Doom - file size revealed

Want to pick up Doom digitally on your Switch? Information on the game's file size has come out today. The initial download from the eShop will require 13.4 GB's of space. Now remember, you also need to download the multiplayer separately if you want to play that. You'll need another 9 GBs for that content.

That seems to debunk the report from earlier about the game card requiring a download for the single player, since 13 GB is smaller than the reported 23 GB.

13.4 + 9 = 22.4
Guess someone listed the complete download size as a required download, when in fact it's only the multiplayer component that need downloading on the physical version.

Thank goodness. Doom is now back on the radar. I’m excited for this one.

Yep same here ^^
That 23gig download thingy was ridiculous. I hope there won't be any bad surprise there but that bit of info pretty much confirms it was a mistake.

All that getting worked up and having heated debates for nothing. I'm happy. I'll proceed as planned on purchasing it.

Rockstar can, however, take L.A. Noire and shove it.

Well the heated debates are not for nothing. We as a nintendo fan community need to galvanize around a rejection of this practice of physical games requiring a download to be playable.

Totally agree. When I buy a game card, I expect the game to be on that card.

Ive started paying less attention to all these listing of download sizes of games on Switch, if it isn't coming from an official source. It just gets people riled up for no reason when all we have to do is just wait for the official listing to just come out.

Looks like i'll be putting the money meant for L.A. Noire towards this now that that's confirmed.
