The game will be available in English, Japanese, Chinese (traditional and simplified), Korean, and French at launch. It will include 15 popular songs performed by Kizuna AI herself, including the popular "Hello, Morning" which counts over 3 million views on YouTube. Additional songs, costumes, and other downloadable content will be released after the official launch of the main title.
