If you’re in Europe, you were already able to do this weeks ago. But if you live in North America and plan to get Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, there is some good news to share with you. The digital version of Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is now available to pre-load on the Nintendo Switch. Pre-loading means you can purchase a game early, and you can download any data that is necessary. Because of this, you will be able to pick up and play as soon as the game launches, provided you have an internet connection. However, make sure you have plenty of space. The download size is 12.9 GB, and the game releases on May 18th.
