One Piece, Stranger Things, And More Netflix Shows Come To Life In Roblox Digital Theme Park


Streaming juggernaut Netflix is teaming up with Roblox to launch its own digital theme park of sorts called Nextworld. The web-based universe will feature characters and content from original Netflix shows and movies like Stranger Things, the live-action One Piece, Cobra Kai, and Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon. The offering debuts in early access starting today.

“Once you enter Nextworld–which is your central hub in the Netflix universe–you can dive deeper into the series and films you love,” Netflix wrote. “Immersive games like Stranger Things: Escape from Hawkins High, One Piece: East Blue Brawls, and Rebel Moon: Outskirts Battles will connect you with your favorite characters in a whole new way.”

Netflix explained that characters like Dustin from Stranger Things, Luffy from One Piece, and Jimmy from Rebel Moon will serve as guardians of their respective worlds. Some of them might even guide you through your quests, with more characters to be discovered.

“As you venture through Nextworld, you can collect objects and wearables from different shows and movies to decorate your Fan Pod, your own private space that you can keep to yourself or open up to friends,” Netflix continued. “As you build more currency across challenges on Nextworld, you’ll be able to expand your pod with even more exclusive items including free limited User-Generated Content (UGC) like a Demogorgon Plushie Head or a One Piece Flag.”

The 3D interactive spaces in Nextworld feature minigames, including one inspired by the competition series Is It Cake? and one where you can test your karate skills within the Cobra Kai dojo. Users can go into a new space in Nextworld called the Streamship to attend online events like premieres and viewing parties, including the May 17 Jurassic World: Chaos Theory preview, and watch clips at the Tudum Theater.

Netflix Nextworld is currently available in early access. A full release date has not been announced.
