Nintendo of Japan has officially published containing download sizes for some of their upcoming Switch games today. Feel free to check out the list below (via Gamespot):

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 13.4GB
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 8GB
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris – 1.09GB
  • Disgaea 5 Complete – 5.92GB
  • Snipperclips – 1.60GB
  • I Am Setsuna – 1.40GB
  • Dragon Quest Heroes I & II – 32GB
  • Nobunaga’s Ambition – 5GB

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 1

As you can tell, most of games individually don’t take up too much room. Barring Dragon Quest Heroes I & II (which takes up a hefty 32GB), the download sizes seem pretty accommodating. Unfortunately, the problem, as was the case with the Wii U, lies within the Switch’s internal memory – a rather small 25.9GB of usable space.

As always, Switch owners with enough money to spare can seek out external memory sources (no more USBs this time around, thank goodness). Those who aren’t willing or able to shell out the cash for SD cards, however, may just want to stick to physical copies of the games that they intend to buy.

The Nintendo Switch arrives next month, on March 3. Will you be picking up Nintendo’s latest system for yourself? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
