New Video Leak Shows Nintendo Switch “Flash Cart” Device That Stores Multiple Games

The device might not be allowed by Nintendo.

Story Highlights

  • A new leak making rounds online shows Switch using a “Flash Cart” device to store multiple games.
  • It is a new storage that is supposedly being made by a third party and is slated to launch in the future.
  • It supports all firmware, all console types, and all regions. Nintendo could take action against its use.

It appears that Nintendo Switch could be getting a new type of “flash cart” storage device in the near future. A video leak has started spreading to the far reaches of Twitter and forums online that reveals a beta-tester using the new storage device. It is rumored to support multiple games on a single cartridge, as shown in the video. The report was shared by the @AfterTimeX Twitter page, which first received the exclusive video.

The video features the beta tester manually adding and taking out the cartridge to confirm its workability. The tester further uses the storage by moving through the various roms on the system. These games appear to be booted up and ready to play by using a single storage. Such a feat is rarely done on the Switch.

Although it was long overdue, we were a bit skeptical, so we ask for some kind of proof. To our surprise, this person sent us soon after a video demonstrating the product in use. And it seems perfectly legit,” mentions the post.

The sophisticated product appears to be a major upgrade to the current Switch storage system. Moreover, it will be quite transparent and flexible for all sorts of models and software. The tweet mentions that it will support all regions, all firmware, and all Switch models, confirming its adaptability and compatibility with every user of the handheld. Additionally, the device seems perfectly legit and shows no signs of issues or malice in the video.

The product has been reported to be ready for sale. However, the first batch of these “flash cart” storage devices will be shipped in January 2024. The third party behind the new storage device will likely reveal more information soon as the days of its shipment draw nigh. The Twitter page has confirmed that the group behind the video has promised more updates for the alluring storage system.

The credibility of the new system seems palpable. A slew of Switch gamers are also hyped for the new storage, but others have shown concern. Historically, Nintendo has reacted quite aggressively against these sorts of products for Switch and other consoles. It does not commonly allow the sale of these kinds of devices and can also go against manufacturers for producing them.

On the other hand, the device might be allowed if the Nintendo titles are not illegally obtained since it can be used to smoothly shift through them without dealing with many cartridges for the roms. Nintendo has currently not commented on the new in-production device.
