Little Devil Inside devs explain PS5 exclusivity as 'timed,' say other console versions coming later

It could still happen...but not anytime soon

Longtime readers of GoNintendo might recognize Little Devil Inside. The game, which was just announced as PS5 exclusive, is actually a Kickstarter-backed project from years ago. Believe it or not, the developer's original intention was to bring the game to Wii U. After that, the devs showed interest in bringing the game to Switch.

So what on earth happened in the last few months? Somehow Sony nailed down console exclusivity for the PS5, meaning no other versions are coming anytime soon. We know the Wii U wasn't going to happen anyway, but what about a Switch version? The developers took to their Kickstarter to explain the situation, and long story short, the PS5 version is a time-exclusive. The game can eventually hit other platforms, and those will be discussed at a later date.

If you want to wade into the full details of the messy situation, you can read the full message from the dev team below.

With the partnership in place with PlayStation, Little Devil Inside will be coming to the PlayStation 5 Systems (PS5) as a PlayStation "Timed" Exclusive title which means that the game will be available only on PS5 and no other consoles for a limited time, after which, it will be available on other consoles. Unfortunately, we are not able to disclose the actual term of the exclusivity yet.

As many of you know, we originally hoped for an all platform, concurrent release but for many reasons which we learned the hard way, this just was not possible.

We have also received direct inquiries where many of you are confused about how this affects the release for PC. This move DOES NOT affect our plans to release for PC and we will do our very best to release for PC at the same time as PS5.

So to clarify, a release for PS5/PS4 and PC is our top priority with other console platforms to follow after the exclusivity period expires.

We will be announcing further plans and details as they become unlocked.

For a system that didn't have many games there was a lot of games that were being made for the Wii U that didn't make it to the Wii U.

Nintendo was very open about allowing indies to develop for the console, so it was planned by a lot of companies.
