(Update) Little Nightmares II demo now on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch, original game being offered for free on Steam

Sweet Dreams

[Update: The Little Nightmares II demo is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.]

I know that you’ve probably only just woken up, but it might be time to go back to bed, as it appears that the demo for Bandai Namco’s Little Nightmares II has started to roll out on PS4 and Xbox One.

The demo, which was made available on PC back in late-2020, offers fans a sneak peek at the haunting sequel, allowing them to guide hero Mono through the creepy foliage of the “Wilderness” stage. Pick your way through the hazards to discover the Hunter’s cabin, but do try not to become the latest talking point of their trophy cabinet.

The demo quietly popped up on the Microsoft store overnight, though there has been no official announcement from either Bandai Namco nor developer Tarsier Studios. The demo has also been spotted on the PlayStation Network in selective territories, so if it is not currently accessible to you in your locale, be sure to check again later today. There is currently no sign of the Switch edition of the demo, but no doubt it is coming soon.

In addition, it appears that Bandai Namco is currently offering free Steam keys for the original release of Little Nightmares. Interested parties should head on over to the Bandai Namco website and open an account on-site in order to claim a code. As of this writing, there’s no word on how long this offer will remain valid, so move fast! Oh, and be aware that the site has been struggling a little under the influx of users, so expect a little pushback when applying.

Little Nightmares II will launch February 11 on PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, with PS5 and Xbox Series X editions to follow later in 2021.
