We are still a few seasons away from the arrival of Stranger Things 3 but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to talk about the upcoming video game from indie developer BonusXP. You may recall some news last summer in which Netflix announced a partnership with Telltale to develop a video game based on the hit TV show. A few months later, the studio closed its doors for good, leaving the project as it was originally envisioned cancelled, but the streaming giant vowed to continue exploring their options with respect to creating a Stranger Things video game.
It would seem those efforts paid off after with the announcement of Stranger Things 3: The Game last night at The Game Awards. In partnership with independent studio BonusXP, which is helmed by Dave Pottinger, Netflix has revealed that an official game is indeed coming. The title was officially announced at the show with a debut trailer, showing off retro-style graphics and gameplay fit for an era of classic gaming. It’s a little more Super Nintendo than what you would play in the ‘80s but we aren’t all that nitpicky. Check out the trailer below!
It looks like this game’s release should coincidence with the arrival of the next season of Stranger Things, which will return sometime next summer. We will keep you posted with all of the latest, including an official release date, as soon as we hear more.
