    Any microsd is good enough. Its class rating is really for load times and transfers

    It'll work fine.. Would I wanted to use it hell no, that's painfully slow writing and the load times would suck ass too. I'd go for atleast 50MB/sec

    Should work fine, I have a cheap one and the specs are similar. The loading times in BOTW is painful thou. So I installed the NSP version on internal memory.

    As others have said, it will be incredibly slow. I had a card with a 45MB/s read speed, and it took over a minute just for Skyrim to get to the opening screen. Then another minute or so to load the save. Your card is 3 times slower than that, so it’ll be rough :(

    If you can, grab something from Amazon or anywhere reputable with a read speed around 80-100MB/s. It’s only around $20 for 64GB.

    Walmart even has a Sandisk Ultra 128GB on sale for like $24. It’s 80MB/S transfer speed. Not sure how much longer the sale will last, but that’s a great deal.

    Write speed only matter much when you want to transfer huge files to your sd card, and with your card you'll be waiting hours.

    That's really slow. You can run XCIs, but loading time in bigger games will be rough.

    Well you add more than 2 seconds for loading time (+ the SX loader add more seconds) and some games need a minimun of 60Mbps of read speed.
