Nintendo has released information about how much space you will need for Nintendo Switch game downloads. The sizes you’ll be looking at shows you just how much you are going to need to add an extra SD Card onto your console pre-order.
Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2, for example, won’t even fit on the consoles internal storage. The machine comes with 32GB of internal storage but 6.1GB is used up or reserved by the machines operating system.
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: 7 GB
- Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together: 1.6 GB
- Disgaea: 5: 5.92 GB
- Puyo Puyo Tetris: 1.09 GB
- I Am Setsuna: 1.4 GB
- Nobunaga’s Ambition: 5 GB
- Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2: 32 GB
The Nintendo Switch supports Micro SDXC and SDHC storage up to 2TB, which don’t currently exist. So if you have a Nintendo Switch pre-ordered be sure to add a card to your order or be disappointed. While Nintendo has officially branded SD Cards, we highly recommend looking at the better options like Sandisk which are a fraction of the price and have a proven quality track record.
