Nintendo Switch Supports Up To 2TB Micro SD; Console Is Ready For External USB Drives


During the Nintendo Switch presentation, the Japanese company confirmed that the console will come with 32GB of internal storage space, which can be expanded with SD cards. Not much else has been said about the console's storage options, but reports seem to suggest that the console is ready for external USB drives.

While attending the Nintendo Switch London event, Game Reactor Spain learned that the console will support micro SD cards up to 2 TB. With SD cards with such capacity being uncommon today, it's clear that Nintendo has been thinking ahead.

Additionally, the Game Reactor Spain reports reveals that the Nintendo Switch is ready for external USB drives, which will have to be connected to the console via the dock's ports. This option, apparently, won't be active at launch.

Following the Nintendo Switch presentation, the Japanese company revealed more details regarding its next console, which will launch in a little over a month.

Nintendo Switch is a breakthrough home video game system. It not only connects to a TV at home, but it also instantly transforms into an on-the-go handheld using its 6.2-inch screen. For the first time, players can enjoy a full home-console experience anytime, anywhere. The screen includes capacitive multi-touch capabilities for compatible games. Battery life can last for more than six hours, but will vary depending on the software and usage conditions. For example, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be played for roughly three hours on a single charge. While away from home, Nintendo Switch can be charged by plugging the AC adapter into the console’s USB Type-C connector.

The Nintendo Switch launches on March 3rd in all regions. We will keep you updated on the console as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
