The company also unveiled some of the first games coming to Arcade, including Sonic Racing from Sega, Beyond a Steel Sky from Revolution Software, LEGO Brawls from LEGO and Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm from Cornfox & Bros.

Major studios as well as indie studios are participating to make their games available exclusively through Arcade. Apple said that it is “contributing to the development costs and working closely with creators to bring the games to life”. Many of the game will be playable with a game controller and you will be able to switch between devices seamlessly.

Apple Arcade games will be great for families, respect user privacy and will not have ads or require any additional purchases. We think players of all ages are going to love Apple Arcade.”
