Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS will be making its release in Japan very soon. September 13th to be exact. It can be expected that last minute details about the game are going to be rolling out. With the official packaging for the game being circulation among retailers, some of these details are being revealed, a major one being the size of the game.


An image of the game’s box has revealed the file size of the game: 2.1 gigabytes which converts 17,300 blocks. This is massive for a 3DS game, so those who have the original 3DS will definitely need a new SD card as it is larger than the 2 gigabyte card given complimentary with the system. Those who own a 3DS XL will be okay if they haven’t used up too much space on their SD card, as it will take up a little over half of it’s space.

This isn’t the largest 3DS game to hit shelves, but it definitely is on the upper quartile of file sizes. I personally would prefer to get the physical copy of the game so that I wouldn’t need to worry about file space, especially since I own the original 3DS with the 2GB SD card.

What do you think about this hefty file size? Are you still going to consider getting the digital copy? Let us know in the comments below!
