3DSWare File Size May Be Bigger Than WiiWare
Posted by James Newton
Let's hope so
WiiWare's restrictive 40MB file size has caused a few casualties in its time, with promising projects making the jump across to other formats where there's a little more room to breathe. While we still don't know much about 3DSWare, other than this fetching (if temporary) 3DSWare logo, a new interview with Nnooo's Nic Watt suggests we may see a larger limitation on the handheld's downloads.
Referring to the studio's episodic WiiWare shooter escapeVektor: Chapter 1, Watt said the game will be released as a bundle on 3DSWare rather than split into chapters. Interviewer Daan Koopman was quick with the follow-up question:
Daan Koopman: But since you want to put all those chapters together is it reasonable to say that the limits on the eShop are bigger than what we have seen before?
Nic Watt: I can't possibly comment on that at the moment, but we had an interesting conversation with Nintendo about it.
With Nintendo promising to improve the eShop we certainly hope an increased file size is one of the planned improvements. We'll keep you up to date.
