Stranger Things 3: The Game is an upcoming beat 'em up game based on the third season of Stranger Things and is developed by BonusXP, Inc.

It is currently slated to release on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Mac, PC, iOS, and Android on July 4, 2019.[1]


The game uses a 16-bit art style and is played in an overhead view, similar to its previous entry in the series. However, unlike the previous entry, the game supports both local co-op and solo gameplay. While playing solo, players can use “buddy commands” to control actions of both characters.[2]

Playable Characters

12 characters will be playable in the game, including Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Will, Hopper, Joyce, Jonathan, Steve and Billy.

Character Weapon & Skills Upgrades

Thinking Cap: Increases power of Psychic Push and decreases energy needed for Nuke.[3]


Hot Foot: Deals extra fire damage.[4]


The game will feature the same storyline of the third season of Stranger Things. In addition to the story, the game will also have sidequests.

According to Pottinger, co-founder and CEO of developer BonusXP, it will take 12-15 hours to complete the game.[5]



The announcement trailer was released at The Game Awards on December 7, 2018 showcasing Jim Hopper, Lucas, and Joyce fighting multiple foes in various areas.[6]

The first full-length gameplay trailer was released on April 3, 2019 that showcased the playable characters featured in the game.[7]
