According to the store page, the game is 13.7 GB large and will support many languages, including Japanese, French, German, Chinese, English, Spanish, Italian, and Korean.

Meanwhile, the Japanese site goes into a bit more detail on the game, detailing the backstory and early game events that lead to Shulk beginning his journey all across Bionis and Mechonis. We saw a bit of it during the Nintendo Direct Mini, but these versions aren’t blocked out by the voice of the narrator.
