Some games are big, some games are small. That's really all there is to it, the DS (and really almost any console) was like that too.

The average 3ds rom is about 512MB-1GB and ranges from 128MB to 4GB.

They're still a lot larger that DS games which average 64MB (range 8MB-512MB).
(dsiware games are limited to 16MB as well)

It's probably a corrupted download, smash4 is 2gb so it should never be under 1.1gb, though I don't know what the actual trimmed size is 3ds.essh.co might

Possibly a rebuilt copy with stuff stripped out of it/down sampled?! This would be the first I've heard of this, but we certainly have the programs to do so...at least with some file formats..

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I want the dog also
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Deals off then, dog stays with me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I didn't say which one
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download
