Announced in August 2019, the title is a follow-up to 2017’s million-selling Little Nightmares.
The original was also developed by Tarsier Studios, which has contributed to multiple LittleBigPlanet games and Tearaway Unfolded, and most recently made The Stretchers.
“You play as Mono, a determined child who is tracking down the mysterious Transmission that seems to be warping and corrupting everything it touches,” Bandai Namco says. “With his companion, Six, he’ll have to run, hide, and even fight to survive a surreal environment that has little care for children.”
IP owner Bandai Namco has released a fresh trailer for the game (above) and written an accompanying PlayStation Blog post introducing a new level, the Hospital, and its creepy inhabitants.
“The Hospital is the home of the Doctor and his Patients, each one a collection of clattering parts that lurch after anything unusual in their environment,” it says. “Save your sympathy, these hypochondriacs willingly came to the Hospital in search of a medical solution for the boredom infecting their lives. So the Doctor did what he could, taking away some bits and adding others as his artistic sensibilities saw fit. And once the process had begun, it’s not as if the Patients could voice a complaint.”
