Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Switch will only be 6.3GB, download required also removed from boxart.

Edit, turns out still a download for retail, even worse than it was on PS4/X1. Guess new boxart was just a Nintendo error.
Got Spyro for switch early and playing it...looks nice and everything BUT......

....not only there's a 10gb download with spyro 2 and 3, but the patch has also spyro 1 past the first world...after completing the artisan world at 100%, i'm here waiting for the download to finish because that's all i can do now...

Should have put "listed as only 6.3GB" in the title....
Was updated on the Nintendo page, at bottom, having it listed as only being 6.3GB, which is around the same size as the Crash Trilogy and CTR Switch versions. Edit: Pre-load is also up on eShop.




Been a interesting history with this game and file size, started with over 65GB on PS4 then was updated to around 35GB, and now they got it down to 6.3GB for Switch according to the listing. Looks like the game won't be a huge cost on your Switch SD card, and if you go physical looks like you may be getting the complete game this time, I know some people like Yoshi Yoshi will be excited for that if so.

Wait what? If this isn't fixed for PS4 with a newer phsyical release or classics, I'll definitely get the Switch version.

6.3GB for all the games? That seems kind of unlikely somehow even for the Switch, or am I wrong?
 

Rest

All these years later I still chuckle at what a fucking moron that guy is.

The biggest files are going to be upgraded art assets. Remember, each of these games originally fit on a single CD.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

So.. the Swich version is just the first world and that's it, if you do not download the patch? That's nasty. Also, does the game still have such a hurtful framerate as it did in the Gamescom demo?

Damn! That's worse than how they handled PS4/X1 version, you at least got the full first game as you waited for the rest to download. I'll add your post to the OP. :messenger_crying:

adding proof...first of all, there IS the download requirement on the boxart


second, here's what happens when you try to leave the artisan world (it's in italian, but it says "to access this content, a download is necessary")


BONUS POINT: the inside of the box is sad


EDIT: no, it actually runs pretty nice so far on portable mode, i've yet to plug it on the tv but....i'm here waiting to play the rest of the game <_<

Toys For Bob needs to get their shit together and put these games on the disc/cart already. Vicarious visions even put out revised discs with the dlc on the disc and Toys for bob won't even put in the effort to get the games on the disc.

I am a collector and without a full game it's worthless to me. I like to play my games in 20 years and give it to my future kids etc.

Im so confused.

What platform should i get this on? Switch or PS4. I do plan on getting the PS5.

Both require a download, I believe the entire first game is at least on disc with the PS4Xbox versions compared to just the first world on Switch. I grabbed the xbox version after I vowed to never get it just love Spyro to much I’m sick with myself over it 😂
