Bandai Namco announced Little Nightmares III during Gamescom Opening Night Live.

Unlike the previous two entries developed by Tarsier Studios, the third game will instead be developed by Until Dawn, The Dark Pictures and The Quarry developer, Supermassive Games.

What’s more, for the very first time in the series, you can play the whole campaign in co-op. I’m not sure if this will take some of the fantastic horror tension away, but if so, we’ll still have the option to play the game solo. That being said, considering that large parts of the previous two games feature an AI companion, co-op at least feels like a natural progression.

Little Nightmares III will also feature two new characters named Low and Alone. However, it will be interesting to see if previous characters from the series make an appearance. “In Little Nightmares III, players will follow the journey of Low and Alone, two friends looking for a way to get out of the Nowhere,” reads the press release from Bandai Namco.

“They will travel through the Spiral, a world filled with dangerous threats such as Monster Baby in the Necropolis. Each character carries its own iconic item – a bow and arrow for Low, a wrench for Alone – that they will use to solve puzzles and help them in their quest to escape.”

You can read my review of Little Nightmares and Little Nightmares II. When will the third game be released? All we know at this time is that Little Nightmares III will be released sometime in 2024 for PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
