No, you have seen this movie before.

Ittle Dew 2+ is currently delisted from the eShop because of the actions of its original publisher.

Originally released in 2017 for Switch, Ittle Dew 2+ was developed by Ludosity and originally published on Switch and other platforms by Nicalis. According to Ludosity CEO Joel Nystrom in a Twitter post this morning, Ludosity cancelled the publishing contract for the game with the aim of self-publishing it several months ago, and Nicalis originally planned to transfer the publishing rights for the game. Following several months of Nicalis silence, Ittle Dew 2+ was delisted from the Switch eShop and all other console stores late yesterday.

Nicalis has been under a storm of controversy in recent months, including an "April Fool's" joke that included an update for a game Kickstarted in 2014 and a recent Kotaku expose that includes multiple racist statements, forced alcohol consumption, and abusive acts from Nicalis founder Tyrone Rodriguez.

Ittle Dew 2 was on the Wii U as well I believe.

As much as Nicalis is just a shitty company it's also equally shitty to delist games from digital storefronts without any kind of warning. It's not clear from the tweet, was it Nicalis who delisted the game or was it Ludosity?

That's what happens when I read stuff and I'm half asleep so words start disappearing.
