As XSEED and/or Wyrdwad stated here in ALoY, for big name games like "Ys: Celceta, The Sea of Trees" it's very much certain they will release it "physically" (as well as "digitally"). Especially since no matter what, "physical" games STILL sell more in terms of number, which pays off all the investments of going "physical" and beyond, thus making it more needed than a "digital" release.
Something to remember about some of their recent offerings is that physical releases simply weren't practical. Corpse Party was an extremely niche game so they couldn't afford a physical release and expect to make any money even if they could get a retailer to stock it in the first place. The Steam releases of Oath and Origin are similar; niche titles in a market that's mostly dead. This game isn't going to have any of those specific issues.
Man, thank goodness through all this that XSEED isn't demotivated to keep on releasing more niche games. ... Man, I hope XSEED earns much more recognition from gamers as time passes. Cause we need way more killer niche games in this market flooded with too many crappy mainstream games. ... like sigh, when is Falcom gonna finally get the recognition from Western gamers that it deserves? There are so many great games by them and I can barely find any info, game reviews, etc, on them off the net. So sad.

I get what your saying but They didn't get the recognition because they didn't care about the western markets. It's only through XSEED that things are turning around. So It's hard to say they deserve recognition from western gamers when there has been nothing after 1991, until recently, for western gamers to recognize.
Oh and I'm speaking of mainstream gamers so no fan translations don't count.
Edit: after reading my post it seems like I'm hating on falcom a little. That was not my intent. I love Falcom; just playing a little bit of devils advocate.

Well, there was Ys VI on the PS2 in 2005 or so by Konami.
Anyway, in terms of game quality, they "deserve" to get recognition everywhere in the world. In terms of effort in getting recgonition outside their country, then I think almost no foreign developer does anything about it. With just some exceptions.
