'Little Nightmares' release date news: Complete edition set for May release on Nintendo Switch

"Little Nightmares," a puzzle-platformer horror adventure game by Tarsier Studios, is coming to Nintendo Switch this May 18Bandai Namco Entertainment official website

Another acclaimed indie darling is coming to Nintendo Switch users this summer in the form of Tarsier studios' spooky puzzle-platformer "Little Nightmares."

The announcement, made during Nintendo Direct presentation last week, will see the horror-puzzler up for a May 18 debut on the Switch as a complete edition. It will come with all previously released downloadable content (DLCs) for the game since it launched specifically the "Secrets of the Maw" expansion pack, which saw its last installment drop not long ago.

Once it drops, all additional chapters such as "The Hideaway," "The Residence," and "The Depths" will be readily available for players to explore.

In addition to this complete version, players will be treated with a special in-game surprise that can be unlocked through the Pac-Man amiibo.

Through "Little Nightmares," players will be able to take on the role of a little girl named Six, who navigates her way inside the terrifying realm of the Maw, where all monsters imaginable inhabit. Users are tasked to guide the helpless little girl in order to return to her own world, by way of accomplishing different puzzles set in a vivid yet evocatively designed premise.

Before the official release confirmation, the game has already been released on the following platforms last year: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The complete edition of "Little Nightmares" will officially launch on the Nintendo eShop this May 18. As of present time, the game's price has not been released, although it will likely be revealed along with the game's Switch debut.

Elsewhere, other games which are slated for a port on the Nintendo Switch, as announced during the Nintendo Direct presentation, include "Okami HD," "Undertale," and "South Park: The Fractured But Whole." Aside from this, a new "Super Smash Bros." title has been confirmed for the console. Meanwhile, a release date for "Mario Tennis Aces" has been revealed.
