Bandai Namco previously said it plans to unveil “a new IP published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for a western audience” at Gamescom 2016.
Gematsu discovered a trademark for “Little Nightmares” back in May. It was registered alongside the similar-in-theme “Children of the Maw” and “Grim Lullabies.”
Finally, NeoGAF users have uncovered a game called Little Nightmares from independent Swedish developer Roboed Games, but all updates on its Twitter and blog ceased in March 2015. It is described as “a horror game where you play as a schizophrenic eight year old.” It is unknown if there’s any connection.
