A sequel to one of the best games of 2017, Little Nightmares, was announced for Gamescom 2019.
The sequel, simply titled Little Nightmares II, was announced with a trailer which revealed that the primary antagonist from the first game, Six, would be returning. But in a bit of a twist, we see that there will be a second character as well, implying that the game might have a co-op element. Also revealed is that the follow-up will take us away from the horrifying setting of the first game, The Maw, to new locations, and that there will be some combat situations.

This one automatically joins my list of most-anticipated games, even if we still have a little while to wait. I very much enjoyed the first one, and can’t wait to jump back into that world.
That said, one concern I have about Little Nightmares II is the co-op element. I have no problem with there being a co-op option—I’m sure it would be a lot of fun to play with a friend—but I really hope it’s not one of those games which requires you to play with someone, like last year’s A Way Out. As someone who usually plays solo, the option to play with an AI companion would be optimal.
I’m also a tiny bit worried about the addition of combat, as one of the best things about the first game was how vulnerable you felt with no way to defend yourself. But watching the trailer, it looks like combat isn’t something you’ll encounter too often thankfully.
