Latest Trailer Kills Main Character Several Times, Reveals Special Edition

Latest Trailer Kills Main Character Several Times, Reveals Special Edition

Most trailers show off how good it feels to succeed at the game in question. In Little Nightmares' latest trailer, it seems like killing off the main character is the best way to show the game off.

It fits with the game's theme, however. Little Nightmares is a dark game where death is around every corner, so seeing some of the ways main character Six can die (such as falling through the floor or getting stuffed inside a raw fish) is a good way to let players know what they're getting into.

If that does sound like something you'd be into, the trailer also details the features of the game's Six Edition, which includes a special figure of Six, a soundtrack CD, a sticker board, and a poster. You can watch the trailer below.
