Nintendo Life, an online news site and reviewer for Nintendo-related stuff, has just published an article claiming that THe Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will be approximately 685 MB.
Now, 685 MB may not sound like a lot. Lots of 3DS games are a full 1 GB or more. However, do you remember how large Ocarina of Time 3D was?
481 MB. Over 200 MB smaller.

Now, I'm not an expert on what file sizes mean for games, but I find it interesting that a 2.5D game with, frankly, not that impressive graphics would be significantly larger than Ocarina of Time 3D, an already expansive game.
Does this mean that A Link Between Worlds will end up being relatively huge? Could it have the dozen or so dungeons of the SNES original? Is this going to be the biggest handheld Zelda ever?
Or am I reading too much into this?
P.S. My "Size of 3DS Games" feature has found a permanent home on reddit. If you are curious about the size of various 3DS titles, feel free to check it out!
