Developer Tarsier Studios’ critically acclaimed sequel Little Nightmares II is proving a big commercial success. Today, a press release reveals the game has already exceeded 1 million units sold just a month after its launch.
The franchise as a whole –the original game, its mobile spin-off Very Little Nightmares, and now Little Nightmares II– has now surpassed 5 million total players.
Herve Hoerdt, senior VP of marketing, content and digital at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe said in a statement:
“We’re very proud of the success of Little Nightmares and really grateful with how fans have embraced the universe through the games and the comics, putting their minds to work to find the wildest theories about Little Nightmares,
These are two important milestones for a franchise that we have nurtured and grown within BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and would not be possible without the amazing support from the Little Nightmares community. We can’t wait to share with you what’s next in the Little Nightmares universe.”
Twinfinite reviewed Little Nightmares II last month and was thoroughly impressed, scoring it 4.5/5 and concluding:
“Chase sequences and the overall ambiance are as bone-chilling and thrilling as ever, while puzzles are even more challenging and satisfying to complete thanks to the tragic duo of Mono and Six. Even if you aren’t a horror fan, I’d highly recommend you play Little Nightmares II, as it currently sits as my favorite game of 2021 so far.”
