Little Nightmares II was a surprise reveal from the development Tarsier Studios at Gamescom 2019. The studio kept things hush-hush until it was ready to unveil it onto the masses. While the Gamescom 2019 unveil only showcased a small announcement trailer, we learned a few little tidbits about the overall title. For starters, we know that the story will take place in a new area and even a brand new protagonist. However, some of the more fine details have been kept a secret from fans until it gets closer towards its release date.
With that said, we do know that the game will be quite a bit longer compared to Little Nightmares. This bit of news comes from Twinfinite who was at Gamescom and got a chance to speak with Producer Lucas Roussel and Senior Narrative Designer, Dave Mervik. It was then unveiled that Little Nightmares II would be longer while also adding more environments, variety, and enemies. This was after some of the feedback came in from the first Little Nightmares.
Likewise, it looks as if there will be some adjustments to the loading times and checkpoints placed throughout the game. Regardless, fans of the first installment are likely eager to try the upcoming sequel that is slated to release at some point next year, 2020, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC platforms. In the meantime, you can check out the first trailer for Little Nightmares II above along with some screenshots of the game below.
