With the best Nintendo Switch SD card, you can expand your console's storage and save more games. After all, the Switch OLED only comes with 64GB and the basic Switch just 32GB. So when you consider that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild needs 13.4GB of space and Mario Odyssey needs 5.7GB, you can see why the extra storage of an SD card can be useful.

Choosing a card can be tricky, though, as they all do the same job on paper. Look out for a read speed of at least 60MB/s and of course, pay attention to the amount of gigabytes on offer. We list the best Nintendo Switch SD cards available today below.
