Oxenfree II: Lost Signals emerged as the sequel of the 2016 indie hit Oxenfree. This latest game originated from developer Night School Studio and it looks as eerie as ever. Like the original game, the sequel is a supernatural mystery game full of strange radio frequencies and paranormal happenings.
Revealed at Nintendo’s April 2021 Indie World showcase, the game is a genuine surprise. While the original was a critical hit when it came out in 2016, the studio had since moved on from the IP with its follow-up Afterparty. Now it’s returning to the world of Oxenfree for a promising sequel that’ll deepen the franchise’s mysteries. Here’s everything you need to know about Oxenfree II: Lost Signals.
Oxenfree II: Lost Signals – Trailer
Oxenfree II: Lost Signals trailer looks very promising since it was first shown at Nintendo’s April 2021 Indie World Showcase as a final surprise. The game looks very much like its predecessor with big atmospheric landscapes, though the visuals look a little buffed up. The trailer includes plenty of creepy static and a whole radio tuning section that should look familiar to fans.
At the moment, the game will only be available on two platforms: Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. The trailer doesn’t mention PlayStation or Xbox, so it’s likely that it won’t come to those systems for a bit. The first game was initially launched on Xbox One and Windows before coming to PS4. A Switch release came when that console launched in 2017. All that considered, console exclusivity is a major get for Nintendo.
At the moment, the game doesn’t have an exact release date. However, Night School says it’s coming sometime in 2021. This year marks the five-year anniversary of the original game, the timing here is just about perfect.
