WB Clarifies LEGO City Undercover Storage Situation

There will be an update, but it won't be 13GB.

Warner Brothers has issued an updated statement about LEGO City Undercover's size requirements and is blaming misprinted box art for the confusion.

The statement reads as follows:

The information is listed incorrectly on the packaging of LEGO City Undercover for Nintendo Switch. Players who purchase a physical copy of LEGO City Undercover on Nintendo Switch at retail are getting the complete game, and do not need to download additional content to enjoy the full experience. An internet connection is not required to play the game. The only internet connection suggested is to download the typical content update patch.

We will have more details on the game's install once we can secure a copy.

Ok so the Xbox Marketplace shows that the game download will be approximately 18GB. On the eShop it's 7.1 GB. The Wii U version was 19GB.


Who's lying here?

Maybe there is better use of data compression on the Switch version due to the extreme need to conserve space.

That is an awful large amount compression going on, I'm thinking there was an error of some sort in the numbers.

I would guess there are texture differences, maybe the Xbox version has higher res textures.  Not sure about Wii U vs Switch however.

I mean....there's no way an open world Lego game can fit in 7GB. Just saying.

They fit Breath of the Wild into 13 GB, so I wouldn't be so sure about that.

You know I just filled up my ps4 hard drive immediately after buying the system. You buy a 500 GB ps4 and you get 408 GB. I was reading through some forums and people are conditioned tools.  I can reasonably expect 2 - 20 GB going to the OS, but not 100 GB. That's some bloat.
