Nintendo Switch Digital Download Sizes Revealed.

A few game sizes have been revealed by the Japanese Nintendo website, and all we have to say is… If you’re going digital for the Switch, you’re going to need a bigger boat….

You can view the list below:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 13.4 GB
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 8.00 GB
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris – 1.09 GB
  • Disgaea 5 – 5.92 GB
  • Snipperclips – 1.60 GB
  • I Am Setsuna – 1.40 GB
  • Dragon Quest Heroes I & II – 32.00 GB
  • Nobunaga’s Ambition – 5.00 GB

As you can see from the information above, Dragon Quest alone takes up 32gb and seems as the system will take some memory up, you’re going to need a new SD card just for that.

The other file sizes aren’t to bad, but still after a couple of games you’re going to need extra memory. Does this effect whether your going to go digital or retail for the Switch?

I made the desicion that personally I would go retail for the switch, the game cartridges are small enough to get a little case for them, and I know there are going to be accessories available for this. Plus, it will probably be cheaper.

What do you think of the game sizes?




I love games, both video and table top. It's what I spend the majority of my free time doing. I love writing and mixing that with my gaming brings this website! I love reviewing games, I love the fact that I get to play games that most of the times I wouldn't have considered playing.
