Nintendo has started the pre-load option for Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey. By taking advantage of this, you can purchase and download most of the required data ahead of launch. It’ll essentially allow digital owners to begin playing as soon as the game is released.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey takes up 5,349 blocks of space. That amounts to 668.625MB.
