How to Solve The Chess Puzzle in Little Nightmares 2 – Screen Rant

Chess Puzzles

Little Nightmares 2 took the original game to a whole new level. During Chapter 2, players will have to solve a specific chess puzzle to continue.

Little Nightmares 2 is the long await follow up to 2017's Little Nightmares. Bandi Namco knocked it clean out of the park with this 3D side-scrolling indy-like horror/adventure. The original game dialed up the freaky to a bone-shaking level. Little Nightmares 2 will have players jumping out of their seats from Chapter 1. Unfortunately, the only thing Little Nightmares 2 is missing is co-op compatibility. Don't let screenshots and video clips misconstrue that Little Nightmares 2 is still a single-player game. However, it is still a fantastic follow up to the original.

Little Nightmares 2 builds upon the world from the original game and the mechanics that players will use to make it from end to end. Little Nightmares 2 is full of puzzles to escape rooms, find hidden doors, and obtain keys. Players will be faced with the chess puzzle about 1/3 of the way through Chapter 2. Players do not have to be a chess savant to figure this one out. Here's how to solve the chess puzzle in Little Nightmares 2.

When players aren't fending off ravenous porcelain children or escaping the clutches of stretch-neck teachers, they'll be solving intricate puzzles to make it from room to room. Early on in Chapter 2, players will be separated from Six and will have to find her at all costs. This will bring them to a set of staircases reminiscent of multiple haunted mansions and the main lobby from Resident Evil: Biohazard.

Head up the middle staircase and then head left to find a lost soul to absorb. Head back around to the right and begin the chess puzzle. Players will notice two chess pieces on the floor, one black and one white. The top of the white piece has come detached and lays on the floor beside its base. Pick it up and place it on top to create a platform. Climb on top and jump for the doorknob. Now comes the more challenging part.

Players will enter a room with a massive chessboard (compared to the character's size) on the ground. A few black and white pieces strewn about the room will need to be assembled to solve the puzzle. Finally, a diagram on a wall to the right will show players exactly how they must set up the chessboard to complete the puzzle. That reference image is displayed above. The player's point of reference will be the black piece in the middle with a porcelain child tied to it and the three pieces surrounding it.

Step 1

Players should head back out the door they entered through and grab the top from the piece they first interacted with. Bring it back to the chessboard and place it on the piece in the back left. Then, climb up and jump to the table on the left. Pick this piece up and throw it down on the board.

Step 2

To the right of the reference image is a climbable table with a chess piece on top of it. Players don't need the piece, only the top. Climb up, remove the top, and throw it down to the floor. Bring it over to the chessboard and arrange all three pieces to match the reference image above. Players will know they've done it right when a light turns on over the table to the right.

Step 3

Climb up on the table, jump for the light and grab onto the handle. The light will pull down, and the bookshelf in the back of the room will split. Inside that room is a key on a chair.

At this point in the game, players have encountered and run from all sorts of horrifying creatures. Little Nightmare's blend of Studio Ghibli and Tim Burton-like art styles makes it one of the most artistically unique games we've seen in a while. We'll see what sort of DLC Bandi Namco has planned as they released three bundles with the original game. Will Co-op come to Little Nightmares 2? Players can only hope for now.
