According to NiNTENDOMiNATiON on Twitter, the file size for the Japanese version of Hyrule Warriors is 7090MB, or 7.09GB. This is significantly larger than Wind Waker HD‘s 1.75GB file size, which NiNTENDOMiNATiON also previously reported.
It’s worth noting that the official website for Hyrule Warriors says that the file size is 7.8GB. However, it’s possible that this is the install size, while the download size is reduced due to compression. It remains to be seen whether or not the size will vary across the international versions of the game.
The hefty size of Hyrule Warriors is no surprise, seeing as it’s shaping up to be a huge game. Will you opt for a digital download over a retail copy?
