Little Nightmares 3 has been announced at Gamescom ONL, marking the next entry in a series of a very fun but haunting series of indie games - and we've already got some details on its platforms and an announcement trailer to mull over.

Developed by Supermassive Games - the studio that brought us Until Dawn - instead of Tarsier Studios, we already know a few tidbits of what players can expect to get up to in Little Nightmares 3, from playing co-op or choosing between two different characters.

Keep reading for a rundown of everything we know about Little Nightmares 3 so far, which is due out in 2024.

In Little Nightmares 3's adventure, you're able to choose between two different characters, both with their own sets of iconic items: Alone or Low. You can also opt to play the story solo, with an AI, or as a first in the series, with a friend in online co-op.

As you traverse through the Spiral, and attempt to help Alone and Low to navigate out of the Nowhere, there will be unsettling locations to explore, ranging from a fun fair to a desert, a gloomy factory, and much more. 

Of course, the foes of the game will be as horrifying as always, with beetles and giant babies being what we've seen so far of the enemies that will be tormenting you this time around. 

Little Nightmares 3 announcement trailer

During August 2023's Gamescom Opening Night Live, an atmospheric announcement trailer for Little Nightmares 3 was revealed, featuring a window into the gameplay that players can expect to experience throughout their horrifying journey.

Showing the two central characters navigating through eerie environments and interacting with the world, trying to avoid what appears to be a large, hulking porcelain doll of a baby, it's clear that gamers will be in for a spooky ride when Little Nightmares 3 arrives.
