The Nintendo Switch exclusive “Ultimate Day One Edition” physical release includes the game’s groovy 30-song ‘Risky Beats’ soundtrack on CD, a gorgeous new 100-page art book (96 interior pages + 4 page cover), and plenty of company for Shantae with the ‘Pirate Queen’s Quest’, ‘Costume Pack’, and ‘Friends to the End’ DLC all included in the Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition game card packed in the box.
