Bandai Namco announces 2021 release date for ‘Little Nightmares II’

A new creepy atmospheric trailer has also been released

Bandai Namco has announced that its upcoming horror-platformer, Little Nightmares II, will be released early next year.

Fans will be able to dive into the spooky adventure on February 11, 2021 when the title hits PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. A next-gen version for PS5 and Xbox Series X is scheduled to launch at a later date in 2021, and player who own a current-gen version will be eligible for a free upgrade.

In Little Nightmares II, players will control Mono, a boy wearing a paper bag over his head who is trapped within a nightmarish world. Accompanying him will be Six, the protagonist from the first game. Working together, the pair will navigate through Pale City by solving puzzles, avoiding the world’s horrifying inhabitants that are hunting them down and reach the Black Tower to escape.

Invoking vibes of works by visionary director Tim Burton, a new trailer showcases the moody atmosphere of Little Nightmares II and the menacing foes that wander through each level – such as the horrifying Hunter and the grotesque Teacher. Mono and Six are shown evading enemies, completing puzzles and hiding for survival.
