Cut the Rope 2, the sequel to the physics-based puzzler from Zeptolab, will launch as a universal app on iOS December 19.

The first artwork for the game, visible in the gallery below, shows the return of Om Nom, the candy-crazed protagonist of the first game, but he's also brought along some friends. Not much else about the sequel is known, but if you load up the original Cut the Rope right now, you'll notice a suspicious lack of Om Nom, who has been oddly replaced by a pair of spiders.
