Following the success of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on Nintendo Switch back in 2017, developer Monolith Soft has opted to bring the 2010 classic, Xenoblade Chronicles to the hybrid console, too. Called Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, the game features enhanced visuals, updated controls, remixed music and other quality-of-life improvements, as well as a new epilogue — Future Connected. If you’re wondering how much space all of this takes up on your Switch here’s Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition’s install size.
What Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition’s Install Size Is
Cutting right to the chase, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition’s install size weighs in at 13.6 GB on the Nintendo Switch. Keep in mind that this is the size of the file if you download it from the Nintendo eShop. For those looking to pick up a physical cartridge copy of the game, your install size will be significantly lower.
The large file size likely comes down to just how big Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is in terms of scale. Throw in enhanced visuals which take up a fair amount of space, as well as as the new Future Connected section of the game and it’s easy to see why the install size comes so large.
In comparison to other Switch games, Xenoblade Chronicles is pretty big. Even the enormous The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild only weighed in at 13.4 GB. That being said, Xenoblade Chronicles isn’t the biggest space hog for your Switch’s internal memory. That goes to NBA 2K20 that weighs in at a huge 32.9 GB.
