Here’re Your Preliminary Download Sizes For Switch Games

Prior to the launch of the Switch, a number of game’s download file sizes have been confirmed from Nintendo’s Japanese site. As every Switch system comes with 32GB of storage space (in reality, 26GB are reserved for the user), the file sizes range from reasonably small to too big for the system alone. One game, Dragon Quest Heroes I – II, requires a micro SD card larger than 32 gigs alone.

Here are all the available file sizes for the Switch’s early line-up, in no order:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 13.4GB
  • Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – 5GB
  • I Am Setsuna – 1.4GB
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris – 1.09GB
  • Disgaea 5 Complete – 5.92GB
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 7GB ‘or more’
  • Snipperclips – Cut it out, together! – 1.6GB ‘maximum’
  • Dragon Quest Heroes I-II, 32GB

Nintendo’s Joy-Con-heavy party game 1-2-Switch has yet to have its download size revealed, though it’s likely to be small due to its low-end assets and visuals mostly made up of full-motion videos.

As these sizes pertain to Nintendo’s Japanese audience, details are likely to change for the west. European gamers are likely to experience larger file sizes than most due to the need to include multiple languages (also true of Wii U and 3DS games).
