The next game in the Little Nightmares series may be on its way, following the original cult classic in 2017 and the commercial success of Little Nightmares 2.
The next game of Little nightmares saga may already be in the early stages of development. According to a job posting for Bandai Namco, there is a job posting for the puzzle platform horror game. The list indicates that Little nightmares is now a title IP address for the publisher.
Little nightmares burst onto the gaming scene in 2017 as a cult indie game. The mix of charm and horror, thanks to a unique art style and premise, has made the game a must-play for many. Fast forward to 2021 and little nightmares 2 very well reviewed as successful follow-up. The triumph of those first two games apparently made Bandai Namco like to see the series transform into a brand.
The Worldwide Brand Manager position is apparently open at the moment for Little nightmares and Bandai Namco. The mid-level position is responsible for realizing the brand identity of Little nightmares through transmedia, merchandise and games. little nightmares 2 has had extremely successful sales and, according to the job posting, the series has sold over 7 million copies to date. Maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Bandai Namco wants to pursue the franchise in a big way.
In addition to general marketing responsibilities, the Global Brand Manager should team up with the producer to help shape the game’s development, according to the list. Little nightmares and little nightmares 2 have been shipped and are therefore well beyond the developmental stage, so the fact that the job description says to assist in the development of the game would lead one to assume a possible little nightmares 3 could be on the way.
With the two main games, the mobile title Very little nightmares is also available as an adventure and puzzle game that captures the series’ spooky elements nicely in a smaller, more simplistic package. The games performed well mixing a fantasy horror title and a puzzle platformer with heart and charm, all from a non-third-person perspective, which is unique to the horror space. For fans of the series, it should be exciting to hear that there’s a good chance that developer Tarsier Studios and Bandai Namco are planning to keep the franchise going for a while. And for those who haven’t played the games yet, Bandai Namco is probably hoping that additional marketing efforts will help propel the games to even higher heights.
