Today, it was revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s download size will take up will take up 13.4GB of hard drive space on Switch.

Now, this number doesn’t sound very big, but when you factor in the fact that the Switch ships with 32GB of internal memory (which will already have some space taken up by the system’s operating system), it means that Breath of Wild will take up nearly half of the available space on the console. Not a smooth move if you ask me.

Luckily, during the Switch reveal, Nintendo did mention that you can expand the storage of your Switch via microSDXC cards, but obviously, that will cost you some extra cash flow.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is scheduled to release March 3, 2017 for the Wii U and Switch.
