The Switch comes with everything needed to get started then your ready to rock n roll. Although there are few extras that can help you get a little more out of your console, and in some cases, help it weather the wear-and-tear that it’ll undoubtedly get.
Firstly a microSD card will definitely help you extend your Switch’s default 32GB of storage. Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers regularly sell cards with up to 512GB of storage for around $90 bucks. A 400GB microSD card will cost you around $60, and with each game ranging in download size from 1GB to tens of GB, the card has enough space to store several of them.
Then you also might get a tempered glass screen cover. The display on the Switch and Switch Lite is covered in plastic, and it’s just asking to get scratched as soon as you take it out of the box. Save the heartbreak by getting an affordable, easy-to-apply glass cover at Amazon.
If you like to play online with your pals, ensure that your saves are backed up in the cloud, and then get access to a slate of on-demand games from the original Nintendo console and SNES console era, you’ll want to get a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. It’s only $20 per year for a single user on a console, or only $35 for up to eight users on different consoles each year.
