From 1GB to 32GB
You’re going to get access to roughly 26GB of the Switch’s 32GB onboard space, so if you aren’t planning on buying a memory card and want to go digital, pay attention to the file sizes of each game before you buy them (or better yet, spring for a card).
That’s going to be a lot easier as of this week, as Nintendo’s Japanese Switch site just obtained a bunch of new information, which thankfully confirms that many games are only going to be in the 1GB range.
That includes Snipperclips (1.60GB), I Am Setsuna (1.40GB), and Puyo Puyo Tetris (1.09GB). A few are on the higher side, like Dragon Quest Heroes 1+2 (32GB), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (7GB), and Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence (5GB). As a reminder, Breath of the Wild is 13.4GB.
With a sizeable card, it seems as if it’s not going to be as bad as a lot of other systems, where first-party releases approach 40GB. Not yet, at least.
