Mario Kart 8 Deluxe File Size Revealed
Check out how much space Mario Kart 8 deluxe will take up on your Nintendo Switch.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches in just a few weeks, and now the digital version's file size has been revealed. A listing on Amazon Germany has indicated the game will take up 6.75 GB if you download it to your Nintendo Switch.
That means purchasing the game digitally will take up 21% of the Switch's 32 GB internal storage--though that proportion will be slightly higher if you take into account memory space taken up by system settings and the console's operating system.
By comparison, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes up 13.4 GB on Switch, while the original Wii U version of Mario Kart 8 is around 8.2 GB. If you're already struggling for space on your Switch, you'll be glad to hear the device supports memory cards of up to 2 TB.
