For the first time, Netflix announces a mobile game and TV series from the Exploding Kittens franchise. Exploding Kittens - The Game will launch exclusively on Netflix in May while the adult animated comedy series will only premiere in 2023.
Titled Exploding Kittens, the animated series will star Lucifer's Tom Ellis, The Boys' Abraham Lim, Elementary's Lucy Liu, Toy Story 4's Ally Maki, Better Call Saul's Mark Proksch, and Woke's Sasheer Zamata. "The eternal conflict between Heaven and Hell reaches epic proportions when both God and the Devil are sent to Earth - in the bodies of chunky house cats," the official description reads.
The game follows the same original gameplay tasking players to avoid the exploding kitten. There will be 2 new exclusive cards: Radar and Flip Flop. Radar will reveal the position of the exploding kitten closest to the top of the card deck and Flip Flop will reverse the order of the cards in the deck. Future cards and game mechanics will be themed around the series so "friends and families can play with their favorite characters and bring the show to life." In addition, the game will offer single and multiplayer modes for all Netflix members without additional fees and or in-app purchases.
