Today, throughout Nintendo Switch’s particular indie showcase, developer BonusXP introduced that its upcoming retro-style, pixel-art journey, Stranger Things 3: The Game, will launch on July 4, the identical day the third season of the favored Netflix present airs. At the second of publishing, it is unclear if the sport is just launching on Nintendo Switch today, or its different platforms as nicely. You’d presume the latter is the case, but it surely’s at present not specified.- Advertisement -
Whatever the case, a brand new trailer displaying the sport off was launched to accompany the announcement. You can test it out under, courtesy of Nintendo:

Details on the sport are at present fairly mild, however we do know gamers with be exploring Hawkins, fixing puzzles, and battling no matter emerges from The Upside Down. The sport options 12 playabale characters, and is playable from begin to end in co-op, although solely domestically.
It’s attention-grabbing to see Netflix hand over one among its most dear IPs to a smaller indie studio to create a smaller indie sport. Either Netflix would not imagine within the potential of video games that a lot or it might’t get any good pitches for a Stranger Things sport to land on its desk. I’m not saying the sport from DoubleXP appears to be like unhealthy, but when I used to be Netflix and I wished to make a Stranger Things sport, I’d exit and get a AAA studio to make a AAA sport. I do not know, I assume Stranger Things simply looks like too large of an IP to easily make a smaller indie title out of.
Whatever the case, the sport is releasing this July, and on the very least it has some launch synergy going with the brand new season of the present. Speaking of the present, a brand new trailer for it was launched in the present day, which you’ll be able to get pleasure from by clicking proper right here.
