Paper Mario

Paper Mario: The Origami King looks like it could be the biggest adventure yet in the long-running RPG series, so how large is the game's file size? According to the current eShop listings in both the US and the UK, the game will require a total of 6.4 GB of space. Although, the Nintendo website rounds this up to 6.5 GB.

That doesn't seem too bad when you start comparing it to the digital file sizes of some other upcoming and recently released games. For example, The Wonderful 101: Remastered will require 7.6 GB, Xenoblade: Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a whopping 13.6GB, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is listed as 6.6GB, and The Outer Worlds takes up 9.8 GB.

The next chapter in the Paper Mario series will arrive on 17th July for $59.99 / £49.99 or your regional equivalent, and you can pre-purchase the game from the Switch eShop right now. If you need an extra incentive to take the digital route, you'll be able to preload the game ahead of launch and play it as soon as it goes live.
