Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for Little Nightmares II and enlisted the help of illusionist Derren Brown to give a crash course on nightmares. He talks of dream theories by Friedrich Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud, but also gives a different take on nightmares. Instead of being dark dreams nightmares are a malevolent force that have been preying on humans for time immemorial. It is probably not a good idea to watch this trailer before you go to bed as it gets suitably creepy.
A demo for Little Nightmares II is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. The demo will let you play through the Wilderness level and encounter its bloodthirsty Resident, the Hunter, giving you a taste of what’s ahead in the full game this time next month. It is a nice little primer before Little Nightmares II is released.
Stefan had some hands on time with a preview build of Little Nightmares II a few months ago, writing:
Little Nightmares II looks set to pick up right where the original game and its DLC left off, filled with a thick atmosphere and creepy new situations to find yourself in. Would that it could come out this month in time for Halloween, we’ll have to wait a few months longer until 11th February 2021 to continue the horrible little adventure.
The original Little Nightmares released back in 2017. Tuffcub reviewed the game and he said:
Little Nightmares is something of a minor classic. Gorgeously gross and surprisingly inventive, it creates a genuine feeling of terror and tension. It’s a bit odd to say a game that involves skipping over corpses is enjoyable, but it is, just don’t blame Tarsier if you have nightmares.

Little Nightmares II will be available from February 11th on PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Switch. A PS5 and Xbox Series X|S version will be released at a later date.
