In addition to the official announcement, Bandai Namco also released a new teaser trailer. The trailer provides hardly any salient information, but it does reveal the tone of the game — which appears to be a mysterious/dark type.
Little Nightmares follows a “dark, yet whimsical tale” that sees player s confront their childhood fears as they help a little, yellow raincoat wearing girl escape the clutches of The Maw — a vast, mysterious vessel that has been corrupted by souls seeking their next meal.
No further information was divulged. Bandai Namco has promised more information at Gamescom.
It’s hard to have an opinion with such little information. But the teaser trailer looks cool and eerie. And I like cool and eerie, so I guess that’s good news. Additionally, from the look of the trailer and the studio, this is likely a smaller, $20 game.
