30 New Games, classic hits, more
April 2, 2021
Apple Arcade has gotten a big wave of new games today. Over 30 new titles including ones from major game developers to popular indie devs have hit the service that pushes the available titles to over 180.
30 New Titles
New games include NBA 2K21, an all-new version of The Oregon Trail from Gameloft, Fantasian from the creator of Final Fantasy, and lots of hit classics like Really Bad Chess, Monument Valley, Reigns, Simon’s Cat, Threes!, Cut the Rope, Fruit Ninja, chess, checkers, and many more.
Along with the big launch, two new Apple Arcade categories have arrived with “Timeless Classics” and “App Store Greats” with Apple highlighting everything available to play on the service is ad-free with no in-app purchases.
This marks a big move for Apple’s gaming service with a two-pronged approach. First, the big list of remastered iOS classics are sure to be a hit with both users old enough to have played the originals as well as new ones checking them out for the first time. But Apple’s gone beyond just the iOS classics to bring an all-new version of The Oregon Trail by Gameloft and even commissioned timeless classics like chess, checkers, backgammon, solitaire, sudoku, and mahjong. Then the service is also gaining modern console hits like NBA 2K21 that will have even further mass appeal.
All the new games are available now on Apple Arcade in the App Store (looks for the Arcade tab at the bottom > swipe to the very bottom and tap “See All Games”).
