Netflix is no stranger to gaming, and it's pouring more resources into seeing its star Netflix Originals show, Stranger Things, among favorite app store games.

The game is a partnership with Next Games, a Finland-based company best known for making the Walking Dead games. According to Variety, the game allows players to explore the series' evil dimension, the Upside Down, and will be location-based. During an E3 2019 panel, Netflix director of interactive games Chris Lee said the free-to-play Stranger Things game will adopt a 1980s Saturday morning cartoon art style.

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.

Also at E3 on Wednesday, Netflix confirmed that Stranger Things will be coming to Fortnite in some capacity in the coming weeks.

Furthermore, there is no reason not to believe that Epic would be willing to work with Netflix on this, considering that the've worked with other studios in the past to create in-game events marking the release of a popular film, such as the recent limited time modes for John Wick 3: Parabellum and Avengers: Infinity War.

Featuring three iconic Swoosh silhouettes including the Cortez, the Blazer, and the Tailwind, the Hawkins collection is painted in striking green, orange, and white tones, while the 'OG Pack' arrives in a patriotic palette that's inspired by Independence Day, which just so happens to be the date that the third season is dropping.

This isn't the end of Netflix partnering with game developers to make games. It'll be available globally on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, Android and iOS.
