Bandai Namco’s latest announcement showcases one of its upcoming titles, Little Nightmares 2. The company’s website now features a giveaway highlighting a custom Nintendo Switch console with a Little Nightmares 2 theme, along with other promotional gifts from the upcoming puzzle-platforming horror game.
Little Nightmares 2 is the upcoming sequel to Little Nightmares, originally released back in 2017. Little Nightmares was praised for its visuals and sound design, with many comparing the atmosphere of the game to movies by famed film director, Tim Burton. Now, 4 years later, Little Nightmares 2 is scheduled to release on Feb. 11. To hype fans for its release, Bandai Namco launched a new Little Nightmares 2 trailer today and made the previously PC exclusive demo available for consoles, along with some themed goodies as part of an online giveaway.
In October of last year, Bandai Namco released a “Stay Tuned” bundle for fans eagerly awaiting Little Nightmares 2 that included a copy of the game, character figurines, and other fun stuff. But this year’s giveaway easily tops the Halloween celebration. Front and center for the giveaway goodies is a custom Little Nightmares 2 themed Switch, which also comes with a custom dock and Joy Cons decorated with imagery from the game. The giveaway also includes the chance to win one of 4 different Launch Kits, which have various different Little Nightmares themed swag.
Each Launch Kit will contain a “Stay Tuned” bundle as well as some new accessories available. These include a Little Nightmares 2 themed reversible hat and patches featuring Little Nightmares protagonist Six and the protagonist for the upcoming game, Mono. There is also a burlap sack filled with mysterious items and, of course, a copy of Little Nightmares 2. For fans to have a chance at winning any of the limited memorabilia they must simply enter their name and email address on Bandai Namco’s website. They can also select which version of Little Nightmares 2 they would like to receive, with options for Switch, Ps4, and Xbox One. The giveaway ends when Little Nightmares 2 launches, so fans have a little less than a month to enter to win.
Ever since Little Nightmares 2′s first trailer was released last year, gamers have been speculating as to what changes might be implemented in the new game. One potential aspect of the game that garnered a lot of attention was the possibility for co-op considering both Six and Mono are featured in gameplay, but that hasn’t been implemented in Little Nightmares 2. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of fresh puzzle solving sequences to be mastered and unique ways to explore the game. Friends can still huddle together and help each other brave the terrors of Little Nightmares 2, because Mono and Six are far from alright.
Little Nightmares 2 launches February 11 for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with PS5 and Xbox Series X versions also in development.
