Last week, I attended a Netflix Games Press Briefing where Leanne Loombe (Vice President, External Games) of Netflix discussed some of the new games coming to the service, plans for the rest of the year, and more. Ubisoft’s Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace, one of the three Netflix Games titles planned, was officially announced to release on April 18th. Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace follows Valiant Hearts: Coming Home as Ubisoft’s second game on Netflix Games. Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace has an improved take on the formula with a deeper narrative and more over the top gameplay. Alongside Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace, Netflix also announced that about 40 games are slated to hit the service this year. Watch the Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace trailer below:
In terms of new announcements, Netflix also revealed a new game in development from Super Evil Megacorp (Vainglory and Catalyst Black) is working on an exclusive game based on a new Netflix release. More details for this will be revealed later in the year. Netflix also has 16 games in development at its in-house studios. Netflix is aiming to deliver games across indies, RPGs, puzzles, and more genres to build its portfolio following the launch.
Netflix also confirmed that a new Too Hot to Handle game is in development at Nanobit following the Season 4 release. The event also featured ustwo announcing that both Monument Valley and Monument Valley 2 are coming to Netflix Games. Netflix has a game I’ve been looking forward to playing, Terra Nil, arrive on March 28th. I’ll have a review of that around launch. Netflix Games is definitely on a roll lately with releasing more games I want to play. I’m looking forward to seeing what else hits the service. What do you think of Netflix Games’ lineup so far?
