Fantastic news for anyone who’s embraced an all digital future yet was concerned with the Switch’s measly 32GB of internal storage. While we already knew the system would support Micro SDXC cards up to 256GB, a Nintendo representative clarified over the weekend that the Switch can be further expanded up to a whopping 2TB of memory. The news comes courtesy of Game Informer with a full statement found below:

“Nintendo Switch is compatible with the SDXC standard, which supports up to 2TB.”

It’s important to note that we are still a ways off from 1TB Micro SDXC cards hitting the market, let alone 2TB models. Considering the largest available SDXC cards currently hold 512GB of storage and retails for no less than $200, it could prove quite the expensive endeavor once they do finally launch. Nonetheless, it’s great to know the option will be available for those with a wad of coins burning a hole in their overalls.

    How about USB drives? Are they supported?

    Problem with USB-drives on a console that’s part handheld/mobile is that whenever you remove it from the dock, you’d have to move the HD to the handheld part instead, and that just won’t work in the long run.
    And would also require a HD that’s fully powered over USB…and considering the already low battery time (2,5-6 hours) adding a bus-powered HD to that is gonna lower that even more, so personally I doubt we’ll see USB-storage support.
    IF we see it, it’d have to be in docked-mode only I’m guessing.
