Square-Enix did a lot of work to squeeze Dragon Quest XI S onto the Switch. They managed to take 30 GB PS4 file size and work that down to 13.5 GB on Switch. How in the world did Square-Enix pull that off?
They did good work. It's a excellent port
They didn't just squeeze down 30GB but they also added a shit ton more content and story. It's truly a remarkable version of a remarkable game.
This I'll be under my tree on Christmas!
Get this now. And let Pokemon Shield/Sword be under your Xmas tree instead.

I was hoping it would explain how they did it, or into more details.
"The cartridges come in a variety of capacities: 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8GB, 16 GB and 32 GB. 64 GB cartridges were planned to be introduced in the second half of 2018, but due to unspecified circumstances, Nintendo delayed the launch of this variant to 2019." I have the game but they could have used a 32GB cart. We are at the end of 2019 and no games use a 64GB cart yet.
