Little Nightmares Franchise Has Sold Over 12 Million Units

Bandai Namco announced that the Little Nightmares franchise has sold over 12 million units worldwide, which aligns with the series’ 6th anniversary.

The franchise has received several games that take place within the very dark Little Nightmares world. Beginning with 2017’s Little Nightmares from publisher Bandai Namco and developer Tarsier Studios, the game would introduce the character of Six to players as they attempt to escape the Maw, an underwater vessel filled with strange, scary stuff.

The follow-up release was Little Nightmares II in 2021, where players meet Mono, a young boy with a paper bag on his head, meeting the girl in the yellow raincoat. This encounter leads them to explore various locations in Pale City, a place distorted by the humming transmission of the Signal Tower.

There’s also 2019’s mobile release, Very Little Nightmares, developed by Alike Studio, where players get a bit of Six’s backstory.

“The Little Nightmares franchise has seen some great growth and success since the first episode, which was released six years ago today”, said Arnaud Muller, CEO of Bandai Namco Europe S.A.S. “We are proud of the work accomplished by the teams at Bandai Namco Europe S.A.S. along with Tarsier Studios, Engine Software and Supermassive Games to make great games while at the same time expanding the franchise to more media”

“Looking the community growing over the years has been a blessing”, added Lucas Roussel, Publishing Director and Little Nightmares Executive Producer at Bandai Namco Europe S.A.S. “When we started Little Nightmares, we thought that we really had something special, but we are still amazed every day by our fans’ commitment to the franchise. We can’t thank them enough for their dedication and we are continuing to work on what’s next for the franchise.”

Little Nightmares is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Little Nightmares II is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Very Little Nightmares is available on iOS and Android.
