The Wii U supports full game downloads — anything from retail games to indie titles can be downloaded on the Wii U eShop. Obviously, full retail games will take up a lot more space than indie titles. We got a list of the Wii U games available for download, and how much space they take up. Remember, the Wii U Basic set only has about 3 GB left for game downloads, while the Deluxe version has 25 GB free space for games and media. You can of course store your games and downloads on external drives. You can find the full breakdown below. What’s interesting to see is that the indie title Trine 2 actually takes up more space than New Super Mario Bros U. Wii U Indie games Nano Assault Neo: 81 MB Chasing Aurora: 103 MB Little Inferno: 114 MB Mighty Switch Force HD: 525 MB Trine 2: 1941 MB Wii U retail games Scribblenaust Unlimited: 1378 MB ESPN Sports Connection: 1645 MB Game Party Champions: 1719 MB New Super Marios Bros U: 1733 MB Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013: 1913 MB Nintendo Land: 2852 MB Madden NFL 13: 4840 MB Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge: 5443 MB ZombiU: 5737 MB Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed: 5898 MB Rabbids Land: 7383 MB FIFA 13: 7490 MB Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two: 7522 MB Darksiders 2: 9574 MB Sing Party: 12 GB Just Dance 4: 15 GB Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper: 16 GB Assassins Creed 3: 17 GB Be sure to also check out the best selling Wii U eShop games during the first week. local_offer Nintendo wii u wii u eshop stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when Shamar Clark that weak,we need more meromy JumpMan just buy an external hard drive. Leo Wright Wow check out those last 4! Someone with a Wii U basic could get all 4 lol Mickey Mouse Glad I got a 2TB usb drive, cause I’m gonna need it. Fred What kind did you get? How is it working for you? I ask because As you can read above, I need one to download the 24GB NBA 2k13 Nintedward-3DS-WiiU How many discs does AC3 have on the xbox 360 ? The possibilities are limitless for Nintendo With Multi layer discs and HDD’s…. Stephen Vanpelt it is 2 discs for 360 considering that it only can be dual layered which makes the 360 disc 8gb while the game itself is 17gb (dumbed down on 360 to fit 2 disc instead of having a third just for 1 gb) Nintedward-3DS-WiiU kk. I knew this game was technically impressive!!!! xdlugia Dumbed down? Nope! It’s more like the updates + the extra content for the Wii U which adds for an extra GB. The game is the same size on both PS3 and Xbox 360. Bilbo Bagens Don’t forget that the cut scenes are not compressed on the Wii U. Lynk Former 360 games, at least newer 360 games are stored on an enhanced DVD format that can store up to 10GB of data each making the 2 discs Assassin’s Creed III comes on more than enough. GameChemist Wow, Nintendoland is almost twice as big as NSMBU? Hopefully I’ll be getting the Deluxe so that it doesn’t have to be stored on the Wii U memory; definitely getting NSMBU though. Leo Wright They finally patched sonic and all stars racing! No more glitches Adrian Meredith So do these games run straight off of the external harddrive? hatsunIA NUKETOWNIA DAMN!!!!!….talking about memory space for downloadable games Master RD Glad I got a deluxe, though I doubt I’ll get Wii U games digitally unless I really want it. So I should be good. LordiMcKill I’ve always been more of a fan of disc based games compared digital downloads but the options are great none the less. Although the way things are going in terms of file sizes (Tekken Tag 2 is roughly around the same size as Assassins Creed 3 although its not mentioned oddly enough in the list), I can see Nintendo releasing larger storage models of the Wii U in the near future. Fred This article gets an incomplete. I just tried to download NBA 2k13, but it wouldn’t let me because I only had 23GB of free space on my Wii U Deluxe and 23GB wasn’t enough for NBA2k13 which the eshop told me is 24GB. I guess I’ll be buying an external hard drive tomorrow. Sylvia I expect nintendo to release it’s own external nintendo branded storage device at a competitive price. I think it’d be nice to make one that matches the Wii U console with matching led lights and preferably solid state of a decent size. I think this is nintendo’s only option to add more storage space because the onboard memory chips are quite expensive when you get up into memory chips of 32 gig each where as the deluxe wii u has 4 chips of 8 gig each.
