As a reminder, the Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Day One Edition is essentially a collector’s edition version of the game for the Nintendo Switch. In addition to the base game, you get the Costume Mode, Friends Mode and Pirate Queen’s Quest add-ons, a 100-page art book and the 30-track Risky Beats soundtrack. The $19.99 digital copy sold in the eShop only includes the base game and does not offer the DLC or other extras.
