The good folks at Wwctech pressed CTRL+U on the game’s official website to see the code. In it, they found marketing material promising English and Japanese voice acting in the game. Here’s the bit in full:

With fully overhauled visuals, see your favorite characters come to life like never before! FINAL FANTASY VIII Remastered is an RPG, available in English and Japanese voiceover, and is also text localized into French, Italian, German and Spanish.
The original game didn’t have voice overs, so this a real bonus to help make the remastered version really stand out. We’ll have to treat this as a rumor for now until we get some more details on what will definitely be included, but the above text indicates we can expect it.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered will be out in Steam in 2019.
