"Tomodachi Life" is Only 424 MB in Size

If you are thinking about downloading "Tomodachi Life" for the 3DS, you wont have to come up with a bunch of extra space. According to Nintendo Life, "Tomodachi Life" only takes up 3,400 blocks. This is the same as around 424 MB.

Let's compare that to other 3DS games. "Animal Crossing: New Leaf" required nearly 6,000 blocks in order to download it digitally. You could even compared it to "Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D" which took up a massive 17,000 blocks. Overall, it looks like "Tomodachi Life" is a small game that packs a big punch.

Trailer For "NES Remix 2"

Check out this trailer for the upcoming game "NES Remix 2." Once this game releases, and if you already own "NES Remix," than you gain access to a special mode called Championship Mode, which has its own online leader board.

I love these Remix games. I hope Nintendo keeps going with this idea and soon we see a SNES Remix!
