Watch Dogs first Wii U game to require mandatory install

Here’s a first for Wii U. It appears Watch Dogs is the first and only (to my knowledge) Wii U title that requires a mandatory install. Don’t worry 8GB Basic Unit owners, the game only asks for 128MB of memory.

Reportedly it only takes one minute to install. That’s good enough I imagine and not a long wait. Still, you have to wonder why more Wii U games don’t do this though I imagine the console’s limited storage space is a big factor into that.

What could be so important to Watch Dogs that it needs 128MB to run on the system?
