In his answer Tabita said that the game’s story mode will be around 40-50 hours. This has been confirmed three months earlier by Tabita at another forum. Game Rant reported last March that at NicoNico livestream that was hosted by Famitsu, he had affirmed that gameplay would be around 50 hours. At E3 2016 he has said that the gameplay will be that long.

In detail Tabita said that there would be around 40 hours of story that players could go through. However there would also be a number of side quests and others that could be of interest to the player. If time for the side quests are factored in, players then could expect around 100 hours of gameplay and might even reach for as long as 200 hours.
