NBA 2K19 is now available to pre-order digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch, and with that, we now know how much space the game will require to download on the portable home console.

In total, you will need to clear 36.5GB – 31.5GB for the actual game and 5GB “on the system memory,” which we can assume will be for software updates and additional content.

“Attention: A microSD card (sold separately) with free storage space of minimum 32GB is required to download this game, plus 5GB on the system memory,” a warning reads on the Nintendo eShop listing. “You must have your microSD card inserted before beginning the download.”

Those that own NBA 2K18, NBA 2K18 Legend Edition or NBA 2K18 Legend Edition Gold can also receive a 10 percent discount.

The NBA 2K19 Standard Edition (£54.99) will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide on September 11th, with the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition (£84.99) to be available earlier on September 7th.
