Bandai Namco’s “Little Nightmares” Has You Confronting Childhood Fears


Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc has announced its newest project, Little Nightmares, today.  This new adventure title has players seeing through the eyes of a child, a little girl named Six.

Dressed in a yellow raincoat, she must brave the world outside to escape from “The Maw”, a large, looming vessel teeming with corrupted souls hunting for their next meal.

The game was developed by Tarsier Studios, Little Nightmares is slated for a digital release in the Americas in Spring 2017, on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

The world of Little Nightmares is both grim and unforgiving, the player learns as they travel along the narrative’s engaging storyline, complete with impressive sound design and a unique-art style that is eerie and atmospheric.

Little Nightmares “blurs the line between dreams a nightmares” as the Maw is explored in order to escape its confines. Macabre enemies and environments intertwine to form a frightfully wonderful atmosphere on this strange vessel.

It’s taken us about 10 years to come to this moment, to reveal the most exciting game in our company history, a dark, thrilling tale of grotesque misfits!” said Andreas Johnsson – Business Developer & Deputy CEO at Tarsier Studios “Since publishing the teaser last year we’ve worked day and night to bring the game to life, and now, we are beyond excited to show our first original game at Gamescom, Little Nightmares.

Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc continues,“With LITTLE NIGHTMARES the team at Tarsier Studios is creating a game experience that tackles a subject everyone can identify with, childhood fears and nightmares.We’re looking forward to Little Nightmares giving players a heart-pounding adventure, some chills, and maybe a few screams along the way.”
