Being able to take the Switch anywhere, it makes sense you’d want to have easy access to your favorite games at all times. For some this has made it a great console to jump to digital on, turning the investment from shelf space to file size. Now, it looks like we know how much of the latter you’ll need to have the most anticipated Switch game of all at your beck and call.

According to the Japanese My Nintendo store, the digital version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will require 16 GB of free space. That’s half your system’s available memory right there, though with the amount of content in Smash Ultimate it’s not unexpected. For comparison, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U takes up 15.7 GB of space.

As of this writing, there are some great deals on Micro SD cards of varying sizes. Those of you going digital or looking to make some room, now might be the time to invest so that that December 7th release can go as smooth as possible.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
