VGC points out that numerous third-party games, such as Mortal Kombat 11 (32.5 GB), The Witcher 3 (31.5 GB), and NBA 2K23, are far greater in size than Nintendo’s own offerings (53.7 GB). The Switch comes with its own 32 GB of storage space.

You can now pre-order Tears of the Kingdom. Because Nintendo has followed the lead of PlayStation and Xbox and increased their prices by $10, this game is the first Nintendo-published game to cost $70. As Nintendo has made clear, though, not all Switch titles will cost $70. The Nintendo Switch is the third best-selling console of all time, having sold over 122 million units.
