A listing for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker has popped up on the Nintendo Switch's eShop, revealing that the file size of the game is considerably smaller than the original version on Wii U.

The fancy new Switch listing shows that you'll require 1.4 GB in free space to download the game - a very small amount by today's usual standards. The Wii U version released back in 2015 needed a still-not-so-whopping 1.9 GB for our favourite little mushroom fella' to grace our screens.

The numbers might not seem that different at first glance, but when you consider that a drop of 0.5 GB is actually over a quarter of the entire game, that's some pretty impressive stuff. Of course, the Switch version of the game is also coming with additional brand new content, with courses based on Super Mario Odyssey being present for the first time. The genius folk over at the 'Big N' have well and truly worked their compression magic once again.

Remember, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will be launching for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS on 13th July. Will you be wibbling and wobbling your way through these challenging courses once again next month? Let us know down below.
