a 100MB/S Read speed and 90MB/S Write speed, which is pretty good nowadays.
What they look like:
They look very good, branded with Mario in his Kart and all the information you would need on the front in a pretty big font.
As you can see, they have the original Nintendo seal of quality, and this particular card holds 128GB, like I said.
They will be available at selected retail stores from October 2017. I’m not sure if this is for all regions or just for the USA.
Do I trust this SD Card:
SanDisk are one of the biggest names with SD Cards and USB drives, and if it has the Nintendo Seal, of course I trust it. I wouldn’t trust brands other than SanDisk or Integral.
- You can use these SD Cards for data transfer, other consoles/mobile phones, or anything else that supports a Micro SD Card.
- A Micro SD Card is required for especially large Nintendo Switch games/games with lots of Additional Content.
- The additional storage will allow players to add to their library of Digital Games.
- The vice president of Western Digital, Sven Rathjen, says “As more and more amazing games and related content become available for download on Nintendo Switch, our licensed memory cards allow users to quickly and easily expand their storage”
- “Nintendo Switch has generated tremendous momentum, and we are thrilled to partner with Nintendo to offer consumers a trusted card for their system.”
