Pokémon Legends: Arceus is called to be the great Pokémon game for the beginning of 2022 or even the entire year itself, being a title that will completely change the classic mechanics of the saga to fully immerse ourselves in a world similar to that seen in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. However, there is data beyond the content of the game that many will be willing to know, among which is included the size that the digital version will occupy.
Under this premise, a few hours ago we were able to know what Pokémon Shiny Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will occupy, which require a large amount of space on the internal disk of the Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Legends Arceus doesn’t fall short either, giving us even a figure higher than that of the two mentioned and being about 13 GB what it will occupy.
Legends Pokémon Arceus is one of the heaviest games on Nintendo Switch
Of course, it must be clarified that, contrary to what happens with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S, this will only affect the digital version, so that if you have it in physical format, you will not have to reserve more space for it than that of the updates that arrive later, which, in general, they usually do not exceed 2 GB.
Be that as it may, this turns Pokémon Legends Arceus into one of the heaviest titles on Nintendo Switch, surpassing others like the aforementioned Zelda, as well as Super Mario Odyssey. On the other hand, it should be noted that this data it has been possible to know Thanks to the game card in the American eShop.
Therefore, we will have to prepare our consoles for the next January 28, 2022 date on which Pokémon Arceus Legends to be Released Exclusively for Nintendo Switch, being also the title with which the figure of 900 Pokémon has been reached in the National Pokédex.
