The eerie universe of Little Nightmares is expanding once again. Little Nightmares III is going to break new ground with the two-player co-op coming to the series for the very first time.
Developers at Supermassive Games announced Little Nightmares III on the Opening Night Live at Gamescom. The announcement was a show-stopper. The game is scheduled for a 2024 release. Players will be able to explore its dark, surreal world on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
The innovative multiplayer experience forms the heart of the new game. It adds an exciting layer of complexity to the already engrossing Little Nightmares universe. The game’s reveal trailer offers a glimpse into the grim world inhabited by two puppet-like protagonists named Low and Alone. Players will embark on an adventure in this world where everything around them is magnified to colossal proportions.
Low and Alone must thread their way through hordes of ferocious creatures and monsters. They have to escape “The Nowhere” – an abyss of dread.
Here’s what publisher Bandai Namco has to say about the game: “Low and Alone are each equipped with their own iconic items that will allow you to solve various puzzles and defend yourself against the new and dangerous challenges that await you. You’ll be able to interact with the world using Low’s bow and arrows and Alone’s wrench, but you’ll also need your wits, tenacity, and creativity to survive your trip across the Spiral.“
Players can tread these treacherous paths alone if they will because Little Nightmares III retains the single player mode along with the co-op mode. Seemingly, the single player mode doesn’t take anything away from the gaming experience.
The game’s release in 2024 will be a landmark moment in the horror gaming genre. The innovative co-op mechanics, bone-chilling atmosphere, and spine-tingling narrative promises a solid experience for die-hard fans of the series.
