Little Nightmares 2 Gets a Demo and a Comic Before February Launch

Games discussed:

Little Nightmares 2 is the spooky platformer sequel to 2017's Little Nightmares and as is often the case, a sequel means bigger things, even for a game with "little" in the title. 

A demo for the game has launched which will introduce the harsh world to players new and returning alike, and players can now access it for free on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms. When Little Nightmares 2 launches on February 11, it will come to last-gen platforms as well as PC, but an upgraded version is planned for later in 2021, and players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can transfer their purchases within the same ecosystem at no additional charge.

As the original did in 2017, Little Nightmares 2 will also get a tie-in comic that expands on the quiet (and disquieting) world of the sequel. The delivery system of such a comic has clearly changed in the four years between games, as the new comic will come via a dedicated app now available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Bandai Namco describes the comic as "interactive" and says the first two issues (or "episodes") are available now.

In addition to all of that, even more Little Nightmares 2 news comes in the form of an upcoming apparel collection to be browsed at the publisher's webstore, digital pre-orders have now gone live on Switch, and the first game is one of the Xbox Live Games with Gold for January 2021, so if you haven't played it yet and are a subscriber on Xbox, now's your chance to catch up before the sequel creeps out of the shadows on February 11.

Little Nightmares launched in 2017 to "Strong" reception on OpenCritic, with an average of 79 from 133 critics. Its sequel was announced during Gamescom 2019.
