Update (9/14): NBA 2K18’s file size has updated on the Switch eShop. It’s now showing 22.9GB. That makes much more sense, and is in line with a rough estimate provided by the developers previously.
Original (9/13): With just a few days to go before launch, NBA 2K18 has been given a listing on the Japanese Switch eShop. We have the game’s file size as a result.
The base download for NBA 2K18 seems to be 6.8GB. However, the listing says that you need more than 6GB of additional storage space. Players are advised to prepare a microSD card (recommend more than 32GB) when you buying the game.
Even with this information, it would be a smaller download than we would have expected for NBA 2K18. We’ll let you know if we receive any further news about NBA 2K18’s storage on Switch.

All indications thus far point to NBA 2K18 being very solid on Switch. Aside from some graphical differences, the Switch version matches up well to its counterparts on other platforms.
In an interview with Gamereactor, senior producer Rob Jones discussed the approach to creating NBA 2K18 for Switch in a bit more detail. From day one, Visual Concept’s president spoke about making it “the same exact game that was on PS4 and Xbox One”. It goes without saying that doing so was no easy task.

We have more news about the Switch version of NBA 2K18 stemming from a hands on event that took place today.
First up, NBA 2K18 will be about 25GB. That puts it as one of the larger digital downloads on Switch, but if you have a big microSD card, it’s not entirely unmanageable.
We also have good news about updates on Switch. Nintendo is allowing developer Visual Concepts to push updates day and date with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. That means the Switch version won’t be forgotten, and will be receiving the same treatment as other platforms post-launch.
