Years later, Collectors Edition became a thing. A more expensive version of the same game that came with added stuff. Some had maps, a steel case, a statue, maybe even an art book.

While Nintendo has been dabbling with online services since the Super NES. In this new modern area, we kind of expect our online services to work. Switch online is just terrible, especially for a paid service. While it is cheap, at only $20, that doesn't excuse it for…
