Stranger Things is the show that everyone seems to love. Created for Netflix by the Duffer brothers, Stranger Things 3 is currently in production, set for release in 2019 sometime. Matt and Ross Duffer, being the geeks that they are, joined the Game Awards this year to reveal a game that will tie-in with Stranger Things 3.
What makes Stanger Things such a good and captivating show, is its brilliant pop culture references and its ability to stay true to the retro ’80s feel. The new game will tie into Stranger Things 3 and will follow the same cool nostalgic style of the show.

Stranger Things 3: The Game will be a 16-bit, arcade-style video game, featuring characters from the show’s main cast. Players will be able to follow along with the events of season 3, in the game, but the main plot/s of the game haven’t been revealed. Thanks to the show’s plethora of wild sci-fi events, scary monsters and bad guys (I’m looking at you, Papa), cool ’80s vibes, awesome characters and great music, Stranger Things 3: The Game is sure to be beyond retro cool.
In the reveal trailer for Stranger Things 3: The Game, we see Hopper and Joyce in a chaotic lab. It seems like their main mission is to navigate through the scary halls of the lab while battling bad guys. Lucas can also be spotted in the reveal trailer for Stranger Things 3: The Game in a section that looks like a food court in a mall.
This isn’t the first Stranger Things game to release, with BonusXP having released a mobile game in 2017 for Android and iOS devices, called Stranger Things: The Game. This game loosely follows the events of the first season of Stranger Things and is also a love letter to the ’80s and everything pop culture.
Not much else was revealed about the upcoming game to accompany season 3 of the super popular show.
Stranger Things 3 is set to be released in 2019. The game doesn’t have an official release date, with it probably going to become available for “all platforms” closer to when the show releases on Netflix.
