The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom File Size Revealed

Highlights

  • An official listing from Nintendo has confirmed the file size for the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom, releasing in September.
  • Players looking to pick up the newest Zelda game will have to reserve 6 GB worth of storage space on their Switch to download Echoes of Wisdom.
  • Echoes of Wisdom will mark several major shifts for the franchise, featuring Zelda as the protagonist and eschewing the traditional sword combat for Zelda's "Echo" copy ability.

Nintendo has revealed the file size players will need to reserve in order to download The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom, releasing this September. Nintendo shocked fans during last week's Nintendo Direct when the developer revealed the newest entry in the Legend of Zelda franchise, boasting a similar artstyle to the remakes of Link's Awakening. The iconic studio also confirmed that fans wouldn't have to wait long for their next adventure in Hyrule, with Echoes of Wisdom dropping in September. Now, fans awaiting the game's release are being given the chance to prepare their Switches.

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom marks a major departure for the franchise as the first traditional Zelda game without Link as the protagonist. Echoes of Wisdom revealed that players will instead be controlling the titular Princess Zelda in a reversal of roles that now sees Zelda journeying to save Link. The game will also spice things up with Echoes of Wisdom's main gimmick, with Zelda using her "Echo" ability to copy items and enemies in order to traverse the world. The newest Zelda adventure is reportedly set to be light on users' storage space, as well.

Nintendo Confirms The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom File Size

As reported by NintendoLife, the official listing on Nintendo's website has confirmed the file size for The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom. According to the Nintendo listing, Echoes of Wisdom will require players to free up 6 GB of space on their hard drive to download the newest Zelda game. The moderate file size comes at a similar scale to the Link's Awakening remake, with the 2019 remake of the Game Boy Zelda requiring 5.8 GB. The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom is expected to launch on September 26.

With only one trailer released, the newest Zelda game looks to bring back plenty of homages and nods to past entries in the franchise. Fans carefully inspecting the trailer have already discovered several similarities between Echoes of Wisdom's Hyrule and the Light World featured in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Echoes of Wisdom will also feature the return of a companion character traveling with the player, with the fairy Tri accompanying Zelda.

While the announcement of Echoes of Wisdom served as a major surprise, many fans are still asking about two unannounced Zelda games. Rumors have swirled in recent months about potential ports of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess to the Switch. Neither game currently features a playable version on the Switch, despite both games receiving HD remasters on the Wii U. While ports of the two GameCube-era Zelda games may not be coming anytime soon, Echoes of Wisdom looks to give players a brand-new unique adventure in Hyrule.
