BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and Titan Comics have announced the creation of comics based on the upcoming, highly anticipated 3D puzzle-platformer Little Nightmares.

The new comic is written by Dan Watters and Alex Paknadel (writers of Assassin’s Creed: Uprising) with art by Aaron Alexovich (Heart Shaped Skull, Serenity Rose).

The Little Nightmares video game is scheduled to hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam platforms on 28th April 2017 and, to tie-in with the release, Titan Comics’ Little Nightmares Issue #1 hits stores in May.

Strange, spooky and surreal, Little Nightmares is the first collaboration between BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and Tarsier Studios – the Swedish team best known for their award winning work on a PS Vita game in 2012.

The Little Nightmares four-issue mini-series delightfully connects to the deranged video game, which follows Six, a little girl, who tumbles into a den of ravenous creatures beneath The Maw – a grim feeding trough for the swollen, corrupted souls of the world. A place where excess is encouraged and dark secrets kept far out of sight.

“As an entertainment company our vision is to go beyond our games and use several formats such as comic books to tell great stories,” commented Hervé Hoerdt – Vice President of Marketing & Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.

“With these comics, fans will be able to dive deeper into the vast universe of Little Nightmares and learn more about events connected to the game and beyond.”

Little Nightmares further expands the strong relationship between Titan Comics’ and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and adds to the portfolio of successful comics based on gaming properties Dark Souls and the upcoming TEKKEN.

• The Little Nightmares video game will release on 28th April 2017 in digital and physical format on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC
