It Takes Two was rumored for a Switch release a few weeks back, and this week’s Nintendo Direct confirmed it by revealing the game early in the presentation. Even better, we learned shortly after that a retail release was coming our way. Unfortunately, there’s now a bit of bad news to go along with that.
According to the cover art for It Takes Two, those who pick up a physical copy will still have to download some content in order to play. More specific details are shared via Nintendo’s website, which we’ve included below verbatim.
It’s certainly understandable that the Friend’s Pass requires a download for the player on the other end, but seeing the owner of the physical release still has to download 3.5 GB’s worth of data is a bit disappointing.
For those wondering, It Takes Two requires 9.5 GB of space if you’re going the digital route.
