Those that are looking forward to playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will need to make sure that they have some storage space clear for Link’s open-air adventure.
Nintendo has confirmed that, as with Xenoblade Chronicles X, the large scale world has made Breath of the Wild one of the more technically demanding games on the console. Players will, therefore, need to make sure that they have 3GB free on either their Wii U or USB storage device.
With Monolith Soft’s open world RPG, Nintendo had released optional data packs that had been designed to speed up load times by installing parts of the game.
That had covered a Basic High-Speed Data Loading Pack, Enemy High-Speed Data Loading Pack, Player High-Speed Data Loading Pack, and Skell High-Speed Data Loading Pack. These each provided their own separate performance improvements, but collectively required nearly 11GB storage space.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release exclusively on Nintendo Switch and Wii U worldwide on March 3rd.
