Splatoon 2” is that one major Nintendo Switch game fans have been waiting for this Summer ever since the system was formally revealed back in January. The upcoming game takes the fundamental elements of the first game and adds a few new stuff like weapons and modes to create a highly-anticipated sequel. With the game on the way, some fans have already been preparing the storage space for their hybrid console.

In line with this, Nintendo has already revealed the size for “Splatoon 2” which honestly doesn’t take up much space at all. Similarly, the game is already listed on the eShop to help give players a heads up about the game.

Furthermore, the third-person shooter will also be getting a special direct very soon.

‘Splatoon 2’ total space on the system

According to a Twinfinite report, the game will only take up 3.1GB of space on the Nintendo #Switch. This hardly takes up a lot of space and those without SD cards should still be able to download the game. However, Splatoon 2 will only take up the said amount if space if you choose to buy it digitally, so physical players won’t have to worry much about the game eating too much memory.

Splatoon 2” aims to further improve the original game by bringing in some exciting new content. While some may have argued that the game could have passed as a DLC, many fans were still pleased to know that the franchise would arrive on the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo Direct for the game

Incidentally, the game is also scheduled to receive a special Nintendo Direct before it launches later this month. Gematsu shares that the event is scheduled to launch on July 6 at 7:00 a.m. PT or 10:00 a.m. ET. The direct will be reminding players about the fundamentals of the game while also giving insight to the new features and modes that will be included.

Splatoon 2” will also come with some new weapons for players to use in the paint-filled battlefield, so that’s another thing to look forward to.

The upcoming game will have Amiibo support, online multiplayer, and even a single-player campaign for those who prefer to play on their own. However, take note that the main meat of the game lies with its online modes.

The original “Splatoon” game launched for the Wii U back in 2015. Since then, it has gained a lot of fans for its quirky design and fun gameplay. It wasn’t all that surprising when Nintendo decided to create a sequel seeing how successful the original game turned out to be.
