1TB SanDisk microSD for Nintendo Switch, Zelda edition
Bangkok, Thailand, May 23, 2023 – Western Digital has expanded its portfolio of Nintendo-licensed SanDisk® microSDTM cards with the release of its highest capacity card yet, a 1TB* SanDisk microSD card for Nintendo Switch™ systems. In partnership with Nintendo®, this supersized offering provides the highest capacity in the lineup of officially licensed SanDisk microSD cards, giving Nintendo Switch players even more space to take their favorite games on the go.
The new 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 exciting 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, vice president, global strategic partnerships at Western Digital. “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 will be available for purchase starting from end of June at leading IT stores and on SanDisk Official Store at Lazada and Shopee.
For Nintendo Switch fans who are looking for a smaller bump in storage, a new 64GB* Yoshi-inspired SanDisk microSD card is also joining the Nintendo-licensed portfolio.
