3DS eShop Receives First Wave Of Full Retail Downloads
By Kevin on Oct 18 2012 08:11 PM
Flying by Arwing, stomping from Goomba to Goomba, galloping by way of Epona and drifting by Kart come four new and exciting North American 3DS eShop titles. Star Fox 64 3D, Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Mario Kart 7, are the four new 3DS eShop titles. In fact, today marks the first time in the history of the North American 3DS eShop that full retail titles are available for purchase and download. We urge you to be excited, but we want to make you aware of some important information about these awesome digitally distributed titles. Let's take a closer look at the block size (file size) requirements and pricing details.
Many of us have already had the privilege of playing through titles like Star Fox 64 3D, Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Mario Kart 7. For those who have purchased these retail versions in the store or online, chances are you won't purchase the equivalent eShop variant. For those who are planning on downloading any one of these, we have the block size requirements handy for you. The block size requirement is, quite simply, the amount of space that is needed on your SD (Secure Digital) card in order to download the product.
I have personally taken the liberty of adding enough funds to my 3DS eShop account to verify the below listed block sizes, as shown in the following images. I was very careful not to click on the "Purchase" button during this process, however.
- Star Fox 64 3D - 4,619 blocks
- Mario Kart 7 - 5,083 blocks
- Super Mario 3D Land - 2,321 blocks
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D - 3,646 blocks
* block sizes may vary from region to region
* 1GB is approximately 8,192 blocks
