Rogue Games’ title preexists Netflix’s large foray into video games. In 2020, Arcanium: Rise of Khan launched on Steam. It however has received fairly positive user reviews. Currently, the game is only available on iOS. Though, an Android launch is expected “soon”.
“We’re thrilled to bring this best-in-class open-world strategy adventure card game to Netflix subscribers,” said Rogue’s chief strategy officer, Chris Archer. “Arcanium delivers hours of incredible roguelike deckbuilding gameplay with stunning visuals and controls tailored for touch screens.”
In addition to Arcanium: Rise of Khan becoming available, Netflix has also added Krispee Street, a ‘Where’s Waldo’ inspired game based on a popular webcomic series ‘Krispee.’ The game was developed by FrostPop, making it the fourth game from the studio to become available to Netflix subscribers.
As of now, Netflix has 12 titles available on mobile. Many of which are all centred on ‘Stranger Things’ and are pre-existing titles that have been folded in. That said, Netflix is continuously expanding in the mobile space, making it worth keeping an eye on throughout the year.
