When New Super Mario Bros. 2 hits retails, fans will also be able to download the title. But just how much will the plumber fill?
Nintendo have yet to disclose any official usage data for the game, but figures have become public ahead of the title's digital release. Game sizes certainly do vary on the 3DS, with the more graphically intense projects eating up well over a 3GB, Capcom's Resident Evil: Revelations clocking in at 3.15GB. Others are by far more manageable, and the latest Mario platformer will offer a tasty adventure without cramming your 3DS storage.
2950 blocks will be required to store/run the game, which translates to around 370MB. Brain Training 3D, which will also be up for download, comes in at 1600 blocks (200MB).
The default 3DS memory solution, a regular SD card, carries 2GB of storage - plenty for a handful of 3DS downloads, apps and game saves. In the long run bigger cards maybe required for those games dominated by rich cinematics and sound.
