Take a look at how itty-bitty the Nintendo Switch cartridge is

A whole bunch of side-by-side comparisons for ya

The Nintendo Switch console is a tablet on the smaller side, and its cartridge-based games are sized appropriately. But it’s hard to gauge just how appropriately tiny the Switch cartridge is until you’re holding it in your hands — or holding it right up next to a bunch of other familiar objects.

To get a much better sense of the size of the adorably small Switch cartridge, we placed it side-by-side with a ton of different objects. That includes other Nintendo cartridges from throughout the years (along with a special appearance from a PlayStation Vita game), but it also includes some very unrelated things we found lying around the office.

Follow along to see our new favorite game cartridge in all of its baby-sized glory.

The Nintendo Switch — and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the cartridge that stars in this gallery — hits retail March 3.
