A new job listing posted by Bandai Namco was recently spotted on LinkedIn. The listing is for an internship position as a producer assistant on the Little Nightmares IP at Bandai Namco Europe, suggesting a sequel may currently be in development or is about to be. Bandai Namco and developer Tarsier Studios recently announced that total sales for the Little Nightmares franchise have surpassed 12 million units. Little Nightmares first launched on 28 April 2017, and its sequel Little Nightmares II, launched on 10 February, 2021.
Details of each game via Bandai Namco:
Trapped in The Maw with nothing but her wits and a lighter, Six must find light in the darkness and strength in her weakness to survive the attentions of its monstrous residents and escape to the world outside. Be careful as each room is a cell, each resident a threat, and both puzzles to untangle. Hide and sneak from danger, climb your way out and escape the chasing monsters as The Janitor, the new character revealed in The Nine Deaths of Six trailer.
Little Nightmares II Enhanced Edition:
This update for Little Nightmares II has four features that will surround you with the sights and sounds of the Pale City like never before. Allow us to elaborate.
Ray-traced reflections let you see live reflections in shiny surfaces throughout the game, like the cold, damp tiles of the Hospital wards or the dull glass of a deactivated TV.
Improved volumetric shadows add even more depth and detail to every object and enhance how rays of light are interrupted by moving objects, like the Hunter ripping away at his prey in front of his boarded-up workshop window or the Doctor tending to his patients under a swinging ceiling lamp.
Interactive particles dance and swirl realistically through the air as characters move through a scene. It’s so evocative you might almost feel the need to sneeze when landing on a dusty rug in the attic or flinch when motes of burning ash spills through a furnace vent.
Immersive audio wraps you in a three-dimensional soundscape if you’re using 5.1 or 7.1 speakers or headphones. You’ll hear each echoing swat of the Teacher’s ruler getting closer and closer as you creep through the School’s air ducts and track the clatter of hordes of Patients as they snatch at you from the dark.
The combination of all these features creates a masterful experience rendered in crisp 4K resolution.
If you play on console, you’ll have the ability to choose two different modes to customize your gameplay. If you choose Beauty Mode, the game will run at 30 frames per second at 4K resolution. Performance Mode on the other hand locks gameplay at 60 frames per second with dynamic resolution up to 4K. PC players will be able to adjust these options independently.
