Earlier this week, Ittle Dew 2+ returned to the Nintendo eShop as a self-published title by Ludosity – several months after publisher Nicalis de-listed the game without warning. We originally assumed that this re-release would be identical to the original one from 2017, but now it looks like it might be superior altogether!
Earlier last week, we reported on the unfortunate delisting of Ittle Dew 2+ from the Switch eShop – which occurred in light of accusations against publisher Nicalis for its shady business practices. With fans now enraged at Nicalis’ actions, the publisher finally decided to defend itself with a new statement.
Last week, the video game community were enraged by Kotaku’s story on the shady dealings and ghosting of indie publisher Nicalis.
Nicalis’ Ittle Dew 2+, a follow up to 2013’s Ittle Dew, is an open world adventure with tons to see. Ittle and her pal Tippsie crash on a little island and must explore to repair their raft. This game is directly inspired from the earlier 2D, top down style Legend of Zelda games. The game was originally released in late 2016 on other platforms. The game is dripping with charm and adventure. Developers Ludosity Interactive have done a great job creating a smooth and compete package. I had never played the first game, so I was excited to download the title and begin playing!
Nicalis, the publisher of Ittle Dew 2+, has confirmed the game’s launch date on Nintendo Switch.
The upcoming physical release of Ittle Dew 2+ for Nintendo Switch will come with extra goodies.
It didn’t take long, but a physical copy of Ittle Dew 2 has finally been confirmed by Nicalis on Twitter today.
