Announced during the latest Nintendo Direct, Mario Strikers: Battle League Football continues to amaze. Not only did everyone not expect a new game in the series, now frozen for 15 years and preparing to land on the Nintendo Switch in June 2022, but they were also surprised to discover its actual size.

In an era in which all games are now very heavy, as evidenced by the over 100GB even for some simple first person shooters, Mario Strikers: Battle League Football is actually a much lighter product than normal. As announced by Nintendo, the new sports spin-off of the best-known character in the world of video games will weigh just 3GB. The information can be verified right on the Nintendo Switch eShop and surprised precisely by the size of the game data.

Is (": visible")) {console.log ("Edinet ADV adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_gamedivision_d_mh2_1 slot id: th_gamedivision_d_mh2"); } Actually, however small the game file may be, the size doesn't surprise us that much. Nintendo Switch games, apart from some exceptions especially from third parties, tend to be for obvious reasons much smaller than the competition. This is certainly due to the inability of the Nintendo console to reproduce textures at a higher resolution and to a long series of technical details that are obviously reduced due to less performing hardware. Despite this, the small size of a football game (or rather, football as the Japanese giant understands it) can only surprise us.

Mario Strikers: Battle League Football will officially debut on June 10, 2022, exclusively on Nintendo Switch. The title will obviously be compatible with all console models, including the Lite one. Even if the game is still far from release, we remind you that all this information is not definitive but knowing the modus operandi of the Kyoto house it is very likely that it will not change over the course of these months.
