Bandai Namco has announced a release date for creepy 3D platformer adventure Little Nightmares. Playing as a little girl called Six, you are aboard The Maw, a terrifying ship filled with corrupted souls trying to hunt you down. Little Nightmares will be coming to feast on you come April 28th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Ahead of then we've also got the official Little Nightmares system requirements, letting you know just what graphics cards you're going to need to get a playable frame rate.

Little Nightmares Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2115C 2.0 GHz or AMD Athlon II X3 460 3.4 GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU VRAM: 1.5 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 or AMD Radeon R7 265
  • DX: DirectX 11

Little Nightmares Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-860S 2.53 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU VRAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 6970

Despite being published by Bandai Namco, Tarsier Studios' Little Nightmares isn't a full-blown AAA title. It promises to be a lower-key experience which also means lower system requirements. It's why we see the Little Nightmares recommended PC requirements being on par with what we expect from minimum AAA game system specs. All you're going to need is a 2GB GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 6970 graphics card and you're going to be able to crank every setting to Ultra in Little Nightmares. The i7 requirement is a little steep but it is an older model. It's performance is now more than matched by most modern i5 CPUs.

Down at the minimum the processor requirements drop right down to a Core i3 and an Athlon II X3. This is right down at the lower end of the scale for a modern CPU so most should comfortably be able to meet these requirements. 6GB RAM is a little on the high side and we suspect you won't run into many issues with 4GB.

Lastly you can probably see there's very little disparity between the minimum and recommended graphics cards. Pound for pound all of these graphics cards are on roughly the same performance level, suggesting there is room to perhaps drop lower than this.

News of Little Nightmare's release date and system requirements was also joined by a brand spanking new trailer. You can wrap your eyes around that below.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Little Nightmares System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Little Nightmares GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Little Nightmares Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.
