Super Mario 3D World’s download size revealed


Nintendo have certainly worked their magic with Super Mario 3D World, not only from the gloriously colourful gameplay footage that emerged yesterday, but also the fact that those purchasing through the Nintendo eShop will find that it weighs in at just 1702MB.

For comparison’s sake Sonic Lost World is 6619MB and Wii Party U takes 5406MB,
whereas The Wonderful 101 requires a sizeable 10,232MB. Even The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is every so slightly larger, needing 1792MB, yet how their surefire platforming-hit is such a small download is mystifying.

Super Mario 3D World releases for Wii U across Japan on November 21st, North America on November 22nd and Europe on November 29th.
