Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze’s File Size Revealed…
And guess what? It takes up 11GB of space if downloaded digitally from the eShop. Which means that anyone stupid/unlucky enough to got a basic set will need to get a whole hard drive just to fit the game on (while everyone else will likely lose about half their storage space anyway).
Donkey Kong Country Freeze is over 11GB. Biggest Nintendo game ever? It takes up half my Wii U!

So yes, looks like Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is quite the large game, and certainly one you might need to consider buying extra HD space for.
