We are only a few days away from the launch of Metroid Dread. It’s been a long time since we saw a new, original, 2D game in the series. Right now, expectations are at the highest point so far.

The file size for Metroid Dread isn’t quite as big as we initially thought.

After the game was announced at E3 2021, Nintendo immediately started taking pre-orders on the Switch eShop. The listed size at the time was 6.9GB. That wasn’t exactly massive to begin with, but it looks like the download has been reduced a week out from launch.

Metroid Dread is due out for Switch on October 8.
