After being leaked and eventually announced at E3 2019, it appears that Final Fantasy VIII Remastered will get a physical release in certain territories like the UK. The remaster of the popular PS1 and PC JRPG was assumed to be a digital-only release much like Final Fantasy VII and IX. However this does not seem to be the case. Listings for Final Fantasy VIII Remastered on PS4 and Nintendo Switch on sites like Game UK and The Final Fantasy VIII Remastered price is GBP 50 (MSRP, Rs. 4400) with some listings discounting it by GBP 5.

At the moment there’s no confirmation if this will be available in all regions. Though safe to say, if the UK is getting it, so would Europe and hopefully, India too as the country gets European stock of Square Enix games.

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered was announced at Square Enix’s E3 2019 conference for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Previously, its existence was leaked. Outside of a PC re-release a few years ago, Final Fantasy VIII hasn’t seen the same attention Square Enix has paid to other Final Fantasy games of the same era such as Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy IX, both of which have seen re-releases on the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in addition to iOS and Android variants.
