Titan Comics has partnered with Bandai Namco and Sony to bring to comic books the story of the new video game Little Nightmares. The game is set to launch in April 2017, the comic following slightly behind in May 2017. The four-issue mini-series will work into the video game, following Six, a little girl who accidentally finds herself in a den of creatures that want to eat her. The place is called The Maw, and it is designed as a feeding trough for the corrupt souls of the world. In this land, excess is encouraged and dark secrets are hidden.
“As an entertainment company our vision is to go beyond our games and use several formats such as comic books to tell great stories. 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.” said Hervé Hoerdt – Vice President of Marketing & Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.
Issue #1 of Little Nightmares is written by Dan Watters and Alex Paknadel. Both have worked for Titan before on Assassin’s Creed: Uprising. The art is done by Aaron Alexovich of Heart Shaped Skull.
