Spyro Reignited Switch Version Comes With Huge Download

The physical edition of Spyro Reignited Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch requires you to download 8.7 GB of data. You have to download all this, because that bundle is basically the majority of Spyro 2 and Spyro 3. The PS4 and Xbox One versions do the same thing, but those platforms have way more storage space than the Switch. So, this could end up being a bit of an issue.

Spyro Reignited Switch Version Comes With Huge Download

According to Reddit user Aufinator, and confirmed by others, the physical version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Nintendo Switch comes with a huge download. Specifically, you’ll have to save 8.7 GB of space in order to have access to all three games. Now, to be fair, the physical versions of Spyro Reignited on the PS4 and Xbox One do the same thing. The disk comes only with Spyro 1 in full, and some elements of 2 and 3. Then, you download a large update, and then you can play all three games.

However, the Switch has a big problem here, compared to the other consoles, and you might be guessing what it is: the memory. The Switch has a paltry 32 GB of storage space, while the others go up to 1 TB. So, it’s much more difficult to keep full games downloaded on the Switch, unless you have a huge SD card. And, keep in mind, some day, Nintendo is going to stop supporting Switch’s online services. When they do, unless you have everything downloaded, you’ll be left with a cartridge that has only one game on it. Keep that in mind, and plan accordingly.

Spyro: Reignited Trilogy originally launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One a year ago; on November 13th, 2018 to be exact. Now, on September 3rd, it’s also available on PC and Nintendo Switch. It’s well worth your money, especially if you haven’t played them back in the day. Just, you know… if you’re playing on the Switch, have an SD card or something handy.
