At The Game Awards tonight, a new game based on Stranger Things was announced, again from developer BonusXP. In 2017, BonusXP released Stranger Things: The Game, a mobile game with a retro flair. The new follow-up, Stranger Things 3: The Game, will be based on the upcoming third season of Stranger Things.
In a tweet from Netflix promoting the 16-bit game, it's confirmed that this new Stranger Things game won't be just for mobile—it's coming to "all platforms." Previously in the Stranger Things games canon, Telltale Games was set to develop its own licensed take (unrelated to BonusXP's game) on Stranger Things, but it was unfortunately canceled earlier this year alongside other projects when the studio laid off the majority of its staff. At least we have Stranger Things 3, the season and the video game, on the horizon.
