The release of L.A. Noire creeps closer and closer and, boy, are we getting excited about this Switch debut. However, earlier this week Rockstar released the file sizes for both versions of the game and it may require some re-jigging if you're thinking about getting an e-copy.

L.A. Noire is a cracking detective game set in 1940s Los Angeles. You'll follow the story of the beat cop-turned-rookie detective, Cole Phelps, as he and his partners try to decipher clues and hunt down a variety of murderers.

While the cartridge size will require a 'lighter' 14 GB, the eShop download will set you back an unsurprising 29 GB. This means that potential players that haven't yet invested in a microSD card will have to bite the bullet and splash out for that extra memory.

The system itself may have a base 32 GB, but a good few of those GB are used up on system software. You'll also have to make sure your microSD has a read speed of at least 60 MB/second.
