With a long list of big titles scheduled for release in 2022, you’re going to want to make sure you’ve got a Switch MicroSD so that you’ll have room for all the new additions to your library. If your Switch is running out of storage space, you’ll be pleased to hear that the SanDisk 128GB microSDXC-Card is now 41% off on Amazon, allowing you to expand your library without breaking the bank.

This year has already seen the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Kirby and the Forgotten Land, two games that are sure to go down as classics in their respective series. On top of that, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has had its first wave of Booster Pack courses (with more waves to come), and Splatoon 3, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, and tons of other games are all due for release in 2022, making now a good time to invest in a Switch MicroSD card.

Even with the Breath of the Wild 2 delay, this is going to be a good year to be a Nintendo fan. Although, it’ll be an annoying year if you find yourself having to delete some of the earlier games in your collection because you don’t have enough space on your Switch’s hard drive.

At 128GB, you’ll easily be able to store the save data for countless games that you play via cartridge, and with many Switch games having smaller file sizes, you’d be able to download a fair few of them too. If you love playing Switch indie games then, gosh, you’ll be able to store quite a collection in that micro SD.

If you would like a little more space, the SanDisk 256GB & 512GB microSDXC-Cards are both also available at 25% and 21% off respectively, but it’s the 128GB version that’ll get you the best value for money with its 41% discount. Any one of these would be ideal for your Switch as they have been specifically designed for use on the console, and even have Nintendo related emblems printed on them.

If you’re shopping in the UK, good news – every one of them is currently over 40% off in your region.
