What is a good advertisement for a game? A demo. What is an even better advertisement for a game? Give away the predecessor for free. Bandai Namco may have thought that. Since today you can Little Nightmares (Steam) can be picked up completely free of charge from the Bandai Namco official store, as Nerdy Dealer reports.
If there is something free, everyone is of course always there. The first batch of Steam-Key was quickly sold out. On the product page, Bandai Namco promises that the free promotion has been extended until January 17, 2021 and that there will be new keys tomorrow. So check back in and get your copy.
So. And what else was there? Yes, the demo mentioned at the beginning. If you already know Little Nightmares, you can take a look at the sequel with the demo released today. The demo has been available for PC-Steam since December and has now made it to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The switch version will specifically not be available until tomorrow after the eShop update.
Foretaste of Little Nightmares II
In the demo you take on the role of Mono and start your adventure at the lighthouse. Here begins a journey across a mysterious and eerie forest to a lonely forest hut, where you can free Six and work with him to escape the hunter.
Little Nightmares II is slated for release on February 11, 2021 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PCs. An improved version for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will then follow in the course of 2021.
