The Apple Arcade Featured A Lot Of Aussie And Kiwi Studios

The service will be priced $4.99 per month, and Apple is granting loyal customers a long introductory period: Anyone who buys a new Apple device will receive a whole year of free Apple TV Plus. Through Family Sharing, up to six family members can share one Apple TV+ subscription. During Apple's September 10 special event, it demonstrated three exclusive games onstage, including Frogger in Toy Town, Sayonara Wild Hearts, and Shinsekai: Into the Depths. "A curated selection of over 100 new and exclusive games from numerous most innovative game developers in the world is the flawless complement to the App Store's existing massive catalog of games", said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. The game streaming service will be limited to the Apple ecosystem - iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, or Mac - and allow subscribers to play over 100 games at launch. Numerous games are exclusive to the service, and you'll be able to play them all later this month.

Users will be able to play titles across multiple devices, enabling them to start a game on one platform, then resume their game session on another.

In similar fashion, Apple also detailed TV Plus, which is set to battle the likes of market incumbent Netflix and the looming Disney+ later this fall. The lineup of new and exclusive games coming to the service includes new Rayman, Pac-Man, Shantae, Steven Universe, and ChuChu Rocket games, as well as a new Square Enix RPG from the creators of Bravely Default. The second, by Capcom, is an underwater platformer game. Even though Apple has launched ahead of the Alphabet-owned company, it might not be enough to give an edge. It is a cloud based gaming service. Players use insects, mushrooms and plants to run through the world as quickly as possible or try over and over again to achieve the flawless score.


The new Apple Watch is also available in a wider range of materials, including aluminium, stainless steel, ceramic, and the all-new titanium finish. During the unveiling, the company didn't give specific details about the service's availability.

Apple Arcade is an interesting gamble for the iPhone maker, as it has traditionally taken a laissez-faire approach to gaming.
