Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom File Size Reduced to 16GB Overnight

In a last-minute update, the file size for Nintendo’s upcoming game, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, has been reduced from 18.2GB to 16GB. Despite the change not being massive, it’s noteworthy as Tears of the Kingdom will still be the biggest Switch game from Nintendo when it launches next week.

Smaller but Still Big

The new file size still overshadows Nintendo’s current biggest game, Breath of the Wild, which comes in at 14.4GB. However, several other games from third-party companies are much larger in size than Tears of the Kingdom. For instance, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a game that was recently released, needed 155GB of free space on PC.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is among the most anticipated games this year. It is set to launch on May 12 as an exclusive for Nintendo Switch. Preorders for Tears of the Kingdom are available and have been open for some time, with the standard edition costing $70. In addition, a Collector’s Edition, which costs $130, is also available.


The reduction in the size of the Tears of the Kingdom’s file should come as great news for players. One of the best things about Nintendo’s games is that they offer an immersive experience without being too graphic-heavy and data-consuming. The new size of the game still allows for the captivating game experience that the Zelda franchise is known for.
