Little Nightmares II is a sequel to the horror platformer by the independent Tarsier Studios, released in 2017 by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game was first released on PCs and PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, and then published on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Plot

In Little Nightmares II, the heroine of one, Six, returns. However, this time she is not alone and acts as a guide. The main character is a boy named Mono, who, together with a girl, has to face the threat lurking in a new place, distorted by a transmission from a distant Signal Tower hiding many dark secrets.

The protagonist of the game goes on a journey, full of obstacles and hindered by the terrible inhabitants of the rotting world, to a mysterious tower to discover the source of evil spreading through the TV screens and save Six from a terrifying fate. Mono is her only hope.

Mechanics

The most important change compared to the first Little Nightmares is the presence of two characters who work together during the game, especially when overcoming traps and solving puzzles similar to Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Second part of the series also abandon The Maw known from the previous adventure in favour of new locations in which the previously unseen dangers are lurking. During the adventure, we visit dark forests, terrifying streets or schools full of sinister residents changed by the transmission.

As in the first part, the game is still about jumping from one platform to another, overcoming obstacles, solving environmental puzzles that require logical thinking and escaping from the sight of twisted, overgrowned inhabitants in a horror atmosphere. The player must continue to be vigilant at every step and make as little noise as possible to avoid being detected by ominous enemies such as the sadistic teacher or the bloodthirsty hunter.

Game modes

Little Nightmares II is for single player only. The second character is controlled by artificial intelligence, which reacts according to the situation and behaviour of the character we control.

Technical aspects

The graphics in Little Nightmares II are in the same style as in the first part. The dense, dark atmosphere and grotesque aesthetics dominate. The quality of the graphics has been raised in relation to its predecessor, and the background music and disturbing sounds of the surroundings only further emphasize the horror atmosphere and constant anxiety.

Owners of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions have received a free game update for PS5 and Xbox Series X, enjoying the benefits of the next generation console versions (including better graphics or more smooth animation).
