We don't know Apex Legends' file size for Switch yet, but it's likely the game will take up a few gigs. Since this is a download-only affair, you'll have to make sure you've got some room to get in on the fun. That's why Western Digital is releasing a special Apex Legends-themed microSD card for Switch. Read all about it below!

Western Digital has teamed up with Respawn Entertainment to create an Apex Legends™-themed memory card for the Nintendo Switch™, offering gamers and contenders across the Outlands expanded storage solutions just in time for the universally acclaimed battle royale game to drop into the Nintendo eShop next month.

Featuring the distinctive Apex Legends insignia, players can squad up and battle for glory with the microSDXC card which offers up to 128GB* of expanded storage. Whether it’s existing fans who want to ready themselves to jump into the action, or new players looking to compete in the Apex Games for the first time, this microSDXC card ensures any gamer is equipped with the additional space they need to take on more adventures or challenges on their Nintendo Switch system.

“With a massive and growing fan base, Apex Legends provides an immersive squad-based battle royale experience unlike any other,” said Susan Park, Vice President, Client Solutions at Western Digital. “We’re excited to help bring the quality and reliability of our microSDXC products to this passionate community, offering unique storage solutions to help them play at their best.”

“As we continue to expand the Apex Legends universe, we’re committed to ensuring that our fans experience top-notch quality and fun, no matter what platform they’re using,” said Arturo Castro, Vice President, Global Brand Management at Electronic Arts. “As leaders in the storage space, working with Western Digital was critical to ensuring our fans are prepared to download and take on whatever adventures may come next in the Outlands.”


The Apex Legends 128GB* SanDisk microSDXC card for Nintendo Switch retails for $67.99 MSRP and is now available for purchase at select Western Digital retailers, e-tailers and on the Western Digital online store.
