The Nintendo Switch is launching this week and gamers around the world are excited to start gaming on the new console-handheld hybrid. However, as many gamers already know, it won’t take much for the Nintendo Switch’s 32GB of internal storage space to fill up, especially with games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild taking up nearly half of the available space.

Fortunately, the Nintendo Switch works with any Micro SD card for expanded storage, up to 2TB (which doesn’t exist yet, by the way). With that in mind, our team scoured the web for the best deals on Micro SD cards and has prepared the following list of options fro Nintendo Switch owners.

As Nintendo Switch owners prepare to select the best Micro SD card for their needs, it’s smart to be aware of the space requirements for a few of the titles coming for Nintendo Switch. Considering the fact that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild isn’t even the Nintendo Switch’s most storage-intensive title, gamers should really consider getting a hefty Micro SD card for the device.

The below space requirements have been confirmed and give gamers an idea for what to expect:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 13.4GB
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 8GB
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris – 1.09GB
  • Disgaea 5 – 5.92GB
  • Snipperclips – 1.60GB
  • I Am Setsuna – 1.40GB
  • Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2 – 32GB
  • Nobunaga’s Ambition – 5GB

These are a few of the best options currently available to gamers for Nintendo Switch expanded storage options. As Nintendo announced, Switch owners can use any Micro SD card available, but the above-mentioned options are easily the best priced cards for the quality.

That being said, it’s important to note that these cards can only be used for game files and not save files too. As was discovered when reviewing the Nintendo Switch, game save files are locked to the console.

Nintendo Switch launches on March 3, 2017.
