If you are planning on completing the sidequests and other additional content, it will take a bit longer than the main story's gameplay length.

Sidequests and minigames are unlocked as you progress through the main story. While most may take a few minutes to complete, these will further increase the estimated time.

It should take you approximately 48 gameplay hours to finish the game with additional content.
