One of the most important accessories for any Nintendo Switch owner is a microSD card (or multiple cards if you own lots of games). The Switch's internal memory isn't exactly brilliant, leaving most owners in need of extra storage once they've downloaded a handful of games.

Previously, the range has consisted of cards ranging from 64GB to 512GB, but that's all about to change thanks to a couple of new designs headed our way soon.

Two new cards are set to launch in May – a brand new 64GB card featuring a Yoshi egg on the card and Yoshi himself on the packaging, as well as a mighty 1TB option featuring artwork from The Legend of Zelda. And yes, the latter releases just in time for Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
