Netflix has created a Stranger Things video game that will soon be hitting your screens. At E3, the company announced it’s going to make video games based on its popular original shows. The plan is starting with its hit 1980s themed horror series Stranger Things. The Stranger Things video game will release on 4th July.
Players will get to experience the Upside Down an alternative dimension that’s part of the Stranger Things universe. The events will take place on screen based on their location.
Stranger Things Video Game
Chris Lee director of interactive games at Netflix said on stage at E3, “Shortly after season one of Stranger Things we realized this is a phenomenon. It was our first attempt at doing consumer products and merchandise. We had never done anything like that before.”
Nintendo showed off a new game that will be available on its Switch console based on the 1982 movie Dark Crystal that will be adapted into a Netflix series. Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will premiere in August. The show is distributed by Netflix and the game is developed by the studio BonusXP, which also makes Stranger Things: The Game and Stranger Things 3: The Game.
Doug Bowser president of Nintendo of America said that the mixing is a good opportunity for both sides to reach a broader audience. Adding more to the topic he said, “I think it’s interesting to see how various forms of entertainment are able to transfer themselves onto other platforms in other ways. It’s an exciting opportunity for all of us.”
Game Developers Conference
Netflix had previously announced the launch of “Stranger Things 3: The Game” for consoles and PCs back in December at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The video game will be available on July 4 alongside the release of the third season of the series.
Netflix is also making a turn-based tactical game based on the show The Dark Crystal.
