Update [Tue 31st May, 2022 12:45 BST] It looks like some threads have crossed between the My Nintendo Store and the eShop. The file size for the Digital Deluxe Edition of Sonic Origins is much smaller than that recorded on the web version.

Instead, the Digital Deluxe version comes in at a much more reasonable 3.8GB. The regular version is also a bit smaller, at 3.5GB. Still bigger than Mania, but Origins is a collection of games with a museum, extra music, challenges, and cutscenes. This is also not a concrete number, but we just wanted to give you an idea of ​​the file size strength be.

Thanks to MattUmby on Twitter for pointing this out!

original article [Mon 30th May, 2022 13:30 BST] The collection of four classic Sonic games, Sonic Origins, will be released in just under a month, and we’ve got an idea of ​​how much free space you’ll need to have these four Mega Drive/Genesis games in one bundle.

Of course, it’s not that simple, is it? There are a few different digital versions of the game that caused confusion when the June release date was officially dropped. As you’d expect, the package won’t take up much space, but the standard and Digital Deluxe versions are a bit bulkier than you might think.

The standard version of Sonic Origins will be around 3.6GB. Surprisingly, that’s bigger than Sonic Mania (which is a tiny 390MB), Hollow Knight, and ARMS. The Digital Deluxe version is more than double that, coming in at an impressive 7.8GB, meaning it’s bigger than Sonic Forces and Sonic Colors Ultimate on the Switch. How did does the blue blur handle that?

The game includes Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic CD, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and will have its own story mode with new cutscenes, but you can only play as Sonic in this mode. However, those animations, cutscenes, and the extra DLC included in the Deluxe version have to do some extra work to help bolster its size.

We have until June 23 to clean up our SD cards to make room for Sonic and Friends on Switch. Will you grab this classic collection? Let us know in the comments.
