Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNaF) creator Scott Cawthon has recently released the trailer for his newest game. Called Five Nights at Freddy’s Sister Location, the game will focus on an all new and equally terrifying cast, including Funtime Freddy, Funtime Foxy, Ballora the ballerina, and Baby the clown. There are also rumored to be three more animatronics who were not shown in the trailer: Bidybab, Ennard, and Minireena. Fall of 2016 is the date set for the game’s release, though as many fans know, Cawthon is famous for releasing his games long before the set date. As one critic under an anonymous name stated, “Fall of 2016? That’s a funny way of saying next week, Scott.”


  Five Nights at Freddy’s, the original series, focused on four main animatronics named Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, Foxy the Fox, and of course, Freddy Fazbear. The player is the security guard who keeps an eye on the animatronics during the nighttime hours  until 6 a.m. The main goal of the game is to keep an eye on the animatronics and keep them from reaching the security guard’s office or the game will end. Cawthon created three more horror games under the Five Night’s at Freddy’s name with more characters that the fans have grown to both love and hate.


  “I used to love the games, but the fanbase is so toxic that I just kind of lost interest. Honestly can’t say I’m excited,” said Kaelin Rork (10). For most other fans, they feel the same way. And for others, it was a complete surprise to hear that Cawthon was continuing the games. “I’m honestly surprised. I had thought he said he was done making the games, but he lied. Well, now that he’s making a new series, there’s bound to be some sort of Easter egg in the games,” said Zackary Dumas (10).


  With the return of the FNaF games comes the return of excited fans, fanart, and theories. Type in FNaF Sister Location and YouTube and guaranteed, there will be dozens of theory videos, even though Cawthon released the trailer around a week ago. Scott Cawthon’s Five Nights at Freddy’s has successfully captured a massive following with the four first games. With a possible four more on the way, Cawthon is taking advantage of his previous success.


Theories for Sister Location:

The Bonnie puppet on Funtime Freddy’s hand may be another surprise animatronic.

Ballora does not have open eyes in the trailer, which leads many to believe that she may be blind.

Ennard and Bidybab may be the two small toys hanging in the office area.

Baby is possibly a springlock suit, much like Springtrap from FNaF 3.

Funtime Foxy has two different colored eyes during a scene in the trailer.

Funtime Foxy may be what Mangle looked like before she was dismantled.
