Originally, our press release said that "platforms and release date are yet to be announced". However, a few moments later, D-Pad Studio released a video with the release date and platforms. Owlboy is coming to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on February 13, 2018. A physical edition is also in the works but the studio or publisher didn't provide any additional details.
Owlboy is notable for its long development cycle, which began in 2007 and ended in 2016 when it launched on Windows PC. It took the studio years to perfect the mechanics and visuals because of the small team size. Speaking about their collaboration with D-Pad Studio, Bas de Jonge, Marketing Manager at SOEDESCO, said the following.
I'm very excited to finally announce our collaboration, it's something we've had in the works for a while now. Today, a year after Owlboy's release on Steam, we're happy to finally share this news with the community, and we're hoping everyone is just as excited as we are to bring this fantastic game to retail.
Owlboy is an adventure game where players can fly and explore a new world in the clouds. Players need to overcome obstacles and enemies in detailed environments filled with secrets. The main character Otus can't speak, so he struggles living up to the expectations of owl-hood. Events spiral out of control with the sudden appearance of sky pirates. Otus then embarks on a journey through monster-infested ruins and treacherous forests to prove himself.
