Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope – Gameplay Presentation
Fortunately we already know what occupies Sparks of Hope on Nintendo Switch. We are talking about the game in digital format, since physical games do not take up space in the internal memory of the console.
So that, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is 7.1GB in size, as specified in its official Nintendo eShop file. This means that all those who buy the digital game will need this free space on their consoles.
It’s certainly not an excessive figure, seeing what other digital Switch games occupy. The original Mario + Rabbids was 2.9GB in sizewhich is quite small compared to this one.
Sparks of Hope even looks huge next to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and its Donkey Kong Adventure expansion. Both reached 4.4GB in sizewhich pales before the 7.1GB of this sequel.
We remind you that, in case you do not have an SD card for Switch, Sparks of Hope will occupy almost a quarter of the internal memory of the console (which is 32GB in the standard and Lite model).
Do you want more Rabbids? In addition to Sparks of Hope, Ubisoft’s cute and crazy rabbits will return in a new party game. It will be available on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope will hit stores next October 20, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. We remind you that you can now reserve the game at GAME, as well as your Cosmic Edition which includes two exclusive DLCs for the Ubisoft game.
