  • Little Nightmares II (2) is the anticipated sequel to creepy puzzle-platformer Little Nightmares, except the horror is turned up a notch.
  • In our preview, we felt it was clear that the studio was doubling down on everything that made the first game so great.
  • You can check out a new Halloween trailer for Little Nightmares 2 right now.
  • Little Nightmares 2 comes out on Xbox, Playstation, Switch, and PC on February 11, 2021.

The popular Little Nightmares game is getting a follow-up with Little Nightmares 2, a puzzle-platformer with dark atmospheres and chilling sound design. If you're looking for another horror game to play, Little Nightmares 2 might be one to look out for, and now there's a new Halloween trailer to sink your teeth into. In our preview of Little Nightmares 2, we felt the game was shaping up to be a great follow-up to the first, albeit with the setting being a little more creepy.

Little Nightmares 2 is still a ways out, and isn't set to release until February 11, 2021 for Xbox (including Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S), Playstation (including Playstation 5), Nintendo Switch, and PC. However, you can pre-order the game right now if you're already sold on the idea. Little Nightmares 2 could be a great title, and may even find its way onto our list of best horror games for Xbox if our initial preview holds up for the whole game.
