Stranger Things Season 3 arrives on Netflix on July 4th. A mobile game based on the hit sci-fi/horror series will arrive on iOS and Android platforms in 2020. It’s being produced by Next Games (known for its The Walking Dead games) and will be a location-based puzzle RPG.
The mobile game will reimagine the Stranger Things universe in the style of an 80’s Saturday morning cartoon. Through location-based mechanics and Google Maps integration, players can explore The Upside Down hidden around them in their daily travels and work with fellow fans to fight back its emerging evils.
Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO if Next Games tells us: “We are huge fans of Stranger Things and thrilled to work together with Netflix to bring our shared vision of Stranger Things into life in a mobile game format. Our core focus will be to deliver on Stranger Things’ rich and intense themes like friendship and supernatural adventure and translate these into snack-sized entertainment on your mobile device. Combined with Netflix’s second-to-none ability to reach audiences across the globe, we will deploy all of our accumulated creative and technological expertise to create a game for the fans of the series all around the world.”
