Nintendo Switch owners would have to invest some more bucks on procuring additional storage. MicroSD cards would come handy given the fact that one of the games to be launched on Nintendo Switch needs way more storage space than what the console is offering to gamers.

The launch of Nintendo Switch is just round the corner and the internal memory of the console has already been revealed to be a mere 32 GB, out of which only 26 GB would be accessible to users.

Nintendo's Japan website has received an update that provides one with details and specifications about eight games, which will be coming to Switch immediately or shortly after the console's launch.

The page details how much space each game will require to function smoothly on Nintendo Switch. In the same page, it was spotted that Dragon Quest Heroes I and Dragon Quest Heroes II will require a space of 32 GB to get installed and function properly.

Dragon Quest Hero Space Issues

Although initially it may look that Dragon Quest Heroes I and Dragon Quest Heroes II may squeeze the console, given that it offers 32 GB of storage, one must not forget the space that will be taken up by the console's operating system and user data.

Gamers who have a knack for JRPG's will grudgingly have to opt for additional storage to expand Switch's capacity.

Dragon Quest Heroes I and Dragon Quest Heroes II if analyzed carefully pack in an equivalent of two PlayStation 4 (PS4) games, namely The World Tree's Woe and The Blight Below, both of which were released in 2015.

Other Games On Nintendo Switch

Apart from Dragon Quest Heroes I and Dragon Quest Heroes II, seven other games will also get launched on Nintendo Switch. These games are as follows and the amount of space they will require are also listed below.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (13.4 GB)

Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence (5 GB)

I Am Setsuna (1.4GB)

Puyo Puyo Tetris (1.09 GB)

Disgaea 5 Complete (5.92 GB)

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (7 GB or more)

Snipperclips - Cut It Out, Together! (Maximum 1.6 GB)

Cartridges Won't Take Up Memory Reserves

On the brighter side, these space issues are only related to the downloadable version of the games. The cartridge releases of these Nintendo games won't require installation in the console itself. Thus, the memory of Nintendo Switch can be expanded a lot if one wishes to buy physical copies of the game in the future. So running a game loaded on a microSD card won't eat up the console's memory reserve.

The Nintendo Switch is slated for a March 3 release.. As for Dragon Quest Hero I and Dragon Quest Hero II, neither Nintendo nor the game's developer Square Enix has officially declared a date for the title's western release. However, the PS4 version of the game is scheduled to get released in Europe on Aug. 28.
