The Little Nightmares Game Be In The Early Stages Of Development

Published

on

The next game in the Little Nightmares series may be on the way, after the first cult masterpiece in 2017 and the sales success of Little Nightmares 2.

The next game in the Little Nightmares saga may already be in the early stages of development. According to a job posting for Bandai Namco, there is a job opening for the puzzle-platforming horror game. Little Nightmares is now a flagship IP for the publisher, according to the listing.

Little Nightmares exploded onto the gaming industry in 2017 as a cult-classic indie game.

The mix of charm and horror, thanks to a unique art style and premise, made the game a must-play for many.

Fast forward to 2021 and Little Nightmares 2 reviewed very well as the successful follow-up. The triumph of those first two games has apparently made it so that Bandai Namco would like to see the series turned into a brand.

Little Nightmares and Bandai Namco are reportedly hiring a Worldwide Brand Manager right now. The mid-senior level position has the responsibility of carrying out the brand identity of Little Nightmares across transmedia, merchandising, and games.

Little Nightmares 2 was a huge hit, with the series selling over 7 million copies to date, according to the job posting. It’s perhaps not surprising that Bandai Namco wants to continue the brand in a significant way.

According to the job description, in addition to general marketing responsibilities, the Worldwide Brand Manager will collaborate with the producer to help shape the game’s development.

Little Nightmares and Little Nightmares 2 have shipped and are therefore well beyond the development stage, so the fact that the job description points to helping with the game’s development would lead one to assume a possible Little Nightmares 3 could be on the way.

In addition to the two mainline games, Very Little Nightmares is a puzzle adventure game that does a good job of capturing the creepy elements of the series in a smaller and more simplistic package. The games have done well as a blend of a fantastic horror title and a puzzle platformer with heart and charm—all in a non-third-person perspective, which is unique to the horror space.

Fans of the series should be pleased to learn that developer Tarsier Studios and publisher Bandai Namco have plans to keep the franchise alive for a long time. Bandai Namco is likely hoping that additional marketing pushes will help propel the games to even greater heights for those who have not yet played them.
