Nicalis has announced a release date for Ittle Dew 2+, one of the publisher’s next games for Switch. The “puzzly adventure” is scheduled for November 14.
Here’s an overview of Ittle Dew 2+:
“Continuing the saga of sassy adventurer Ittle Dew and her deadpan sidekick (the flying fox named Tippsie), Ittle Dew 2+ is a sprawling action-adventure game that takes place entirely on a mysterious, faraway island. Left stranded on the shore after their raft breaks, Ittle and Tippsie explore the terrain in search of treasure, weapons, puzzle-solving tools and the eight scattered pieces of another raft that can allow them to escape the island.”

Tiny Barbarian DX’s file size is now known via the game’s eShop listing. If you’re going the digital route, you’ll need 159MB of free space.
