Resident Evil Revelations Collection Needs a lot of Space on Switch

You’re going to need a sizable microSD card if you’re thinking of getting the Resident Evil Revelations Collection on Switch.

Yesterday, Capcom revealed its plan on bringing the Resident Evil Revelations titles to Nintendo Switch. They can be purchased together as the Resident Evil Revelations Collection for $40 at retail, or downloaded separately for $19.99 each. While the publisher revealed some of the Switch version’s exclusive features, they were mum on how much space the games require. Turns out, it’s a lot.

Capcom has updated the official Resident Evil Revelations Switch page to include the storage space required for each game when downloaded digitally. Basically, you’re going to want a microSD card:

  • Resident Evil Revelations (digital) requires 13GB of HD space
  • Resident Evil Revelations 2 (digital) requires 26GB of HD space

While it is possible to get around Resident Evil Revelation’s requirement by buying the retail version of the game, there’s no getting around Resident Evil Revelation 2’s space requirement. As the Switch only comes with 32GB of memory (only about 25GB is usable due to the OS), an additional microSD card is quickly becoming a necessity. Downloadable games are becoming bigger and bigger, and the on-board storage just isn’t cutting anymore.

Resident Evil Revelations Collection is out November 28 on Switch.
