Netflix has added three new mobile games to its catalog, and as far as we can tell, they’re all extremely interesting. Some of them might just spark fond memories.
The highlight is, without fail, Hello Kitty Happiness Parade, an extremely cute and cuddly game from Rogue Games, in which three players can dance down the street while collecting coins and annoying the fun-hating Kuromi. It’s not necessarily the most complex game, but you might enjoy playing it, considering it has a rather “kawaii” aesthetic.
Another title, Neowiz’s Cats & Soup, puts you in the position of helping cats make soup. Fortunately, this is more of a relaxing game than a Neko-Atsume-meets-Overcooked crossover.
A simple Netflix subscription brings you closer to Hello Kitty
As with other mobile versions of Netflix games, all you need is a subscription and an Android or iOS device to get in on the “game.”
The cool part about Netflix games is that there are no ads, in-app purchases, or other nasty surprises to disturb your enjoyment of the game.
It’s to be appreciated that Netflix has stepped up its efforts to add new content in recent months in its mobile gaming niche.
Creators Downwell and Her Story have contributed to this catalogue, and the streaming giant has set up in-house studios, in addition to acquiring developers such as Next Games (The Walking Dead) and Night School Studio (Oxenfree).
The company is also poised to expand beyond mobile, with not-so-subtle hints that there are plans for future games to be played directly on PC.
It remains to be seen, of course, whether Netflix will be able to plug the “holes” it has at this point, but the premises are promising.
