  • Report Nintendo Switch High Capacity Cartridge s Delayed to 2019

Users have the option to buy physical game cards or download titles from Nintendo's eShop. We're now learning that this move has been delayed.

The Wall Street Journal says Nintendo originally planned to deliver the bigger Switch game cards to developers in the second half of 2018. This may mean fans will have to wait for more "Data-rich software titles". As WSJ explains, publishers are of course aware of this and some US-based companies that produce "data-heavy games" may now delay their titles until the 64 GB cards are released.

However, many 3rd-party developers will continue to offer the remaining content that couldn't fit on the card initially as a download as seen previously.

Nintendo Switch would have sold 3,178,100 units in Asia since its launch last March.

The new blue and gold travel documents will be issued to those renewing or applying for a new passport from October 2019. It's official: the government will resurrect the old, pre-EU blue passport after Brexit .

As it stands, the biggest Switch cartridges can hold 32GB of data, so quite a bit less than the 50GB capacity of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One's Blu-ray discs. Switch game cards now support 32GB of storage, and they're able to easily hold games like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

While there is no doubt that downloading games is becoming more and more popular, some still prefer physical media when buying their games.

At the moment, game cards for the Switch top out at 32GB.

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. "Now it looks like the Switch is going to be the "it" console", which is a significant development for Nintendo.
