Probably not "cartridges" as we knew them. Just dumb flash cards which have to be read into memory just like any other storage these days, not a direct bus plug-in which bypasses any loading process and allows them to pack hardware expansions into the game cartridge itself. (A surprising number of cartridge games included extra features like RAM expansions, auxiliary processing, etc. Star Fox is probably the most famous one to do that.)
