Games Coming Q1 2023
Netflix also shared about a few games that are coming in Q1 2023, as follows:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is limited to Netflix users. In this ’80s-inspired beat ’em up, players may kick the shell with Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo.
In Vikings: Valhalla, players rule violent tribes and develop settlements. As their support grows, they’ll conduct wars and expand their dominance. To claim a stake in the ever-changing power balance will involve courage, wit, and innovation.
Starting today, users of the Netflix mobile app on their Android or iOS devices can find the above-mentioned games, as well as many others, within the app.
Announcing the new games, Netflix shared in a blog post that:
It’s hard to believe that it was only in November 2021 that we announced our ambition to launch games on Netflix as a way to bring even more entertainment to our members. Since then, the game catalog has grown from zero to 48 games, representing many genres, award-winning titles and beloved independent games.
While this is only the beginning, we’re excited to continue bringing more games to our members in the years to come — from our amazing developer partners and our six internal game studios — to offer something for everyone.
