The microSD card comes with 1TB of storage and boasts write speeds of up to 90MB/s and read speeds of up to 100MB/s. These speeds may vary during actual use.

The microSD card could be useful for players of Tears of the Kingdom. The game is currently listed on the eShop as being roughly 16GB in size. That’s about half the standard internal storage space – 32GB – for the base Switch model and the Switch Lite.

Here’s how it will look:

It’s not the first official Nintendo Switch microSD memory card SanDisk released. Previously, the company offered licensed Super Mario cards with Super Star and Super Mushroom designs. It also released an Animal Crossing design. SanDisk will also put out a 64GB microSD card featuring a Yoshi egg design on the same day as the Tears of the Kingdom card.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom releases for Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023. The official Tears of the Kingdom microSD card launches on the same day.
