Kirby & The Forgotten Land Will Have the Biggest File Size in Series
It has been revealed that Kirby and the Forgotten Land will have some of the most extensive files in series history. Considering the game’s scale and the big world, this file size is not surprising.
Kirby’s Forgotten Land is a significant step forward for the series, as it marks the first 3D entry. The world is more important than ever, and Kirby has more to discover, even though levels still appear to be linear. The trailer shows new copy abilities and a 2-player co-op. The Forgotten Land’s 3D environment and the size of Kirby are also highlighted by the giant boss battles Kirby will face.
Nintendo lists the game’s file size at 5.8GB. This is via Nintendo Life. This file size is more significant than Super Mario Odyssey, 5.6GB. It is also twice as large as Kirby Star Allies, 2.8GB.
There are also Super Mario Odyssey and Kirby that are larger than Kirby. Shining Pearl and Pokemon Bright Diamond are 10GB, despite not being as large as Super Mario Odyssey. Metroid Dark is smaller than a Call of Duty Update at 4.1GB and runs at 60 frames per second. Call of Duty is a larger Metroidvania than Metroid Drag. However, it can run at 60FPS with a relatively small file.
The Forgotten Land and the world of Kirby are massive, as can be seen from the trailers. The latest trailer shows Kirby running through huge environments, similar to those in Super Mario Odyssey. This file size signifies that Kirby’s world and possible content will be significant. It would be even more impressive if the game received DLC either in free updates or paid. It’s not surprising Kirby; the Forgotten Land has been one of the most anticipated games in the series for the many advances it’s made.
