3DS Digital Download Sizes Revealed

With the advent of digital download from Nintendo fast approaching with New Super Mario Bros. 2 being the first day one digital download title, we thought we’d see how other games fare in the size stakes and what a game, in size, will be worth.

  • Resident Evil Revelations tips the scales at a whopping 3.17GB (Gigabytes)
  • Kid Icarus Uprising 1.61GB
  • Mario Kart 7 0.66GB
  • Super Mario 3D Land 0.31GB
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 0.47GB
  • Starfox 64 3D 0.63GB

As you can see, some of these games would take more than a while to download so it’ll be interesting to see if Nintendo releases download friendly versions, maybe where the code has been optimised? That’s unlikely though.

Bit of a worry when you take into account that the SD card Nintendo have included is only 2GB in size which seemed generous at first but now has us searching for the cheapest 32GB card we can get our hands on.

This card on Amazon seems like the best bet though.
