There’s another Stranger Things game on the way. The show’s creators Matt and Russ Duffer unveiled the trailer for the release at this year’s Game Awards on Thursday. Watch it above.
According to Variety’s report, the game is set to follow the events of the show’s upcoming third season.
As we can see from the teaser, parts of the game look set to take place within the shopping mall we saw in the show’s latest trailer. There’s also a focus on the mall’s cinema in the game trailer, which could be a hint to where some of the major action will go down in the upcoming.
The game was developed by Netflix and Bonus XP — as was the first Stranger Things game — and together they have crafted a retro-style action-adventure RPG designed to pay homage to the 16-bit gaming era (which began in 1987, so that may be when Season 3 is set).
Stranger Things 3 game will be available to play on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Mac, PC, and mobile. The release date of the game is still TBC, but Stranger Things season three is slated to arrive summer 2019.
