black mirror bandersnatch game

Black Mirror is taking its interactive feature-length special to a whole other level. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is making headlines for its unique choose-your-own-adventure format, forcing its viewers to make choices that will send them hurtling down a different rabbit hole every time.

It’s an experience not unlike a video game, which is fitting since the premise of Bandersnatch centers around a programmer attempting to adapt a fantasy novel into a game. With Black Mirror: Bandersnatch set in the ’80s and chock-full by video game references, Netflix has upped the immersive experience by making available one of the games featured in the film — with a twist.

Harry Potter RPG Video Game

It’s a great time to be a gamer. Even if the community is rife with toxic masculinity and shady fandom, you can’t deny that the video games themselves are top-notch. And now one of the most popular intellectual properties of the past couple decades appears to finally be getting the video game it deserves.

But wait! Before you go crazy waiting for Kingdom Hearts 3 to hit shelves on January 25, 2019, the wait for any and all Kingdom Hearts content will be a tiny bit shorter thanks to a Kingdom Hearts VR experience debuting on the PlayStation VR this holiday season. It’ll be a perfect way to bide the time while we wait to play with Baymax and the heroes of Big Hero 6, who were just teased in the latest Kingdom Hearts 3 gameplay trailer.
