Earlier today we got more details on Apple Arcade, the upcoming game subscription service from Apple. We even got to learn about some of the games they'll be showing off. However, we now got detail on even more games that will be coming to the service.

Several big developers have already pledged titles to the project. A notable one is Various Daylight, a new RPG by the same team that made Octopath Traveler and Bravely Default, where you'll be exploring a new island while trying to live a fulfilling life. Ubisoft will be bringing Rayman Mini, which will have Rayman shrink down to the size of an ant and have to quickly travel through worlds. Gaming legend Pac-Man is also in on the service, with Bandai Namco announcing Pac-Man Party Royale, which has four different Pac-Men competing to be the last Pac standing. Sega is bringing back their classic ChuChu Rocket! with the all new ChuChu Rocket! Universe.

 

While there are plenty of big developers and publishers on the platform, there's plenty of mid-sized and smaller ones as well. Devolver has announced Exit the Gungeon, a version of their classic roguelite where your goal is to escape the collapsing dungeon rather than dive into it. Longtime mobile game developer Gameloft announced Ballistic Baseball, an arcadey baseball game that is advertised as a "1v1" multiplayer game that captures the battle between the pitcher and the batter. Fans of Steven Universe will be happy to know a third RPG has been announced, with Steven Universe: Unleash the Light joining the other two Steven Universe RPGs. This is just a small taste of what will be on the service, with plenty more games to come.

These join the earlier announced Frogger in Toy Town from Q-Games and Konami as titles coming to the line-up, some of them for launch.

 

Apple Arcade launches on September 19th for iOS devices at a price of $4.99 a month.
