Again^ Galaxy too up 1.3 GB.

Considering the jump from SD to HD, and the fact that Miyamoto even stated that this game isn't re-defining 3D Mario, it's probably using very little quality resources. If it were using much higher quality resources, it would have been much bigger, despite compression techniques. I would like to see a game with higher quality assets in the future, to really push the system.

Amazing part of this, is how over half the game can fit on the RAM...

Nintendo separates their RAM allocation into two caches on the dies that allow for direct access so you can do some mental gymnastics to get everything running very smoothly when it comes to that

Also I dont know where you got it in your head that this game is not "redefining 3D Mario" from because according to Miyamoto and the team it for all intents and purpose is.

The game is using high res textures, they're simple but hi res

Obviously we want to be able to see the individual mushrooms crumbs in mario's mustache, the goomba remains on the bottom of his shoes and of course some upskirt peach action to be able ot count the individual strands of lace on her undergarments.

Otherwise its not "hardcore" and just another kiddy game.  HD only counts for mature things, not cute things.



Irtupido be satisfied with your reflections and peachi's fiery design

Most modern games balloon in size due to cutscenes and voice overs. Nintnedo has still refused to buy into either of those things and use them in their games. This is why their games remain tiny.

Metroid Other M is almost 8 GB
Xenoblade is around the same
Brawl is 7.8 GB
Other Wii games like Metroid Prime 3 and Skyward Sword are around the 4 GB mark
Heck the first Mario Galaxy is 2 GB iirc

This is an anomaly, and who knows what black sorcery Nintendo is using. 


Brawl had a lot of cutscenes...and they were long as hell.

Hey, at least we get to see Peach get wet in the rain, presumably... ;)



And people complain saying 32GB isn't enough..



That's impressive. Seems strange to me that all the PS4 and Xbone games are weighing in at 50GB.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

What is the largest first-party Nintendo game in file size? When can we expect a 10+ GB game from them? When X releases? Or SSB4?

Metroid Prime Trilogy is the biggest so far, at 7.45GB, followed by Metroid Other M at 7.28GB, then Smash Bros Brawl at 6.77GB. (I think the lesson here is that Samus's character model takes up a lot of GB... ;) )

X will probably exceed this easily.
