Just over six months since its original PlayStation 4 release, Little Nightmares II has announced its native PS5 version will be available starting today. Dubbed Little Nightmares II: Enhanced Edition, current owners receive a free upgrade and gain access to two different modes: one runs at 30 frames-per-second with a 4K resolution and ray tracing while the other opts for 60 frames-per-second with a dynamic resolution and ray tracing. Rather interestingly, it looks like Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games helped get the Enhanced Edition ported to PS5.
Alongside the two graphical options, Little Nightmares II on PS5 also has "ray-traced reflections, increased volumetric shadows and particles, improved loading times and a new immersive 3D soundscape mix when using a 5.1 / 7.1 audio system". According to a PlayStation Blog post, these enhancements have had the biggest impact on the Hospital chapter. Associate producer Coralie Feniello explains: "In the Hospital, we quickly decided to try to add ray-traced, real time reflections on the ground of all the indoor environments. This made the Hospital corridors come to life and reinforce the desired feeling of uneasiness while discovering its not-so-friendly residents."
The game sold more than one million copies in its first month on the market, and now those owners can enjoy an even better experience on PS5. Are you up for a Little Nightmares II replay? Let us know in the comments below.
