If for some reason you still haven’t delved into Tarsier Studios and Bandai Namco’s Little Nightmares series, it’s hard to imagine why. Publisher Bandai Namco has announced that the Little Nightmares games have now sold more than 12 million units sold across PC and consoles.
“The Little Nightmares franchise has seen some great growth and success since the first episode, which was released six years ago”, said Arnaud Muller, CEO of Bandai Namco Europe. “We are proud of the work accomplished by the teams at Bandai Namco Europe along with Tarsier Studios, Engine Software and Supermassive Games to make great games while at the same time expanding the franchise to more media.”
While it all sounds great, the question of what’s next for the franchise is an intriguing one. Tarsier Studios is now owned by Embracer Group, having acquired the developer back in 2019. Bandai Namco still owns the rights to the Little Nightmares series, and from the sounds of things, is still looking to continue the franchise.
According to Lucas Roussel, Publishing Director and Little Nightmares Executive Producer at Bandai Namco Europe, Bandai Namco are “still amazed” by fans’ commitment to the franchise. As such, the publisher is “continuing to work on what’s next for the franchise.”
