Bandai Namco has announced that Little Nightmares II Enhanced Edition is now available, with a patch adding next-gen upgrades to the horror adventure.
Some of the new additions include Ray-Traced reflections, improved volumetric shadows and interactive particles to add more detail to the game. Audio gets a sprucing up too, with Immersive Audio added for those with surround sound speakers or headphones. Next-gen console owners will be able to run the game in one of two modes. Beauty Mode offers 30FPS at a hard 4K, while Performance Mode locks framerate at 60FPS with a dynamic 4K resolution.
The update is free to anyone who already owns the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. However, PC players will also get the new version via a free patch as well. If you want a preview without scaring yourself playing, there’s 30 minutes of 60FPS footage from the Enhanced Version below.
Our Josh was quite partial to the game’s brand of scares in his original review. “It’s worth pointing out that few other studios have the confidence to take this approach to horror: not to jolt you with sudden frights or to ration your ammunition, but to probe and puncture your emotional ease by putting foulness in such close proximity to the childish.”
Little Nightmares II Enhanced Edition is available now on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
