Sonic Origins file size on Switch is considerably bigger than Sonic Mania

Sonic Origins file size

Still due on June 23, 2022

The Sonic Origins file size has been revealed, at least on Switch, and the base edition clocks in at 3.6GB, quite a bit larger than Sonic Mania.

For reference, Sonic Mania sits comfortably at 390MB, which is great news for folks who don’t have a ton of space on their Switch. Sonic Origins, again, is nearly 10 times that amount, and the Digital Deluxe Edition adds a little heft, coming in at 3.8GB (the Nintendo store size is erroneous, and the actual eShop listing shows the correct size).

As a reminder, that Sonic Origins file size includes the following games (plus extras):

  • Sonic 1
  • Sonic 2
  • Sonic 3 & Knuckles
  • Sonic CD

The Digital Deluxe Edition includes “bonus hard missions, additional music tracks, backgrounds, character animations, and an island camera,” which accounts for that extra space.

I hope after all this, and all of the confusing pre-order layers, that this ends up paying off. Sonic could always use a win, and coming off of the successful film would be great timing. Plus, with a quality product, the company can set up Sonic Frontiers for success if it continues to ride that wave. As usual though it is Sonic: so anything is possible.
