Only a few weeks after the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo seems to have updated the file sizes on the official game page yet again.
No longer the “biggest” digital release on the system, the Japanese video game company appears to be cutting back from around 18GB to around 18GB. 16 GBeShop listings in the United States, Japan, and other regions have approximately 15.9GB of free space.
Of course, this could change between now and next month’s release of the game. May 12.
Compared to Link’s original Switch out, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ( 14.4GB), Tears of the Kingdom is still officially the larger of the two games. In general, other recent games like Xenoblade Chronicles 3 only take up about 14GB, so it’s still a fairly large file size.
The price of Tears of the Kingdom has also increased by $10. $69.99 USD (or the regional equivalent). Nintendo has said they won’t trend this and it will be decided on a case by case basis.On this occasion you will certainly get your money’s worth.
