Rumor: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to Feature Dual Audio Voice Tracks
An unconfirmed statement claims Breath of the Wild will have both Engilsh and Japanese voice acting.
A recent rumor suggests The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will have dual audio tracks for voice acting in both Japanese and English upon release.
A post on NeoGAF points to this tweet from someone in France who allegedly asked a Nintendo representative during a Paris game event if the game would have multiple language tracks. According to them, the representative confirmed both Japanese and English would be available, depending on what version of the game was purchased.

The only thing supporting this is that Nintendo announced they will no longer do any region locking for their games.
The easiest way to do this is to make their games have a single version with language options.
It could be that they just have both versions on their store for download based on your store locale. The store locale would just be to filter for your language preference. This is a more likely approach since it is more what they mean by "no region lock" where you can buy the game in any language regardless of your region, but there will be no different versions of the Switch.
