The Nintendo Switch is the exact reason I bought this card. Just pop it in the micro SD card slot behind the kickstand, then go into system settings and format the memory card and you are good to go. I have dozens of downloaded games and have never had an issue with this card. Just beware though, as with all memory cards the amount of space stated and the amount of usable space are different. Despite this being sold as a 200 GB card it actually has 183 GB of usable space; all memory cards are like this.
