A new game is arriving to your mobile devices. Finnish developer Next Games is partnering with Netflix for a Stranger Things mobile game that should appeal to Pokémon Go fans.
Simply called Stranger Things, the ‘80s cartoon-inspired game is described as a location-based puzzle RPG. Players will be able to walk around the Upside Down according to a press release. Next Games is using Google Maps integrations so players can explore their own neighborhood with friends.
Next to Pokémon Go developer Niantic, Next Games is one of the foremost leaders in licensed, location-based games. The team also developed The Walking Dead: Our World, which uses Google Maps to create location-based gameplay objectives. Next Games’ Stranger Things is also completely separate from two previous Stranger Things games, which were in development with Telltale Games. Neither came to fruition after the company shuttered its doors suddenly last September.
