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?

    As with most things, especially due to the small Hard Drive of the Wii U, I’ll be opting for Physical over dat Skyward Sword Pre-Order DLC

      Where do you pre-order from to get Skyward Sword DLC?

          Thanks, was gonna go through GameStop but their’s is OoT outfit instead, would much prefer SS instead <3

            I’m glad Ryan answered this for you. It took a bit to discover where the Skyward Sword set was, but yes, its Best Buy. As you said, GameStop has Ocarina of Time, and if you don’t know, Amazon has Twilight Princess.

  • Zelda Fan Guy

    Definitely going with retail, one reason, my internet is slow for downloads, the second is that then I wouldn’t have the nice game case and all that shiney goodness :p

  • Err, technically, 7090MB isn’t equal to 7.09 GiB, since a GiB (which is what most computers refer to as a GB, almost certainly including the Wii U) is actually 1024 MB.

    • CEObrainz

      Yep, it’s actually 6.9 Gigabytes, however even Google seems to suggest that it’s 7.09 instead of 6.9.

    I’ve never been a fan of digital downloads. There are a grand total of four times I’ve got a game digitally, and three of them were special deals where you couldn’t get a physical copy (Club Nintendo, Platinum Reward, and MK8 Deal). I’ll always opt for the physical copy of the game if that’s an option. This is no exception, especially considering 7 GB out of the Deluxe’s 32 GB… yea. Unless you use external storage (which I imagine people would have to do quickly)… yea.

    I don’t have enough space. I want the box anyway.

  • Duston D. Scott

    I prefer retail copies. I like to save room on my system and I just like having the physical copy.

  • Eve Summers

    Looks like I’m gonna need a hard drive for my Wii U now. lol

    I wish the Wii U came with at least a 128gb hard drive. I can’t buy any third party games cause they’re all like 12gb at least.
