When the Nintendo Switch launches on the 3rd March, most people will also have picked up The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If that is the case, you should also invest in a bigger SD card as the 32GB of system flash memory is going to fill up fast. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild requires 13.4GB of storage space if you download it from the digital store.
That means that with one game and the systems OS and other storage reservations, you’ll have less than half of the system storage left for other games. The option, upgrade the system with microSDHC and microSDXC storage with the largest being 256GB.
Of course, instead of going digital, you can purchase the physical copy of the game so you don’t run into the storage problems on launch day. At some point, storage will become an issue anyway due to title updates for your games, things that can’t be bought as physical versions.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also needs 13GB of storage on Nintendo’s other console, the Wii U. Although the Wii U does support external hard drives up to 2TB so managing storage is a lot easier and cheaper.
