I've seen it listed at the $99.99 as a "placeholder price" somewhere, so it's probably that there's a fear the Canadian dollar will fall and prices will have to rise (even more) to make up for it. If I recall correctly, the Breath of the Wild Special Edition was also listed at a slightly higher price before release, and a couple of other games from Nintendo last year, but then decreased close to the release date.
This is starting to get a little out of hand though if prices go up to $100 per game because it's just going to make gaming completely unaffordable in Canada for most people. We've already seen a $20 jump in the prices of most new games over the past few years, and even with E3 or other discounts, they're still pretty expensive. Collector's editions are just getting nuts now too, which might be why we see some collector's editions listed as not coming with the game itself to keep the price looking more reasonable.
