Several Nintendo Switch Digital Game Sizes Revealed
Thanks to Nintendo Switch game listings from Nintendo of Japan, we now know the sizes of several Nintendo Switch games. If you plan to get most of your Switch games physically, this shouldn’t be an issue, since physical games aren’t installed to the system. If you’re interested in digital Switch games, however, this is definitely something you should pay attention to.
Known Nintendo Switch Digital Game Sizes
- Puyo Puyo Tetris – 1.09 GB
- I Am Setsuna – 1.4 GB
- Snipperclips: Cut it Out, Together! – 1.6 GB
- Nobunaga’s Ambition – 5 GB
- Disgaea 5 – 5.92 GB
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 7 GB
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 13.4 GB
- Dragon Quest Heroes I & II – 32 GB
The Nintendo Switch only comes with 32 GB of internal storage, so you won’t be able to fit many digital games without external storage… and if you plan to get Dragon Quest Heroes I & II (which has yet to be confirmed for localization), you’ll need external storage for that alone!
If you want to get some extra storage for your Switch, you’ll need a Micro SD Card. So, what Micro SD Card should you buy? Here are some of our top recommendations.
If you only need a tiny amount of space…
Maybe you only plan to get a few digital games, and you just need a bit more. The SanDisk Ultra 32GB microSDHC card will double your Switch’s storage space!
Or maybe you need a little more…
Jumping up from 32 GB, SanDisk also offers the SanDisk Ultra 64GB microSDXC card for just a few dollars more. This is the option many players might prefer.
Then again, maybe you want LOTS of digital Switch games…
If you envision your Nintendo Switch storage space disappearing at an alarming rate due to your preference for digital games, it might be worth spending a bit more money for the SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSDXC model or even the SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD card.
While they do make 256 GB micro SD cards, the jump in price doesn’t seem worth it at this time. If you want a lot of storage for your Nintendo Switch, we recommend sticking with the 200 GB card for now.
