Nintendo won't be rolling out 64GB Switch cartridges until 2019

Nintendo Reportedly Delaying Delivery of 64GB Switch Game Cards Nintendo Delays 64GB Nintendo Switch Game Cards Until 2019

However, according to The Wall Street Journal as reported by The Verge, Nintendo just delayed them into 2019.

The Switch is a bonafide success.

This is an interesting development for Switch fans, but it doesn't exactly come as a surprise that the console has been such a smash hit for Nintendo. The sources said the move has brought "slight disappointment" to some developers, especially U.S. publishers who often need the larger capacity for their data-heavy games.

If you were expecting massive open-world games like GTA V on the Nintendo Switch anytime soon, think again. The physical cards used for games on the Nintendo Switch have been maxed at a 32-gig size, but the use of 64-gigabyte cards was planned further down the line. It makes bigger games like GTA V and The Witcher 3 a problem as their file sizes balloon to excess of 50GB. But The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo won't be ready for another year, in order "to ensure quality". The next generation of Switch games are going to be larger, not smaller, so one of three things could happen. Switch game cards now support 32GB of storage, and they're able to easily hold games like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Kentucky woman killed 'savagely' in dog attack identified
Around 10.20am, brother-in-law James Saylor called police to tell them that the two dogs had "savagely" attacked the couple. Investigators with the sheriff's office are warning residents no to engage with the risky animal if they come across it.

Unfortunately, they may have to wait a lot longer. This can have several repercussions.

The problem is acute with third-party games, mostly coded to exist on roomier Blu-Ray discs and have to buy their media from Nintendo. On top of all this, you have users fretting over their memory usage and having to shell out more cash for upgrades.

The Wall Street Journal adds that some US -based publishers may hold off on bringing certain games to Nintendo Switch because of this delay.

As a result, there are a few publishers that might delay releasing games that need the extra space.
