With its newest flagship console, Nintendo made a decision to bring back cartridges in place of disc-based games that ran on the previous three.
That, in turn, might make it harder for developers to bring top-tier, graphically intensive games to the Switch in 2018, imperiling the pipeline of flagship games. Cartridges cost more to produce, but they are far more portable and decrease loading times.
The current Switch cartridges hold 32GB, which is less than the 50GB that a Sony PlayStation 4 or Microsoft Xbox One game disc can hold. Perhaps that's why developers were excited to get their hands on the 64GB game cards. But there's apparently been a delay due to technical issues. Switch users also have the alternative of downloading games over the internet. Nintendo's own large games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey clock in well below 16 gigs.
Physical game cards for the Nintendo Switch are troublesome for some third party developers because they can not fit their games on the cartridges.
Ever since the Game Cube era, Nintendo has had a hard time courting outside publishers to bring games to their platforms. Well it sounds like third party developers have to live with the smaller storage until 2019.
Long term success of the Switch depends somewhat significantly on third-party support.
