Already out on Switch and PC – Hey! We just reviewed it today! – Storyteller’s distinctive blend of narrative building puzzling is coming to Netflix subscribers on 26th September, featuring new stories and characters to play with.
Set between the two films, and after the Black Out depicted in the anime short film, the need for the Replicant bounty hunters known Blade Runners has been removed, but you’re called back for one last job.
