The countdown to the release of “The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom” on May 12 has entered. Nintendo confirmed today (8) that the full version of the game requires 16.3GB of hardware space.
For players who purchase the download version, be sure to reserve more than 16.3GB of space in the hardware storage space of the Nintendo Switch console. If the usable capacity is insufficient, you can confirm or delete the data in the console “Settings” > “Data Management” to free up space.
16.3GB of free space is required to download the download version of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
If there is not enough free space on the main unit or microSD card, you can organize (delete) software data from “Settings” → “Data management” on the main unit. https://t.co/9upQtDN6nK
