This week, Nintendo announced two big partnerships. First and foremost, Nintendo has announced that it will be teaming up with Western Digital Corporation. The global partnership will create Nintendo-licensed memory cards, which will be utilized for the Nintendo Switch. Western Digital will create microSDXC memory cards with 64 GB and 126 GB capacities. The memory cards will feature Nintendo Switch logos, as well as SanDisk logos.
The Nintendo Switch provides gamers with access to a wealth of downloadable content. Players have the option of upping their console’s storage with a microSD card. A microSD card is a good idea for players that download lots of digital games and content. Simultaneously, some games contain large amounts of data. These games will require a microSD card.
The Nintendo-licensed microSDXC SanDisk memory cards will be available at certain retailers starting in October of this year. Also, Nintendo announced that it was teaming up with Post Consumer Brands. Beginning this fall, Nintendo and Post fans will have an opportunity to win one of 500 Nintendo Switch Prize Packs.
Consumers just need to open a box of specially marked Post cereal. Inside, they’ll find a code. Consumers will be able to win a variety of prizes, including My Nintendo Platinum Points, downloadable rewards, and special downloadable wallpaper.
Codes will be available across 20 million Post Consumer Brands cereal boxes, including Honey Bunches of Oats, Honeycomb, Grape Nuts, Coco Roos, Marshmallow Mateys, and more. No purchase is necessary. The promotion will begin on September 1, 2017 at noon and will end on March 31, 2018. Those interested in learning more about the promotion can check out Nintendo’s press release here.
