With the Nintendo Switch’s internal memory being limited, many owners have sought extra storage by purchasing a microSD card. While there are many options on the market, SanDisk’s officially-licensed cards have gained popularity due to their Nintendo-inspired designs. SanDisk’s range has consisted of cards ranging from 64GB to 512GB, but two new designs are set to launch in May.
New Designs Available for Pre-Order and Purchase
In May, two new microSD cards will be available for purchase. The first is a 64GB card featuring a Yoshi egg on the card and Yoshi himself on the packaging. The second is a massive 1TB option featuring artwork from The Legend of Zelda. The latter releases just in time for the new Zelda game, Tears of the Kingdom. At the time of writing, the Yoshi card is only up for pre-order in the US, and the Zelda card is only available in the UK.
Are These Cards Worth the Price?
While SanDisk’s new Nintendo-inspired microSD cards are not the cheapest option on the market, they are aimed at collectors who appreciate the designs or those looking to give a special gift to a loved one. However, for those who are in need of a microSD card for their Switch at the best price possible and don’t care about the design, there are cheaper options available. A full guide to the best deals at retail can be found for those interested.
