Earlier this year, Nintendo confirmed via the Switch eShop page for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom that the open world game would require 18.2 GB of storage, making it the largest first-party Switch game to date.
Ahead of the soon-to-be released game, the Japanese publisher has now updated its page, lowering the storage requirements and freeing up a few gigabytes. According to the game’s updated eShop page, it now requires 16 GB of free storage.
Of course, this still means that Tears of the Kingdom has the largest file size for a first-party Switch game to date, and it still exceeds the size of Breath of the Wild (which stands at 14.4 GB). And while 16 GB is still pretty heavy by Switch standards, it is of course surpassed by the size of games on PCs and consoles.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will be released on May 12.
