Tarsier’s father or mother firm, Embracer Group, made the announcement in its Q3 earnings report (thanks, IGN). “Tarsier Studios’ sport Little Nightmares 2 was printed [by Bandai Namco] and was nicely obtained by its viewers. Tarsier Studios will, any further, give attention to creating new IPs.”
Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors mentioned throughout a firm webcast that he was thrilled for Tarsier Studios on the success of Little Nightmares II, however mentioned because the IP is owned by Bandai Namco, Tarsier will transfer on to various things. “It is an IP [Tarsier] created, nevertheless it’s owned by Bandai Namco and printed by Bandai Namco, so it would not actually have any vital business affect for us, regardless that if it does rather well, it might have some royalty revenues over time.
“Now, having that sport created, they are going to transfer over to create new IPs, and I am tremendous excited, and that was the principle cause we made this acquisition a bit over a yr in the past.”
As Bandai Namco owns the franchise, it is doable that the Little Nightmares IP might be given to a different studio underneath Bandai Namco, however from the feedback Embracer Group has made, it appears that evidently Tarsier may not get the possibility to develop a 3rd entry into the Little Nightmares sequence.
Little Nightmares II launched final week, and we gave the creepy horror sequel a 4/5 in our overview, due to its splendidly unnerving and atmospheric world and grotesquely imagined characters.
