The firm launched the product earlier this year in March as a way of leveraging its large app store to capture the attention of gamers.

Users will be able to pay $4.99 to gain access to an all you can eat platter of big-name iOS games from developers like Konami and Capcom.

Apple also reaffirms the compromise of offering exclusive original content for Arcade customers.

It's unclear why Apple didn't announce these new titles during its keynote presentation, but these are just a handful of the hundreds of games coming to the Apple Arcade service. Apple Arcade offers 100-plus new and exclusive games, made by celebrated creators like Hironobu Sakaguchi, Ken Wong, and Will Wright. Apple Arcade games can all be played offline, and a single subscription includes access for up to six family members with Family Sharing. Apple Arcade subscribers get the full version of every game including all updates and expansions, without any ads or additional in-game purchases. Plus, it looks like most of the "exclusive" titles are only timed-exclusives rather than permanently, as numerous games we've seen planned to hit the service so far have also previously been teased for other platforms, too.

At today's event, Apple showed off three games.

Apple Arcade is a monthly subscription service similar to Xbox Game Pass.

Shantae and the Seven Sirens - From Wayforward comes the latest game in the Shantae saga, my favourite series of action platformers. If that piece of the puzzle works for everyone involved, next I'd like to see Apple address hardware limitations of its devices, especially the Mac, which has difficulty handling anything but the simplest games.
