We take a look at the install size for one of the biggest upcoming releases for Switch, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. No need to worry. Your SD card is safe.
Ok, so you’ve decided to buy a re-release of the Wii U game Super Mario 3D World that's coming to Switch in February, but this time comes with an additional expansion called Bowser’s Fury, so you’re probably wondering if you’ll have to delete something to free up space on your microSD card.
With the addition of a new expansion, you will need 2.9GB of free storage to install. Not so terrible for an essential exclusive like this. For reference, the original game was just 1.7GB on Wii U.
While we don’t know much about Bowser’s Fury expansion, Nintendo explained that it’s a ‘short action-packed standalone mode’, which will probably be short but cute.
The expansion will offer free-roam movement, and we saw a glimpse of it in the trailer, as well as a couple of additional gameplay details, such as that Bowser Jr can be controlled by the second player, for example.
"Mario is sent to Lake Lapcat, where everything is cat-themed—and Bowser has gone berserk! Team up with Bowser Jr. to help his dad chill out in this short but action-packed standalone adventure.
In this free-roaming adventure, you’ll travel to various islands in Lake Lapcat to collect Cat Shines to reignite lighthouses and clear darkened terrain. Watch out for Bowser, though!"
To match Bowser's might and go toe-to-toe against him when he's in 'full Fury' mode, Mario will have to go full-Super Saiyan and transform into the mighty Giga Cat Mario with the help of Giga Bell.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is coming to Nintendo Switch on February 12.
