FIFA 18 Switch file size

Posted on September 20, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

We’ve already posted file sizes for two Switch games today, so let’s throw another one into the mix. According to Nintendo’s UK website, FIFA 18 is 14301.53MB. In other words, it’s just over 14GB.

Comparing that amount to NBA 2K18, another recent sports game for Switch, the initial download was 6.8GB. However, an additional software update for 2K Sports’ game takes up 16.1GB. NBA 2K18 save files also eat up 5GB.

Currently we’re only aware of the single, initial download for FIFA 18, which is the aforementioned 14GB. If we hear anything else, we’ll let you know.

    I do not understand why keep posting 2k file size, the modes they put in 2k are separate full game by itself, meaning my career mode where you build your own character and go through a story mode is its own game, then you have my gm mode which is a whole other game itself, it’s nothing like the basketball games of the past where you just play a regular season, and the worse part i do not know if anyone on this site ever play 2k or just like to complain, it’s a good game which you can do a lot for 60, by time you finish both modes you put in same amount of hours like xenoblade 100 hours to 300 hours, file size is not an issue, play it before judge it

      I don’t really think people are judging the game itself, i uzually hear good things about it, they’re mainly judging that file size

      don’t worry, nobody is criticizing the game, just the size. the game is very good

  • That’s a decent size for a sports title. Hopefully it stays around that range.

    It will be interesting to see if EA opted for the 8GB cartridge the way 2K did for NBA2K18. I do find it surprising that FIFA is 13GB smaller than NBA2K18. I wonder if EA compressed things like audio files that 2K didn’t?

      The only thing got compressed at EA is their customer service.
      My origin account got locked up and they’re not reachable (at most part of the world) with email and chat.
      They insisted on voice call like it’s the 90s.

    Actually, since 1GB consists of 1024MB, it’s just under 14GB.

    Edit: never mind, searched Google and both 10³kB and 1024kB can be correct, don’t know which one it is in this case.

      There are some misconceptions here, which is why there’s another unit for a binary scale.

      1 GB is 1000 MB.
      1 GiB is 1024 MiB.

    I expect more and more news about games size to dominate.
    What with the tens of gb games coming, the 128-256gb microsd will filled up fast.
    And it’s not even switch first anniversary yet.

      Even the “Super salesman” PS4 didn’t had this amount of games in it’s early lifespam.

      This is only a problem for those who plan to buy their games exclusively digitally. Nintendo currently has three different cartridges that developers can put their games on; 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. If developers are going to take the 2K route and only pony up the cash to order the 8GB carts, then we consumers will have to purchase our own storage (which you do on PS4 and Xbox One right out of the box by paying the higher cost of those consoles because the hard drive is built into the console.) But here’s the thing about Switch’s storage capacity, if you buy physical, there’s not a lot of games that won’t fit on the system without the need for an SD card. Lets take a look at some of the biggest “AAA” that have been released this year from companies NOT named Nintendo:

      NBA2K18 is 27GB. That whole game would fit on the 32GB cartridge.

      FIFA is 14GB. That whole game would fit on the 16GB cartridge.

      Destiny 2 is 29GB. That whole game would fit on the 32GB cartridge.

      Horizon is 39GB. That game would only need to use 7GB of the Switches approx 25GB of available storage so still no SD card required.

      For Honor is 32.73GB. That whole game would fit on the 32GB cartridge.

      Nier Automata is 45GB. That game would only need to use 13GB of the Switch’s 25GB of available storage so still no SD card required.

      Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is 49.22GB. That game would only need to use 17GB of the Switch’s available storage so still no SD card required.

        There’s a very slim chance of people buys switch and only got 1 game installed apart from the sports games crowd.

          I bought mine and until FIFA 18 released only game on it is Zelda. Nothing else really takes my fancy. Which isn’t a problem as Zelda rocks and is huge.

    Shame there’s no FIFA 18 demo for the Switch.
