Netflix rolls out Stranger Things mobile game, diverse animation lineup

Nike Stranger Things Collection Release Date

Developers have found a victor and they're rolling with it which makes this next bit hardly a surprise.

Upside Down is the alternate dimension from the popular Netflix TV show Stranger Things that exists simultaneously along with the human world. Now, in an official press release-and in keeping with the show's mysterious narrative-Nike filled us in on the backstory behind reviving the '80s-inspired style. The location-based mechanics also involve a Google Maps integration.

"They developed this unbelievable '80s, retro, Saturday morning cartoon art style that we've absolutely fallen in love with". According to Next Games CEO Teemu Huuhtanen, "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".

Stranger Things is scheduled to be released in 2020, on iOS and Android.

"One of the fun parts of taking something so serious as Stranger Things and turning it into a game is we get to latch onto levity and make the most of those moments", Pottinger said, noting that one of the game character's fighting skills features hair spray.

Will a Stranger Things video game resonate with fans? Also, her special move is called 'Nuke', which sounds very badass. Finnish publisher NextGames is doing the heavy lifting on the tech end of the game, which Chris Lee, Netflix's director of interactive games described as having an "amazing 80s, retro, Saturday morning cartoon art style that we've absolutely fallen in love with".
