Expect Netflix's new Stranger Things mobile game to arrive in 2020

We already knew about Stranger Things 3: The Game, which is due out on Switch, Xbox One and PS4 soon enough, but now we’re getting a brand-new mobile game to look forward to.

During the Netflix Panel at E3 2019, the streaming giant announced a free-to-play mobile experience that uses location and Google Maps. Hmm, sounds a little like Pokémon GO and Minecraft Earth.

“We are huge fans of Stranger Things and thrilled to work together with Netflix to bring our shared vision of Stranger Things into life in a mobile game format,” said Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO of Next Games, the company enlisted to bring Stranger Things to the small(er) screen.

“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.”

It isn’t coming out until 2020 though, so we’ll have to wait a while before we get our hands on it. In fact, Stranger Things Season 3 will be out well before then.

While we wait, you’ll want to pick up the new game in the meantime. Check it out below:

It’s all about that Stranger Things hype these days, as Nike has even revealed a special collaboration with the hit show and is releasing brand-new kicks.
