This bullsh*t right here is getting out of hand in the Nintendo eShop. I can understand the existence of things like an “ultimate” edition if an older game got lots of extra content later and the devs decided to sell the base game and DLC as a bundle. Or a “complete” edition if multiple games of the same franchise are sold as a bundle.
But FFS if your singleplayer offline game isn’t even released yet, there is absolutely no need to deliberately rip content from the base game just to sell it as a “bonus” or split the content across different editions so people would have to pay extra for stuff that’s not in the “base game” - that’s just corporate greed, nothing else.
Oh and the “ultimate edition” costs 109,99 by the way, with ca 70,00 worth of cosmetical extras. Not more content, more quests or more story; just swim suits and sunglasses for the characters. WTH.
If it was just this one game, I would laugh at their idiocy and just move on, but those “editions” seem to slowly turn into the standard sales model in the eshop, especially with newly released games or ones that are “coming soon” like in the example above.
