Stranger Things 3: The Game Is Creeping Onto All Platforms

Stranger Things 3: The Game Is Creeping Onto All Platforms

Stranger Things is a Netflix production.

On Thursday night during The Game Awards, Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer revealed the trailer for an all-new video game called Stranger Things 3: The Game, that will have ties to the Netflix show's third season.

Much like the third season, there's now no release date for the game, although it's reportedly set to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Mac, PC, and mobile devices. It's a little shocking to see child characters in the trailer kill countless guards in cold blood, but it's all in service of that old school gameplay.

The Game will release on consoles and PC next year.

The first title based on the show, Stranger Things: The Game, was released on iOS back in 2017 favorable reviews.

It appears to be a beat-em-up game in the vein of the popular games of the genre from the 16-bit era, with some light puzzle elements as well based on what we were able to glean from the short trailer.

This marks the second time Netflix and developer BonusXP have teamed up for a Stranger Things video game.

Stranger Things 3 The Game was announced to be coming to "all platforms" with the teaser pointing towards a summer 2019 release date - presumably to coincide with the third season of the show.
