The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is Nintendo's biggest Switch game ever based on its file size, surpassing the previous game, Breath of the Wild, and every other Switch game from Nintendo.

It is no secret that Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is one of the most anticipated games of 2023.

To celebrate the upcoming open-world action-adventure game, the Japanese publisher announced a Collector's Edition - as is the norm with many AAA games.

Reddit user bob4978135 (via VGC) discovered that Tears of the Kingdom has a file size of 18.2GB, which makes it the biggest Switch game of all time made by Nintendo. For comparison, the biggest Switch game from Nintendo currently is Breath of the Wild (14.4 GB).

Outside Nintendo Switch, file sizes for games on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC can be significantly larger, stretching to 100 GB and beyond.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will cost $69.99 when it’s released in the US on May 12, $10 more than usual for new titles by Nintendo.

All of this comes encased in a black "Collector's Edition" box. For $130, it leaves much to be desired. Especially considering that the Collector's Edition for the previous entry in the franchise

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had a more robust selection, including figurines. Regardless, players who plan to buy the Collector's Edition should do so when stock is available again.
