The Wii U is about to get wonderful as the North American release of Platinum Games’ The Wonderful 101 inches ever closer. If you plan to download The Wonderful 101 from the Nintendo eShop in the coming weeks, you will need to make sure you have enough available HDD space on your Wii U or external HDD as the game will require a fair amount. On Aug. 27, we learned of the download size for The Wonderful 101.
Those intending to download Platinum’s latest game offering will need 10GB of available HDD space on their Wii U – 8GB owners will need an external HDD. Depending on your internet connection speed, the download could take between 2 to 3hrs to reach completion.
For comparison, Pikmin 3 required about 4GB worth of HDD space.
If you are attending PAX Prime this weekend, Nintendo will be selling the game early to attendees.
Nintendo of America will release The Wonderful 101 on Sept. 15 for $59.99.
