"Western Digital is a global leader in memory storage, and its SanDisk brand microSD cards are trusted by consumers around the world," said Tom Prata, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives.

"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" said Sven Rathjen, Vice President of Product Marketing, Client Solutions, Western Digital.

Nintendo Switch gives its players the option to beef up their system’s built-in storage. Since the Switch library will only grow in the future, additional storage will enable players to download more digital games and content. Also, a microSD card will be needed for certain Nintendo Switch games that contain an especially large amount of content and require additional storage.
