We now have even more Stranger Things content to look forward to than we thought following the announcement of a Stranger Things RPG.
Netflix has become a bigger part of our lives than most of us could have ever imagined. At last count, Netflix had 139 million subscribers worldwide. Not only did that last count take place six months ago, but that also doesn't include all of the people who are leeching off of other subscribers' accounts. Yes, we know you're watching, and one day we might choose to do something about it.
Netflix shows no sign of slowing down, though. On top of the almost countless TV and movie projects it continues to pump out, the streaming service has now dived head first into the video game world. It was even at E3 for the first time ever this year. At the conference, Netflix revealed that a Stranger Things RPG is in the works.
As with almost everything at this year's E3, the game will be released in 2020. Other than that, details on the project were pretty scarce. Netflix has partnered with Next Games to bring the RPG to life and judging on the little that was revealed, it sounds sort of like Pokémon GO meets Stranger Things, reports Polygon.
If that presumption turns out to be true, we'd be more than happy. It also sounds as if the game will be in keeping with the era during which the Stranger Things TV show is set. Director of Interactive Games at Netflix Chris Lee describes the RPG's style as being "80s retro, Saturday-morning-cartoon style." Again, something we are entirely on board with should that promise wind up coming to fruition.
While the bad news is that the game will not be released until next year, the good news is Stranger Things fans don't have long to wait for season three. Plus, Stranger Things 3: The Game will be released for Nintendo Switch on the same day. After you've played through that and binged watched the entire new season in the space of a day like we inevitably will, you'll have to wait until 2020 for anything new from the Netflix hit.
