Why is it getting a physical release years later? I can imagine most people already own it digitally. Also the size of the game only being 255.67 MB meaning it doesn't make sense to release a physical copy.

Great game by the way! Just strange decision...

There are a lot of indie games getting limited physical releases. There's a massive 'underground community' of gamers who are in the market for buying/collecting these titles on disc. I have had this preordered since listing on Amazon went live myself.

Not at all. I'll rarely buy digital version of games, as a collector I like to preserve the classics (as do many others). I also resell games I don't like / connect with. Not gonna pay £15 for a game with no demo that I might only play for 15 minutes.

I knew it would appeal to a collector. I did think of you mixmixi but I can't imagine a physical copy would sell very well with the average gamer. It has been in many digital sales over the last couple of years so surely most people own it!

You are right about that. It won't sell well, but it won't be mass produced too for the same reason. This particular title and such as which are being released through generic retailers will stand somewhere in between AAA releases and indies with limited releases. They do not stand a good chance in the market since they are readily available and also are not very popular, unfortunately. But I support indies.
I would have thought the 'Multiverse' edition would be more appealing for collectors - only an extra tenner....

amazon.co.uk/Axi…rge
really wanted to get this on the switch but not paying £10 switch tax, especially considering the small size of the game so wont need a bigger more expensive card

I guess if it won't be mass produced and only a limited amount made then it could very well sell out with it being a collector's item. It does make you wonder though the cost of manufacturing limited amounts and if they recoup the costs made on the physical copies.

As far as my understanding goes the cost of manufacturing for physical discs are very low on Sony's end. Too low that some games are being released on very limited number and have a low RRP too.

Also helps that Sony helps subsidise developer/publishers with low printing prices. Unlike a certain other company that price gouges EVERYTHING...
