Nintendo Switch memory cards have faced some issues in the past. Some players said that the console maker should issue a "fixed" SD card for the Switch.

Over the previous years, the preference for established internal storage still varies from one player to another.

The impending arrival of the newest console, Nintendo Switch OLED, could spark some doubt about the improvement of the memory cards in the long run. Since it is a "slight upgrade" of the original Switch, the SD cards for this gaming device could require bigger storage.

In 2017, the then-upcoming Switch game, "Dragon Quest Heroes" had drawn criticisms from many users. The issue behind this game is its ridiculous space of 32 GB, yet the players could only occupy 26 GB of its storage.

So much for that, let's now dive into a shortlist of the best memory cards for Nintendo Switch.

Here are the best memory cards for your Nintendo Switch.

According to a report by Kotaku on Monday, July 19, Nintendo has given a green light for the SanDisk SD card to be the most recommended memory card for Switch.

Even if it's quite expensive, its impressive memory processing could reach up to 100 Mbps in speed.

The comparison can easily be drawn with Ryzen AMD, which lets the computer boot faster than a traditional OS. Currently, you can buy this on Amazon for $25 from its previous price of $35 for the 128 GB variant.

If you want more space in your Nintendo Switch, you can purchase the much larger 256 GB type.

Mixza Tohaoll microSDXC, the Most Price-Friendly Memory Card

While SanDisk's SD card is dubbed as the best memory card in Nintendo Switch, Mixza Tohaoll's micro SD card is one of the most affordable chips that you can purchase.

For just $8, you can now have a 32 GB card.

If you want larger space for your console, you could root for the 128 GB and 256 GB variants, which are priced at $20 and $35, respectively, here at Amazon.

How to Transfer Games to Memory Card in Nintendo Switch

The process is easy for this part.

Begin by opening the system settings. Go to data management after. Later, you can now select "move data between systems."

From there, there are two choices that you can make: the first is to transfer files from the SD card to your device, and vice versa. You can then now start transferring games by selecting them.

Remember that you cannot move the saved data here, but you can create a backup by opening the Nintendo Switch Online in the data management menu. Look for the option with "save data cloud." Then, enable "automatic save-data backup."
