Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’s DLC File Size Is Much Larger On Wii U Than Switch

The first add-on content for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild arrives later this week, on June 30, and Nintendo’s Japanese website has revealed how much space the DLC pack will take up when it rolls out for Switch and Wii U. What’s striking about the file size, though, is how much larger it is for Nintendo’s older console.

On Switch, the Breath of the Wild Master Trials DLC takes up only 456 MB. On Wii U, however, the DLC pack weighs in at 3.7 GB. While it’s unclear why the DLC is considerably larger for the Wii U version, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened; players who purchased the game on the last-gen system also had to download a mandatory 3 GB update before they could begin playing.

Master Trials is the first of two planned DLC packs for Breath of the Wild, which can only be purchased together through the game’s $20 Expansion Pass. This DLC adds a more difficult Master Mode (which uses its own separate save slots), an assortment of new costumes and armor, and a Travel Medallion that lets players create a temporary fast-travel point on the map. The most notable addition, however, is the Trial of the Sword, a 45-room challenge that, once completed, fully awakens the Master Sword’s power.

The second round of DLC for Breath of the Wild, the Champions’ Ballad pack, isn’t slated to arrive until this holiday season, but Nintendo gave fans a brief glimpse at it during the company’s E3 2017 presentation earlier this month. That DLC pack will feature a new story chapter that revolves around the four champions from Link’s era–Daruk, Revali, Mipha, and Urbosa. The DLC will also launch alongside new Amiibo figures of each of the four characters.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
