The Summer of Stranger Things continues with another announcement. This time it’s not a brand collaboration but instead Netflix is bringing us a Pokemon Go style game in the vein of Stranger Things. The announcement came during the E3 gaming conference in LA last week. They will be teaming up with Next Games to bring the adventure to life.

“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,” Next Games CEO Teemu Huuhtanen said in a press release.

The mobile game will re-imagine the Stranger Things universe in the style of an 80’s Saturday morning cartoon. Through location-based mechanics and Google Maps integration, players can explore The Upside Down hidden around them in their daily travels and work with fellow fans to fight back its emerging evils.

The game is due to arrive next year (2020) for both iOS and Android.
