With Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus set to hit the Nintendo Switch later this year, Bethesda has not only released the boxart for the game, but has also revealed that you’ll be needing a bit of free space on your Switch in order to play.
As with a number of other Switch games, the boxart reveals that the art features a bar at the top of the box that warns the game requires a download in order to play. There’s no specific amount of free space stated, but the bar does state that you might need a micro SD card. Wolfenstein II isn’t unique to requiring space on the Switch in order to play, as games like L.A. Noire also require space on the console.
Interestingly enough, the folks handling the port, Panic Button, also did the port for Bethesda’s other big title announced for the Switch in DOOM. The retail version of DOOM fit on a standard Switch cartridge (which clocks in at around 32GB), but still required around 13.2 GB of additional downloading in order to play. By comparison, the PC version of DOOM needed a beefier 77GB of space.
Wolfenstein II‘s release date for the Switch still hasn’t been announced, but with E3 around the corner, that seems like a perfect place to make the announcement.
