WD already has several partnerships with other game developers to produce similar products including the first batch of Nintendo-licenced memory cards for Nintendo Switch and an Apex Legends edition memory card for Nintendo Switch – all available at the WD store. The unique colour of these microSD cards should help gamers identify which is which if you have multiple of these. Other than the fancy look, these cards have the exact specifications as the SanDisk Extreme Pro microSDXC UHS-I cards offering sequential read of up to 100MB/s and sequential write of up to 90MB/s. Read the rest of the press release below.
The exclusive Fortnite branded memory card for Nintendo Switch is designed to provide players with consistent and reliable storage as they drop into Fortnite, no matter how they play. The card has also been tested and approved for use with all Nintendo Switch Systems and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty to give gamers the peace of mind needed to land in command.
Inspired by the epic Skull Trooper (128GB) and legendary Cuddle Team Leader (256GB) Outfits, the exterior design of the cards pays homage to some of the rarest and most popular Outfits in the game. As a bonus, fans who purchase the card will receive a code to redeem the rare Angular Flow Wrap2, sure to mesmerize any squadmate.
