#Nintendo Switch's 32 GB memory card will not be sufficient to house all future games. Despite the relatively small catalog of titles available so far, quite a few came close to skipping the size limit. Obviously, it is unlikely for future games to get any smaller, so players should prepare their wallet to purchase a new microSD card.

At the very least, Nintendo was not greedy enough to release specifically made cards which cost five times as much as a regular microSD. Still, it is a bit annoying that the basic console includes such a meager amount of space.

All on the box

We have to give it to Nintendo; they are probably the most considerate big gaming company in the world.

Games which are too big to fit on a microSD will include a warning on the front and back of the physical box. At least, players will know what they are in for when buying one of their future products.

The same consideration will be seen online, as the eShop will list whether the player has enough memory to install a game.

Regarding which titles require a new microSD, "NBA 2k18" is confirmed to need one. That is the only title known to be bigger than 32 GB, so we guess "Super Mario Odyssey" will not have this issue.

Nintendo Switch

Nintendo's latest console is proving to be a hit worldwide, especially in Japan, where it continues to sell incredibly well. The main criticism of the console, its lack of games, is slowly being put to rest with each passing month.

"Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is no longer the only reason to purchase the Nintendo Switch, although it remains the best one.

Games like "Splatoon 2" and "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" are great additions to the console's catalog, despite not offering anything new.

"#Super Mario Odyssey" is the next huge release planned for the Switch, set to be available to purchase on October 27, 2017. "Xenoblade Chronicles 2" might also be released by the end of the year, which could very well end up being one of the best JRPG of 2017.

Hack and slash fans have "#Fire Emblem Warriors" to look forward to in October, which combines the strategy game with "Dynasty Warriors."

For those who have somehow yet to play it, "Skyrim" is coming to the Switch by the end of the year.

Seeing all the above games, it would not be a surprise if "Xenoblade Chronicles 2" and "Fire Emblem Warriors" are bigger than 32 GB. Once closer to their release date, we should know whether a new microSD will be needed. Stay tuned for more..
