Prepare yourself for a new interactive trip to the upside down: Telltale is working on a Stranger Things game in partnership with Netflix.
Yep, it’s been confirmed to Tech Radar that the folks behind The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us will be creating a new series for consoles and computers based on Netflix’s eerie and nostalgic pop culture phenomenon. The current buzz is that it’ll star a new cast of characters with the show’s regulars popping in from time to time. Let’s hope we can hang with Dustin and Steve smacking some Demodogs!
The choose-your-own-adventure masters discussed the news further in a series of tweets, which also confirmed that Minecraft: Story Mode will be heading to Netflix as an “interactive adventure.” It won’t be a traditional game release but will be similar to the streaming service’s other interactive stories such as Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile.
Separately, we're thrilled to confirm that Telltale is developing a game based on Stranger Things that we'll publish to consoles and computers at a later date. (2/3)

Sadly, that’s all we have right now, but Telltale has said that more information will be made available later this year.
Until then, we have The Walking Dead: The Final Season debuting in August, plus The Wolf Among Us: Season 2 at some point in 2019.
