Next Level Games' Mario Strikers: Battle League launches this Friday, and fans got their first hands-on with the game's online play over the weekend. But just how big are the numbers for the upcoming outlandish soccer game?

Well, it seems like you won't need to make a ton of room for the game's initial kick-off, as Mario Strikers will take up 1.8GB of your Switch's storage. That's... not much! Not far off of Mario Tennis Aces' 2GB at launch, but a little off of Mario Golf: Super Rush's initial 4.2GB size.

Of course, we know the Battle League will be getting some free post-launch updates which will likely buffer that file size up a bit. But it's good to know that you likely won't need to make a whole lot of space for what's shaping up to be a cracker of a game.
