We’re about to wrap up in May and Apple was kind enough to give us information about what’s coming to its premium gaming service next month. Despite that there If there aren’t as many titles as May brought us, there’s a chance more games will be announced during the month.
Three new Arcade Originals and one App Store Great title will be added to Apple Arcade in June. They seem to be spread out throughout the month to keep us occupied. More importantly, they’re as varied as they can be, so if you’re into puzzling, cooking, or shooters, you’ll probably want to read on.
The first Arcade Originals to join Apple Arcade will be released on June 3rd and it’s called Frogger and the Rumbling Ruins† The name probably doesn’t make it clear, but this is a three-dimensional puzzle game in which players must guide the protagonist, Fogger, through 100 levels of traps and enemies. If that doesn’t help that much, maybe the fact that this is the sequel to the hit Apple Arcade game Frogger in Toy Town will paint a better picture.
Next in line is a very popular Japanese video game franchise called Cooking Mom: Kitchen† As the name suggests, this is a game where you have to unlock recipes and cook them to perfection. The good news is that Cooking Mama: Cuisine has a twist that should set it apart from other games of the same genre.
Instead of selecting a recipe, players must first choose the ingredients, find a combination that goes together, and then start cooking. However, it is worth noting that the only way to find out what will be served with the selected ingredients is to cook it. Cooking Mama: Cuisine is scheduled for release on Apple Arcade on June 17.
The third and final title from Arcade Originals, air shifter, is expected to arrive on June 24. This is an endless shooter that promises fun and easy touchscreen swipe-shooting gameplay mechanics and artfully crafted stages, so if you’re into the genre, you should probably check this one out. It’s worth adding that this is the creation of Yu Suzuki, the mastermind behind the Shenmue series, a very popular JRPG (Japanese role-playing game).
Finally, Jigsaw puzzle+, the new and improved version of Jigsaw Puzzle is coming to Apple Arcade on June 10. Many of you may recognize the name of the game with one of the largest collections of jigsaw puzzles from iconic brands such as Hasbro, Disney and many more. For puzzle collectors, this is definitely a gold mine.
