However, the game will be cheaper if you decide to download it from the Wii U eShop. In stores, the fighter will set gamers back 6,980 Yen, whereas a digital copy will be 6,280 Yen. That's a good sign, right?
What's interesting about the digital copy is the file size. It'll take up a whopping 16.7 GB of HDD Space; if you purchase the Premium console, that's just over half of your precious space gone.
It's still questionable whether this policy of cheaper retail downloads will make it outside of Japan, with 3DS eShop retail games in Europe, for example, typically more expensive than their boxed counterparts. If this pricing does come to the West, though, will you be tempted into more downloads? We may need to buy a hard drive sooner than we thought.
