Eh, I don't think MS shelled out for this otherwise it would be a physical version as well. A lot of these Japanese games are just Gamepass only. They don't have the confidence to fully commit. Like some Digital/cloud-only versions of some games on Switch. Look at Yakuza. The only one to get a physical edition is the one MS paid for some exclusivity. The rest are Gamepass only. PS4 remains the only place where all those games are physical.

Yakuza Like-a-Dragon was a pretty recent release they heavily advertised when the Series X was about to be released while Octopath Traveler is a 3 year-old game that already saw it's prime on Switch and PC a bit later. Why would they bother to make a physical version of the game knowing it's sales potential would be excruatingly low against a Gamepass release.
