THE NINTENDO SWITCH, which is not out yet, has already had its 32GB memory challenged by a game.
Technically it is two games, a double pack of Japan-only titles about chasing dragons or something. Combined, the package takes up 32GB, at which point a Nintendo Switch would have to loosen its belt buckle, start breathing in a funny way, and make people ask if it is "alright hun?". Basically it would be stuffed. That it just maths.
The games which the Guardian pointed us towards, is Dragon Quest Heroes I and II. There is a trailer for the collection (below) and the games look and sound bananas.
We'd gladly skip them, but as the Guardian points out anyone that chooses to embrace them will find that they don't fit on the console that they were designed for.
We could start panicking about that now, but to be fair the game is Japan-only, as we keep pointing out, and all of the other titles that Nintendo is promoting will actually fit on the console when it is released.
In the UK we shouldn't really have a problem, unless of course you wanted to play the dragon games and did not want to wait for the almost-certain-to-be-released memory enhanced version of the Switch.
The console is released officially on 3 March, but we have reported in the past that UK punters might not get their devices until a couple of weeks later. Regardless of all that, there are some other consoles sold by Nintendo, and some of them may be better than the Nintendo Switch.
It is also worth bearing in mind that Nintendo has a thing called the NES Classic which you can pull apart breakdown and stuff with a whole galaxy of console games. The NES Classic, which Norwegian retailers reckon is finished, is much cheaper than the Switch as well. µ
