We'll also be receiving a special edition of the game, complete with a pop-up book, map and coin coming day and date with the release of the game.

Before all that, you can still pick up the extremely generous demo on the eShop. Seriously, do it now if you haven't already - there's at least five hours of action to enjoy which will likely stoke your appetite for more.
