To fully enjoy the physical (disc-based) version of the game, players can download four free and optional High Speed Data Packs in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U to help with the game’s performance. The Basic Data Pack is the most effective of the four and speeds up load times for elements of the massive open game world. The Enemy Data Pack loads enemy data even faster, the Player Data Pack accelerates armor load times when changing equipment in shops and the Skell Data Pack loads Skells faster when players are out in the field. The physical game is available now for Wii U in stores at a suggested retail price of $59.99. To learn more about storage options, visit here. The digital version of the game in the Nintendo eShop and the version purchased on the website comes with the Data Packs built in.
