There are many ways to terrorize players. You can look for the sensationalism, the scarcity of resources or the confusion before what is being seen… or, on the contrary, bet on the artistic direction and the terrifying beauty of its settings. This is the case of Little Nightmares.
In 2017, the small Swedish studio Tarsier Studios surprised us with a remarkable horror-adventure game on PC and consoles. Little Nightmares He became one of the covers of that year.
But the thing would not stay in a single game. Two years later, Bandai Namco would bet on Alike Studio to develop a game for mobile devices, Very Little Nightmareswhile Tarsier was working on the sequel for PC and consoles.

Thus, in 2021, Little Nightmares II would arrive, a sequel that surpassed the original game in everything. Even It came to have a next-gen version on PS5 and Xbox Series which took advantage of the hardware of both systems.
What is the future of Little Nightmares? Will we have a third part one day? It’s possible, but for now it’s time celebrate the sixth anniversary of the franchise.
The Little Nightmares franchise just turned 6 years old. After three games on PC, consoles and mobile, fans are wondering what will become of the IP in the future.
And it is that Tarsier Studios, creators of Little Nightmares and its sequel, now belong to the Embracer Group, the gigantic European video game company. However, the IP is from Bandai Namco.
What does this mean? Well, a Little Nightmares III is possible, but not by the hand of Tarsier. In fact, the Swedish studio is already working on a new horror game, whose teaser is a sea of doubt.
While Bandai Namco studies the possibility of developing a third game (with another developer, of course), the company has shared updated sales data for Little Nightmares until now.
Little Nightmares has already sold 12 million games till the date. Let’s remember that there are only three games, and that the first one did not have as much media coverage as the sequel released in 2021 would get.
This is what it says Lucas Roussel, editorial director and executive producer of the saga at Bandai Namco:
”Seeing how the community has grown over the years has been a blessing. When we started Little Nightmares, we thought we had something special, but we’re still amazed by our fans’ commitment to the franchise more and more each day. We can’t thank them enough for their dedication and we continue to work on what’s to come.”
