Little Nightmares 2 announced at Gamescom 2019

Little Nightmares 2 will take players into the terrifying outdoors

Austen Goslin (he/him) is an entertainment editor. He writes about the latest TV shows and movies, and particularly loves all things horror.

Little Nightmares is getting a sequel and it looks just as creepy as the first game. Little Nightmares 2’s first trailer was revealed at Gamescom Opening Night Live, and the game’s senior narrative designer, Dave Mervik, was on-hand to give a few extra details about the sequel.

While the first Little Nightmares was entirely focused on Six as she attempted to make her way out of the Maw, the sequel will give her a little companionship with a new character called Mono. According to Mervik, Mono and Six will journey to a place called the Signal Tower, which will play a central role in the story.

The trailer doesn’t give many details away about the game, but we do see a few outdoor environments, something that wasn’t really in the first game. Mervik, mentions that the sequel will take Mono and Six through areas like the woods and abandoned shacks, so it seems that this game could be significantly bigger than just the Maw that Six explored in the first game.

Another departure from the original that Mervik revealed is that Little Nightmares 2 will feature some combat. The trailer shows off a few kitchen utensils that appear to be the game’s weapons. Mervik says players can use to keep try to keep themselves safe, which probably means that they’re more for defending yourself than actually attacking anything.

Little Nightmares 2 is coming sometime in 2020 to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
