It seems The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will take up a bit of the Switch’s hard drive space.

According to IGN, Zelda: Breath of the Wild will take up 13.4GB of hard drive space on the upcoming Switch when downloaded. It is quite a bit of space as the Switch comes with 32GB of storage, a chunk of which will be taken up by the console’s operating system. This means that Breath of the Wild will take up almost half of the system’s space. It is a good thing that Nintendo has announced that the Switch’s memory can be expanded using microSDXC cards.

Last week, it was announced that Breath of the Wild will release with the Switch this March. Nintendo ended last week’s Switch presentation with a new trailer for Breath of the Wild, which gave gamers more to crave. The trailer also featured a surprise for eager fans: voice acting. While Link was still silent, we were able to hear the voices for a variety of characters in the game.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release on March 3rd for the Nintendo Switch. The Switch will release on the same day, and will run gamers $299.99.

    You do realize that’s only if you buy it digital right?

      We apologize if there was any confusion. The article has been updated to include that the 13GB is in fact for the downloaded version.
