We heard last week how Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition on the Nintendo Switch was a rather meaty size – coming in at around 25.4GB according to a listing on the North American eShop page.
While it’s not exactly big when compared to downloads on other platforms, if you’re a physical Nintendo collector, it’s not the best news. A look at the game’s official box art has now surfaced online and attached to the front of it is the dreaded label “download required”.
This information comes via Direct-Feed Games (via Twitter):
“US retailers are now being provided assets and GTA – The Trilogy for Switch has a “Download Required” banner.”
This isn’t all that surprising given Rockstar’s history on the Switch, with L.A. Noire requiring a hefty download for the physical version – 14GB to be precise.
The physical version of GTA: The Trilogy will arrive on 7th December, and the digital version launches a month earlier on 11th November. Will you be picking up a hard copy of this game? Leave a comment down below.
