Nintendo Delays 64 GB Switch Card Launch To 2019

Nintendo Delays 64 GB Switch Card Launch To 2019

The largest Nintendo Switch game card now is 32 gigabytes. Since developers rely on Nintendo to supply the game cards, it's up to Nintendo to fix this issue.

The delay comes after it was announced that 10 million units of Nintendo Switch have been moved. According to the report, Nintendo ran into "technical issues" with the 64 GB cards.

The Nintendo Switch has been a massive success for Nintendo, with the console matching the sales of its rivals.

The current Switch cartridges hold 32GB, which is less than the 50GB that a Sony PlayStation 4 or Microsoft Xbox One game disc can hold.

It seems like publishers may have some trouble releasing data-heavy Nintendo Switch games next year, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. With games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey hitting best of 2017 lists left and right, it's jam-packed with great games and ports of other titles that people have clamored for.

The Wall Street Journal adds that some US -based publishers may hold off on bringing certain games to Nintendo Switch because of this delay.

Switching back to cartridges hasn't just left a mark on the higher price tag of Nintendo's games, but also posed a tough limitation on storage for developers to abide by. The first is that more games shipped on physical cartridges will require large (10GB+) downloads to play, the second is that more games will opt to launch as digital-only games, and the third is that we'll see games delay their release in order to wait for the 64GB cartridges to arrive.

Nintendo did not respond to a request for comment.
