Everyone can expect the total file size to be about 10 GB on both iOS and Android devices. Sadly, PlayStation 4 and 5 don't have a new Gacha title under their name.

Mobile devices such as Android and iOS should be able to download the files once they are available on the Play Store and App Store, respectively.
