Nintendo reportedly delays 64GB Switch cartridges until 2019

Currently, the Switch cards can hold up to 32 gigabytes of data. According to the Wall Street Journal, the 64GB cards will no longer launch in the second half of 2018. At the very least, we might see Nintendo take advantage of the extra space afforded next year.

Nintendo has already sold over 10 million Switch consoles, meaning developers could continue to flock to the platform, regardless.

Switching back to cartridges hasn't just left a mark on the higher price tag of Nintendo's games, but also posed a tough limitation on storage for developers to abide by. The reason? Those pesky "technical issues" cropped up again, according to WSJ's sources, and Nintendo wants to ensure that product quality is up to snuff. Currently, the max size of the Nintendo Switch cartridges is 32GB, compared to the 50GB Blu-ray discs used by the PS4 and Xbox One. Game developers get Switch cards from Nintendo, so this means that they'll have to wait to get game cards that can support big titles.

A new report is making the rounds that claims Nintendo has given some bad news to developers out there working on Switch games that require more space than what's available on today's cards (32GB max).

The delay reportedly disappointed some software makers, especially US-based publishers known for producing data-heavy games. Games like L.A. Noire, Doom and National Basketball Association 2K18 actually require another download with their cartridges, with the games being too big for 16-GB cards-and L.A. Noire is still an example of the "Switch tax", with the physical game being $10 more than the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 editions.

IGN has reached out to Nintendo for comment.
