Little Nightmares 2: Release Date, Gameplay and Story!

The dark, thrilling, and macabre Little Nightmares which saw players step into the shoes of Six, a precocious little girl in a bright yellow raincoat who dodged slobbering, children-eating beasts to escape imprisonment from a horrifying ship, is getting a sequel.

The conclusion of the original Little Nightmares’ left us with more questions than answers. Why was Six held captive in the underbelly of a massive ship? What is the meaning of the unsettling eye symbol that Six often saw? And who was that creepy masked female villain, draped in a brown Geisha kimono, that Six faced in the games’ conclusion?

Given Tarsier Studios’ reputation, it’s doubtful that any of these questions will be answered in the sequel. It’s more likely that we’ll be left with even more questions at the end of the sequel.

Here’s everything we know about Little Nightmares:

Release Date

The game which was originally scheduled for a 2020 release, got pushed further and is now slated for release on February 21st, 2021. The developers claim that the date was changed as “the game needed more love” before allowing fans to get their hands on it.

Little Nightmares 2 will be available on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. It will also arrive on Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 at a post-launch date in 2021. A free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series version of the game will be available to current-gen console owners.

Gameplay

Players will take control of Mono, who wakes up in a dark mysterious forest in front of an old Television. He quickly gathers himself and jogs through the wilderness. As Mono leaps over a gap, we spot a decomposing, fly-attracting corpse. The paper-bag wearing kid then crawls into a spooky tunnel. When Mono comes out on the other side, he encounters another disturbing scene — the gruesome aftermath of wanderers in the forest who stepped into a deadly booby trap. Mono doesn’t seem bothered by this, though. He continues to explore the spooky forest.

Mono sneaks into a run-down house that looks like a haunted shanty you’d find in a horror film. In this dwelling, Mono frees Six from the basement and he now has a useful companion who can guide him through this spine-tingling world. Six, however, does not return as a playable character — she will be an AI-driven sidekick. Although Six will follow Mono, Roussel wants fans to know that she’s far from a follower.

“Six remains faithful from what we have seen from the first game. We know that she’s an active character,” Roussel said in an interview. “Sometimes she will take the lead, depending on the situation. Sometimes, you will have to ask her to do something for you, like help you reach a platform or activate a mechanism.”Similar to it’s predecessor, Little Nightmares 2 utilises a side-scrolling gameplay as well as switches between 3D and 2D perspectives.

Story

Little Nightmares 2 is about the fascinating relationship between two kids on a journey to discover the dark secrets of a place called the Signal Tower after evading the bloodthirsty Hunter, escaping the sadistic Teacher and other terrifying, monstrous characters. The Signal Tower is an evil place that controls the Little Nightmares 2 world by sending malevolent signals to residents via TV screens.

“Something about Signal Tower sends out this pulse or transmission and it affects everyone around it,” Roussel said in an interview with Eurogamer.

Lastly, Tarsier Studios describes Mono as an “anti-hero.” This description insinuates that Mono may display qualities that do not align with good ethical judgement.

Fans of this unique artsy-horror genre can pick up this title on February 21st, 2021!
