Earlier this week, Tarsier Studios announced Little Nightmares II for release sometime in 2020.
In the reveal trailer shared at Gamescom 2019, it was shown that the new protagonist Mono would be joined on his adventure by the original protagonist Six from the first Little Nightmares. While many assumed that this meant the sequel would feature cooperative multiplayer, Tarsier Studios have since confirmed that the game is in fact single player only, with Six remaining AI-controlled throughout the experience.
Speaking to Gaming Boulevard, Tarsier explained that co-op was considered at one point during development, but the team found that it took too much away from the game’s intended atmosphere and tone. To that end, they decided to ditch multiplayer and focus on making Little Nightmares II a satisfying single player experience.
It was just the wrong choice, It’s important that we have control over the tension and the tone… so we just knew that it was the right thing to go singleplayer.
