Final Fantasy VIII Remastered will be a digital release only, VIII surpasses 9.6 million sold

There were some reports or rumours that Final Fantasy VIII Remastered would see a physical release of some kind but Square Enix Japan has confirmed that all versions will only be sold digitally.

This is zero surprise since Final Fantasy IX's remaster was only released digitally as well and games are rarely released physically for under $40 USD.

In addition, Square Enix also announced that Final Fantasy VIII has now surpassed over 9.6 million copies sold worldwide. This places it as the third best selling game in the series behind Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy X which Square Enix has refused to update sales figures for following the release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster in 2013.
