According to a new Wall Street Journal report, Nintendo is planning to release 64 GB cards for the system, but they won't launch on time.

With its newest flagship console, Nintendo chose to bring back cartridges in place of disc-based games that ran on the previous three. Now, that date has slipped into 2019 amid "technical issues, "reports the Wall Street Journal".

The Nintendo Switch is a bonafide success, but third-party developers have been feeling the sting when porting their games to the platform. Nintendo chose cartridges because they're smaller, and less prone to errors if you shake them up when using the console in the portable mode. That's considerably smaller storage compared to a Blu-ray, which can hold up to 50 gigabytes of data for a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One game. An eventual move to 64GB would allow for more data-intensive games. This could be a problem because Switch owners may have to download large amounts of digital data since game cards won't be big enough to have the full game.

Third-party developers hoping to get their hands on 64GB game cards for Nintendo Switch soon may be out of luck.

The delay is notable due to how it might affect third party publishers wanting to bring games to the console, but may hesitate from memory constraints. Switch users also have the alternative of downloading games over the internet.

Ever since the Game Cube era, Nintendo has had a hard time courting outside publishers to bring games to their platforms.
