From Netflix we have enough examples of series rescued from traditional television and that have become enormously successful on its platform, but until now we had not seen discontinued games rescued to make them part of its mobile game offer.
That is precisely what has happened with the well-known racing game Asphalt Xtreme, from Gameloft, which stopped being available on October 1 of this year, and thanks to the fact that Netflix obtained a license of the game from Gameloft, now this title begins to be part of the company’s mobile games offer, according to what they say in TechCrunch.
And it is that from Gameloft they already give this game title for amortized, having developed between August 2015 and September 2017, closing completely to the public on September 30, 2021, going to stop being available in the application stores on last October 1, as we discussed.
Asphalt Xtreme is, together with the recent appearance of Bowling Ballers, the two new titles of games that will be able to play exclusively the subscribers of Netflix on their respective mobile devices, both on Android and iOS.
In this regard, Asphalt Xtreme is slowly starting to roll out globally, with sights set on its launch in the coming weeks in the United States, while Bowling Ballers has been available since the beginning of the month for subscribers of the service worldwide.
Bowling Ballers is a level-based bowling game belonging to Frosty Pop, developer of two other casual mobile games also available on Netflix: Shooting Hoops and Teeter Up, which until now have accompanied Stranger Things games alone.
As with the rest of Netflix mobile games, for the two new titles it will be necessary to be a subscriber to the platform and access the titles through the Netflix app, having them available no additional cost, no advertising and no in-app purchases.
This can already give us an idea of where Netflix could go in the future, so it may also be possible that we will see rescue other games that have also been relegated by developer companies.
It is already a matter of new mobile game titles arriving on the platform, although we must always bear in mind that it is a complement or an added value to the offer of movie and series content that it already offers in its increasingly extensive content catalog.
