Captain Toad Announces Download Size

Large sizes and Toad don't mix. Nintendo got the memo and the data size for Captain Toad is small.

One of the games shown off at this years E3 for Nintendo was Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Treasure Tracker is another in the long line of "charming yet challenging" games from Nintendo. Toad hasn't had that many chances to be the star of his own game but is getting the chance with Treasure Tracker. If you didn't know, Captain Toad was first introduced to the Mario fandom in Super Mario Galaxy but didn't play the same as Treasure Tracker Captain Toad. The gameplay was introduced in Super Mario 3D World where the player was given the challenge of guiding our Fungus Captain to the star.

Treasure Tracker appears to have at least 70 levels for you to guide the good ship Toad but the question becomes "How big, data wise, could this game be?" You would think a game with massive boss encounters as well Shy Guys, Goombas, and Boos couldn't be small? It looks like Nintendo understands and the data size for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a measly 1.9 GB, small considering other Nintendo games have data sizes where you're encouraged to buy an exterior harddrive. If the game isn't too big, then the price won't be too high either and thus scoring a win for Nintendo.
