Avalanche Studios' latest RPG based on the Harry Potter world is a big deal for fans of the series, offering them a chance to live out their wizarding dreams on a grand scale. With an expansive map and world to explore, the game has already garnered plenty of praise for its gameplay, visuals, and overall reimagination of the universe. But how much space does it take to run the game on the Nintendo Switch? The answer is quite a bit.

According to Twinfinite's article on the matter, the game's base file size is 7GB. However, the Day 1 patch will require an additional 8GB of space, and if players wish to install any language packs, they will take up 1.5 GB of storage as well.

The game's world is a massive one, featuring many iconic locations from the series. This includes the castle itself, as well as places like Hogsmeade and the Forbidden Forest. In addition, the game offers countless side quests and activities that will take players to different areas of the map.

For players who want to get the most out of the experience, it's recommended that they dedicate around 67 1/2 hours to achieve 100% completion. This means that they will spend about 10 days playing the game. In other words, it's not the most expansive RPG out there, but it still offers a lot of content to enjoy.
