The upcoming video game The Last Kids on Earth and the Staff of Doom has announced that it will officially release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on June 4th. As we noted when it was first announced last year, the video game features an all-new story with up to four-player couch and online co-op. Unfortunately, the online co-op feature has been delayed from launch, so folks will have to settle for playing with friends in real life until some later date.
In the game, players take on the roles of franchise heroes Jack, Quint, June, and Dirk as they search for the missing pieces of the eponymous Staff of Doom and fight Malondre, Queen of the Slime Monsters. Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, the voice cast from the Netflix series reprises their roles in the game, including Nick Wolfhard (Jack), Montse Hernandez (June), Garland Whitt (Quint), and Charles Demers (Dirk). You can check out the new trailer for the video game adaptation below:
