Nintendo Switch Gets 4GB RAM, All Thanks To Capcom

The Nintendo Switch, with 4GB RAM, sits right at the top when it comes to portable devices with the most internal memory. But, this wouldn’t have been possible without Capcom.

According to a report from GamesIndustry Japan, translated by Nintendo Everything, Nintendo initially sent out Switch’s hardware during its development phase to various developers for feedback.

Many developers said that the memory was too limited but it was Capcom that said they wouldn’t be able to work the RE Engine on the system with the limited memory capacity. And so, Nintendo expanded it to 4GB, as requested by Capcom.

Well, we’re glad that Nintendo was open to suggestions and listened to what the developers needed. A 4GB RAM is adequate to run many third-party games currently on the market – save for high end games such as The Witcher 3 or Red Dead Redemption.

That said, Capcom still leaves us in the dark as it has yet to reveal what kind of games it will include on the system.
