    Looking all over I can't find an answer. It looks like an SD card from all I can see.

    Yes, all I can find is "Big YouTuber PewDiePie Licks Switch Cartridge Covered In Rat Poison!!"

    It's proprietary. It may be just an SD card, but it will be modified so it doesn't work on anything but the Switch.

    No, it's a different shape/size from an SD card and uses a different sort of connector. It looks similar in some ways but it's not just an SD card in proprietary form.

    The PS Vita card looks like an SD Card as well but it isn't. They might use similar technology. You might be able to do an adapter for it (not that it's needed for the Switch since it got a microSD) but that's about it.

    The (additional) slot is MicroSD, thankfully. (see Sony Vita's demise for what happens when you offer far better hardware than 3DS but have to subsidise it with overpriced memory).

    Oh and their memories gets corrupted faster than you can freaking blink. And they're so damn overpriced and near impossible to find bigger sizers now days.

    I'm curious however how big the games can be on the cartridges. BOTW are 13gb, so they can definently take a hefty size.

    You guys are hilarious. It's a propriety version of an SD card, with write-protection enabled, and dipped in Denatonium Benzoate.

    Random fact: the Gamecube memory card actually was just a propriety shaped SD card.
