Nintendo Switch to be available for launch-day walk-ins at GameStop

Nintendo of Japan revealed that for the upcoming gaming console Nintendo Switch, you might want to look into your budget again before buying it.

As we all learned from Switch being out for the public, the available internal memory of the console is only 25.9 GB.

Nintendo Switch is introducing the Nintendo Online Service where users can subscribe to a plan for game access.

As for what comes with the console, a game collection called 1-2 Switch will launch alongside the Switch and will include various mini-games which show off the features of the Nintendo Switch's controllers. Taking into account the Switch's operating system, pre-installed software and operations that occupy 6.1GB, according to Polygon, downloading the games are virtually impossible without the need of an additional storage device.

Of course, this won't be much of a problem if you'd rather purchase physical copies of all your games but this is an approach to game buying that's increasingly not for everyone.

Nintendo Switch users are required to register for a Nintendo Account ID for a smoother and more secure online service.
