The era of retail games on the eShop begins... kind of.
Order Up, released in Europe as a retail release last December on 3DS and in 2009 on Wii, will take up more than 310 megabytes worth of space on the Nintendo 3DS SD card. The game, which releases this upcoming Thursday, June 21, weighs in at a whopping 2,485 blocks equalling just over 310 megabytes worth of storage.
For a quick comparison, here are some other eShop heavy-hitters and their file sizes:
Mighty Switch Force: 1,800 Blocks (225 MB)
Let's Golf 3D: 1,520 Blocks (190 MB)
The Amazing Spider-Man Demo: 1,001 Blocks (125 MB)
The game took this writer about twenty minutes to download from the eShop.
