Super Mario 3D World is just around the corner, and we can reveal how much space the game will take up if you opt for the digital download route.

The eagerly-awaited platforming epic clocks in at 1702MB, which isn't too bad when you consider that Sonic Lost World was a 8475MB download.

How has Nintendo managed to cram so much goodness into such a small download? We're not sure, but The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD was also quite a manageable size. Perhaps it's the Nintendo difference at work?
