Nothing Says ‘Celebrate’ Like Creepy Children Humming in the Dark
Little Nightmares II is doing pretty well for itself–one month after launch, it’s already sold 1 million units, received a ton of critical acclaim from various news outlets (including us), and generally been adored by players. To celebrate, Tarsier Studios and Bandai Namco Entertainment have created a new video dedicated to two things: showing off all the nice things people have been saying about the game and giving watchers a sample of some of the incredibly creepy imagery this title has to offer. It succeeds at both goals with flying colors. Witness.
This game may be a stealth prequel to the original one, but tonally, it picks up right where the first Little Nightmares left off. You play as Mono, a spooky little boy with a paper bag over his head, a strange connection to televisions, and the complete and total willingness to destroy any monster his own size. Unfortunately, most monsters of the game’s enemies are way too big for him to handle. Be prepared to face down towering foes, confusing puzzles, and incredibly tense stealth sections in your quest to survive a world that wasn’t made for you. At least you aren’t facing the nightmare alone… though all things considered, Mono might be better off if he’d left the girl with the yellow raincoat where she was. She may have been the protagonist of the first game, but Six is nobody’s symbol of good fortune.
Herve Hoerdt, Senior Vice President Marketing, Content and Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe, had this to say about the series’ continuous growth in both games and comics: “These are two important milestones for a franchise that we have nurtured and grown within BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and would not be possible without the amazing support from the Little Nightmares community. We can’t wait to share with you what’s next in the Little Nightmares universe.”
That works out because we can’t wait to see what Little Nightmares comes up with next.
Little Nightmares II is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and PC.
