Pikmin 3 Deluxe is finally here on the Nintendo Switch, allowing people to experience this Wii U classic with some shiny new features. If you’re planning on purchasing this game digitally via the Switch eShop, you might be wondering how large Pikmin 3 Deluxe’s download and install size is.
Download & Install Size for Pikmin 3 Deluxe
You might need to clear up some space on your Switch because the download and install size for Pikmin 3 Deluxe on Switch is not as tiny as the adorable Pikmin that inhabit planet PNF-404.
You’re looking at around 6.5 GBs for Pikmin 3 Deluxe, which does not even compare to modern AAA titles such as Call of Duty: Warzone or Marvel’s Avengers, but as far as Switch games go, this one is pretty big.
For comparison’s sake, Splatoon 2 takes up 5 GB on Switch; Super Mario 3D All-Stars takes up 4.8 GB; Super Mario Maker 2 takes up 3.1 GB, and then we have Animal Crossing: New Horizons with a whopping 6.9 GB thanks to all of the seasonal updates and such.
It’s worth pointing out that this install size for Pikmin 3 Deluxe could change in the future if Nintendo decides to release any patches or updates to squash any bugs or glitches; these can increase or even decrease the file size.
If you don’t have the required storage space on your Switch, you will need to either get a larger MicroSD card or you will need to delete some other games that you don’t play anymore.
