Coming in 2020
Little Nightmares dropped back in 2017 and made a rather large splash: as far as atmospheric adventure games go that aren’t from Playdead studios. Tarsier Studios is even returning for the sequel, Little Nightmares II, which was revealed today at Gamescom with a new trailer.
Although we don’t have a lot of info to go off of (by design) in the cryptic trailer, the developers do confirm that “much of it will take place outside,” with shifts things around a bit and gives the follow-up a different feel. As a reminder, Little Nightmares wasn’t just a one-off thing, as Bandai Namco also supplemented it with a trio of DLC stories that were told from a different perspective, but informed the overall story.
This seems like an IP that’s here to stay, and although I had issues with the original, I hope Tarsier builds on that foundation.
