Enlarge / Golden era imagery like this takes up a lot of download space relative to the Switch’s internal storage.
If you’re hoping to download Rockstar’s L.A. Noire to your Switch later this month, you’d better be ready to invest in a microSD card for extra storage space (if you haven’t already). Rockstar has announced that the Switch port will be a 29GB download from Nintendo’s eShop, which exceeds the system’s built-in storage capacity of about 26GB (that’s 32GB minus about 6GB of reserved space for system software).
Buying the physical cartridge version of the game only ameliorates the storage situation a bit; Rockstar says that “the game will require a 14GB digital download containing required gameplay data as well as general bug fixes and improvements.” That also means you’d better have a decent Wi-Fi connection and some time available before you plan to start playing even the cartridge version of the game.
Don’t count on buying a cheap, low-speed microSD card for your Switch sleuthing, either; Rockstar says the game requires that any Switch SD storage “must have a read speed of at least 60 MB/sec.”
