As we noted last week, Ittle Dew 2 disappeared from the Switch eShop. The developer of Ittle Dew 2 took to Twitter to comment on the matter, saying that they were in discussions to transfer Ittle Dew 2 publishing rights back to them. This was followed by radio silence, and then the game simply disappeared from multiple storefronts. The developer has removed their original tweets on the matter, and Nicalis has now provided USGamer with a statement on the matter.
Our Ittle Dew 2 publishing agreement with Ludosity has ended. We've been in communication with the Ludosity team and the first-party platforms during the transition and attempted to transfer the publishing from Nicalis to Ludosity. The game was successfully transferred to Ludosity on Steam. Unfortunately, not all storefronts have a backend system in place to transfer or "re-home" a game to a different publisher. To abide by the terms of the original contract and Ludosity's request to assume control of publishing Ittle Dew 2, it was necessary to delist the game on these platforms. We remain fans of Ittle Dew 2 and we wish the Ludosity team all the best in the future.
