Today, publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment and France-based developer Tarsier Studios announced they will be releasing a Little Nightmares Complete Edition for PS4 and Xbox One on October 27, 2017.
This physical package will obviously contain the full game, plus a downloadable voucher for the game’s season pass, which includes three additional chapters that tell a parallel story to the events of the game.
Offering an alternative perspective on Six’s journey, the three pieces of connected DLC will introduce a new playable protagonist called The Runaway Kid, a fellow prisoner looking for a way out of the dark depths of new areas of The Maw, the same colossal and frightening vessel that Six is trying to escape from.
The first chapter — The Depths — has already released, while the the second and third chapters are scheduled to arrive in November 2017 and January 2018 respectively.
For those of you who have never heard of Little Nightmares — here is a brief elevator pitch via the game’s Steam page:
Immerse yourself in Little Nightmares, a dark whimsical tale that will confront you with your childhood fears! Help Six escape The Maw – a vast, mysterious vessel inhabited by corrupted souls looking for their next meal. As you progress on your journey, explore the most disturbing dollhouse offering a prison to escape from and a playground full of secrets to discover. Reconnect with your inner child to unleash your imagination and find the way out!
Little Nightmares Complete Edition will cost $29.99 USD when it launches. Meanwhile, the original, base game is available on the aforementioned consoles and PC for $19.99 USD.
