Is Netflix making a gaming service?
Netflix’s gaming efforts continuously ramp up as it hosts over 30 mobile games following its launch in November 2021, but what’s coming next? Here are all the upcoming games coming soon to Netflix. This is an ongoing live preview, so keep it bookmarked, as we’ll keep it updated over time. Once a game releases, we’ll remove it from this list.
Want to see the games Netflix already has? We’ve got a separate list of all the released Netflix mobile games here, including Stranger Things 3, Lucky Luna, Into the Breach, Exploding Kittens, and a few dozen more.
Alongside the news that Netflix is developing a live-action series based on its Assassin’s Creed property, Ubisoft announced at forwarding that they’re also working on a new mobile experience. Per their press release, “For players on the go, Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade will be a AAA RPG action-adventure mobile game set in ancient China.”
Netflix quickly ran through its video game offerings during Tudum 2022, which might have been easy to miss since they were sandwiched between all the film and TV trailers. Here are all the video games that Netflix briefly showed during its Tudum event.

Dragon Age: Absolution: That’s right! The hit role-playing video game is being adapted as an animated series on Netflix, and we’ve got the new teaser and the poster to prove it.
Netflix has dropped its Year-End-Recap on YouTube, revealing some juicy details regarding some excellent game releases. As you’d expect, the video covers the many games that came to the platform in 2022, from Spiritfarer to Cats & Soup. All that’s fine and good, but the next bit in the video drew my attention. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is coming to Netflix Games in 2023, an incredibly excellent beat them up that’s received nothing but glowing reviews. But that’s not all; there are two surprise releases today.
The first is Kentucky Route Zero, a favorite around these parts that we knew was coming but is finally here. The second game is Twelve Minutes, a story-rich interactive thriller voiced by big names like James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley, and Willem Dafoe.
You can check out Netflix Games’ Year-End-Recap directly above. It’s worth a watch, showcasing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge about halfway through. This is a reasonably popular beat them up developed by Tribute Games, the same people behind Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, another highly-regarded beat them up. While we don’t yet have a date beyond 2023, we now know the game is coming, which is good news for 2D brawler fans.
Kentucky Route Zero
Titles coming in the future are all well and good. Still, people need the stuff to play immediately, which is why I was excited to see that Kentucky Route Zero is finally available on Android through Netflix Games. This atmospheric point-and-click offers tons of style with an exciting twist. While you’ll want to experience this for yourself, if you already have a Netflix subscription, you can play now.

So far, performance appears to be pretty good, holding a stable 30FPS on my RedMagic 7. Sadly there does not appear to be any controller support or at least my SteelSeries Stratus+ doesn’t work with the game over Bluetooth. At the very least, the touchscreen controls are on point. Also, this game should last a while; most playthroughs are 8-9 hours long.
Kentucky Route Zero isn’t the only game launched today on Netflix Games; we also have Twelve Minutes. This is a top-down interactive thriller featuring a few famous stars for voice work. You’re stuck in a twelve-minute time loop, and so you’ll have to hunt for clues within this loop to escape. The main story should last around four hours, and this is a well-liked game, so it’s four hours worth experiencing. Sadly there’s no Bluetooth controller support here either; having tested my SteelSeries Stratus+, I was ultimately forced to use the touchscreen. Thankfully the touchscreen controls work well.

All in all, not a bad day for Netflix Games. We have two new titles to play through that are worth experiencing, but we also have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge coming sometime in the new year. And this is hot off the heels of some excellent releases in the last three months, like Reigns: Three Kingdoms and Spiritfarer. Netflix is serious about offering an incredible catalog of games on Android, so here’s hoping we see even more growth in the next year once Shredder’s Revenge hits the Play Store.
