We consider two-dimensional supergravity theories with four supercharges constructed from compactification of Type II string theory on a generic Calabi–Yau four-fold. In type IIA and type IIB cases, respectively, new superspace formulations of N = (2, 2) and N = (0,4) dilaton supergravities are found and their coupling to matter multiplets is discussed.
