Does the one without say the download size?

Edit: Hm, it doesn't.

Oh it's AUS, that's why I don't see anything. xD

20-30 minutes of HD video, the concert vid will be a sizeable chunk.

Yeah, I'd imagine that would be part of why it's that big. When you're recording something in high quality audio and video, that tends to be what happens.

I hope though, this won't be a repeat of last year when people saw the size of the original game and thought, "Oh no, the game is going to be small and short!" when it's the most expansive game to date.

The concert is 90-120 minutes isn't it? I've been trying to cast my mind back, from episode exports that I did at work were nowhere even close to 8.5 GB in size. I wouldn't be surprised if this size was for the concert itself though, in fact I'd more than likely be expecting it to be.

For only the concert DLC to have a size on the AUS and US PSN (the only ones I've checked) leads to that conclusion, especially since the regular DLC's 10.19 MB size is currently reflecting the size of the theme that comes with the pre-orders.

A finalised file size should go up very soon. The game is going up for download in exactly 4 days here in Australia (it's about to hit midnight leading into Jan 17) and it's even less time until New Zealand will be downloading the pre-load. The data needs to be uploaded to the PSN very soon.

I can't imagine them dedicating more than 2 GB to a concert video but who the hell knows. Being that the original game was 38.5GB with 9 worlds I guess we could expect at least 1 full sized new world if it turns out the game is roughly 6GB, which would be scala ad caelum

Is the concert 4K? The file size really starts to add up at higher res.

For reference; Fallout 4's two big DLC, Far Harbor and Nuka World, were 3.32 and 4.12 GB respectively.

Those were HUGE DLC by the way.

And for a closer reference, the FF15 DLC sizes:

Episode Gladiolus: 2.8 GB

Episode Prompto: 3.1 GB

Episode Ignis: 4.62 GB

Episode Ardyn: 6.21 GB

Communism Comrades: 7.53 GB

What I'm getting from this is that Square don't know how to compress files

8 Gigs may sound like a lot, but maybe we're getting more than we think.

13 Expanded/new Bosses alone is sure to be at least a gig or 2, and then all these new cutscenes, several new "scenarios", custom menu options, etc. For me, the bigger the file size, potentially the most promising... that's the positive outlook I'm sticking with, anyway.

8.36 GB could be a conflated file size as it could be including the Orchestra video in with the actual DLC file size. It's still large though, but remember that file size =/= content length or scale.

Eh, I don't think the FFXV DLCs are a fair comparison since it is a completely engine. KH3 has some amazing compression. Truly, sorcerers the lot of Osaka are.

14.2 GB in Japan. They have to download English Voice Overs though, that’s why the size is bigger.

There is no way that English voice overs alone constitute up to 6GB unless they are patching the whole game? It could be that the 8.4GB you noted in the OP is actually only the size of the orchestra video only and that 14.2GB is the size of the DLC. There is no orchestra option on the japanese DLC page either.

It can since there are multiple CG videos that need to be downloaded for the English version.

I don’t quite understand what you mean about no orchestra option? Fans in Japan can preorder the regular edition and the orchestra edition.

I mean the 8.4 GB you quoted in the OP was presumably a combination of the DLC and the orchestra.

The Japanese Remind DLC page linked here looks like its just the DLC alone and adds up to 14.2GB? Unless I'm missing something

So either the CG video and voice over file size for the english patch is absolutely massive for the Japanese DLC or the 8.4 GB in the OP was the size of the orchestra alone. The difference in file size between the US and Japanese full KH3 game was only a couple GB so I don't see how the Japanese Remind DLC would be so much bigger for Cutscenes and voiceovers.

You seem to be reaching this conclusion by thinking that the Orchestra edition file size is for the orchestra itself when we don’t know that for certain yet. The file size in the OP could well and truly be for the DLC itself.

Hundreds of lines of dialogue can really increase a file size. And with that comes extra code to have the lip flaps match the English dialogue and CG cutscenes.

edit: there we go, 22.6 GB for orchestra. 8.4 GB more than the regular edition so 😂😂

It's kinda odd that the International version with the concert is 8.4 GB and that also seems to be the size difference between the two Japanese versions.
