Nintendo Delays The Drop For 64-Gigabyte Switch Game Cards Til 2019

  • The Nintendo Switch Has All Five Games You Need To Play This Week

If there's not enough room on the cartridge, users have to download the rest - or the entire game - to the system's onboard storage, which quickly fills up.

Unfortunately, this means that we are unlikely to see Grand Theft Auto V, The Witcher 3 or any other big, third-party open world game on the Nintendo Switch any time soon. According to the report, Nintendo ran into "technical issues" with the 64 GB cards.

Nintendo has already informed the developers about the delay in the 64GB Nintendo Switch cartridges.

The current maximum amount the Switch game cards can now hold is 32GB, less than the 50GB Blu-ray discs used in other consoles.

Presumably, larger games that won't fit on the available game cards could still be sold as downloadable titles. Nintendo has made a decision to halt the production of 64 GB memory cartridges for the Nintendo Switch.

The biggest memory hog in Nintendo's first party lineup is actually The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with over 13GB of total memory space required on the carts to be played.

By comparison, Blu-ray discs for the PS4 and Xbox One can hold 50 GB of data. I suspect option one is likely to be what most developers choose to do.

Nintendo wont be handing out larger 64GB Switch cartridges to external developers until at least 2019, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal.

Users have the option to buy physical game cards or download titles from Nintendo's eShop. The standard Nintendo Switch comes with 32GB of internal storage space - before a microSD card slot is added on.
