Western Digital Corp. has expanded its portfolio of Nintendo-licensed SanDisk microSD cards with the release of its highest capacity card yet, a 1TB (*) SanDisk microSD card for Nintendo Switch systems.
In partnership with Nintendo Co. Ltd., this supersized offering provides the highest capacity in the lineup of officially licensed SanDisk microSD cards, giving Nintendo Switch players more space to take their favorite games on the go.
This 1TB (*) card bears the Hylian Crest, inspired by The Legend of Zelda, and has been tested and approved for use with all Nintendo Switch systems. With the new capacity nearly doubling the amount of storage previously offered in the range of Nintendo-licensed SanDisk microSD cards, players will be able to expand their digital game library and store their favorite titles in one place. The Legend of Zelda fans in particular can rest assured that they can have the space they need to take on the new chapter in the franchise, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
“As a beloved franchise for over 30 years, The Legend of Zelda series continues to capture the hearts and minds of players across the globe,” said Susan Park, VP, global strategic partnerships, WD. “We’re excited to bring this latest card to the fan community and, through our strong partnership with Nintendo, we are proud to continue offering products that help gamers get the most out of their Nintendo Switch experience.”
The 1TB (*) SanDisk microSD card for Nintendo Switch retails for $149.99 MSRP and is available for purchase from select company’s retailers, e-tailers and on the firm’s online store.
For Nintendo Switch fans who are looking for a smaller bump in storage, a 64GB (*) Yoshi-inspired SanDisk microSD card is also joining the Nintendo-licensed portfolio. It is available for purchase at company’s retailers, e-tailers and on the firm’s online store with a retail price of $14.99 MSRP.
