This nifty gadget can be used as a tablet handheld gaming device, or you can dock it so you can play on the big screen. All of the said games are playable without an external #Sd Card, but it seems like things will be changing soon [VIDEO].

While revealing a new partnership with SD card maker SanDisk, Nintendo has also revealed that, moving forward, some Nintendo Switch games will require a MicroSD card in order to experience the full content of certain upcoming games. Depending on the storage requirements for each game, it may be necessary to purchase a microSD card to expand storage space.

Similarly, a representative for #Nintendo Of America claimed that future game boxes would have a notice informing players about the memory card requirement.

"As more and more awesome games and related content become available for download on Nintendo Switch, our licensed memory cards allow users to quickly and easily expand their storage". And for those downloading on the eShop, there will be the standard information noting how large the game is is.

Once released, these memory cards will be displayed alongside Switch games and accessories for fans to find easily.

400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card is capable of storing long durations of full-HD videos and movies, transferring up to 1,200 high-quality photographs in a minute, the company says. The microSDXC cards will be available this coming October, but there is no word on pricing just yet, however we expect that apart from the official licensing from Nintendo, they should be pretty much the same as the regular microSDXC cards, so don't expect too great of a price variation. Well, Mario and Link are on the packaging and the 64-and-128 gigabyte cards have Nintendo branding printed on them.
