Ittle Dew 2+ was relisted on Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe on March 19th, 2020. Although the game is once again available, it is allegedly a new listing meaning those who own the version published by Nicalis will not be able to transition or upgrade to the 2020 release. In another Twitter reply, Ludosity developer @ReallyJoel confirmed that a new Xbox One release is in the works as well. The original delisting details follow.
Ittle Dew 2 (aka Ittle Dew 2+) was delisted from the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 19th, 2019. It remained available briefly in European territories but was soon delisted globally where published by Nicalis. Ludosity CEO Joel Nyström took to Twitter on September 20th to explain the studio’s frustrations with the publisher:
Can definitely confirm that Nicalis is a piece of shit publisher – after being surprised to find out (by looking in their email inbox) that we cancelled their license to publish 6 months ago, they first agreed to transfer the games over to us.
Well after the usual ghosting for a few weeks I today wake up to find that they just couldn’t be bothered, and just delisted Ittle Dew 2 from all console store fronts. Another promise to us they just straight up broke – and a shitty move for the customers. Now I’m gonna see if I can get them de-delisted or if I have to re-publish.
The game is expected to return when Ludosity is able to take over as the publisher or a new publishing partner is found. In the meantime, Ittle Dew 2+ remains available to download solely on Steam where Ludosity is also the publisher.
About the Game
“Ittle and Tippsie crash onto yet another island filled with loot, puzzles and mysterious inhabitants! With the help of a magical map, they set out to steal eight pieces of a raft from increasingly improbable locations including beaches, prairies, an art exhibit and some dude’s basement.
Ittle Dew 2 is a charming and humorous 3D Action Adventure game with a focus on exploration and combat. Tackle the game’s dungeons in any order and discover the many secrets of its expansive overworld. With only four main weapons, combat and puzzling is streamlined, yet upgradeable inventory items add RPG-like character progression!“
