Nintendo Partners with Western Digital to Create Licensed Switch SanDisk Memory Cards
Western Digital entered a partnership with Nintendo to produce SanDisk microSDXC memory cards in capacities of 64 and 128GB. The additional storage will be useful to download more digital content; it will even be required for certain Nintendo Switch games that contain an “especially large” amount of content.
Tom Prata, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives, said:
Western Digital is a global leader in memory storage, and its SanDisk brand microSD cards are trusted by consumers around the world. These new Nintendo-licensed memory cards provide significant additional storage for digital content, and in many retail locations they will be conveniently displayed alongside Nintendo Switch games and accessories.
Sven Rathjen, Vice President of Product Marketing, Client Solutions, Western Digital, added:
As more and more amazing games and related content become available for download on Nintendo Switch, our licensed memory cards allow users to quickly and easily expand their storage. Nintendo Switch has generated tremendous momentum, and we are thrilled to partner with Nintendo to offer consumers a trusted card for their system.
The memory cards will be available in October.
