The 16-bit beat ’em up arrives just in time for season 3.
BonusXP’s companion title to Stranger Things: Season 3 is now available with Stranger Things 3: The Game. Along with featuring events from the series, the developer also promises new quests, interactions between characters, and secrets. There’s also a nice retro 16-bit style in keeping with the series’ 80s themed setting. Check out the launch trailer below.
With a number of different characters, each utilizing their own skills and abilities, players will explore the town of Hawkins. Along with solving puzzles, they’ll also battle enemies from the Upside Down. The game is a beat ’em up, which means you can team up with another player for some classic two player local co-op.
Along with 12 total characters (some which have to be unlocked), players will also be able to craft different trinkets. These will help provide an advantage in combat and further specialize abilities. Stranger Things 3: The Game is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
