Not long after the Switch version of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy was announced, multiple listings for the game began to appear online. At the time, online retail listings in North America suggested the physical copy would require a download, while there was no mention of this on the front of the European box art.
Now, with the launch just around the corner, a Reddit user who has acquired a copy of the game ahead of schedule has confirmed what exactly is going on with this upcoming release. The back of the box says the trilogy collection will require a download of at least 10 GB. To be more precise, the Switch's data management supposedly says the file download is 8.7 GB in size. To further clarify, this is an Asian copy of the game, featuring a European game card.
Based on this information, the European retail release will, in fact, require a download, even though it doesn't display the requirement on the front of its box art (see our previous post here). North Americans might also want to take note, as the above file size is the amount of free space required if you pick up a retail copy. Regardless of your region, it seems like a download will be impossible to avoid.
Will you still be picking up a physical copy of the game now that you know this? Tell us below.
