Disney Dreamlight Valley Arcade Edition, Football Manager 2024 Touch, Sonic Dream Team and Puzzle & Dragons Story are among the eight games on the way to Apple Arcade in November and December. They’ll join the 200+ already on the service.

In addition, more than 50 of the already available games will get content updates.

Apple Arcade catalog keeps growing

“We’ve added nearly 60 new games to Apple Arcade this year, and subscribers and their families have been loving the breadth and depth of the catalog with hits like Hello Kitty Island Adventure, NBA 2K24 Arcade Edition, TMNT Splintered Fate, Cypher 007, and so many others,” said Alex Rofman, senior director of Apple Arcade, in a statement.

And a new game will be added to the service each week in November. The highlight will undoubtedly be Football Manager 2024 Touch (Nov. 6), which lets players create a soccer club dynasty. The other November additions will be classic games brought into Apple Arcade, such as Knotwords+ (November 3) and Downwell+ (Nov. 17).

And there are four more games all launching on December 5. That includes Disney Dreamlight Valley Arcade Edition, Sonic Dream Team and Puzzle & Dragons Story.

All eight of the upcoming games will be playable on iPhone and iPad, and most are also coming to Mac and Apple TV.

Bring on new game content

Titles already in Apple Arcade are getting new features, too. That includes into Hello Kitty Island Adventure, with the Give & Gather Celebration beginning on November 17.

And on November 23, the recently launched NBA 2K24 Arcade Edition will get its first update. City Edition uniforms will be added, and players will be able to hit the court with eight more Greatest Players athletes, including “The Answer” himself, Allen Iverson.

Additional games getting new content updates before the end of the year include Sneaky Sasquatch, Cut the Rope 3, Samba de Amigo: Party-To-Go, Japanese Rural Life Adventure and The Oregon Trail, among others.

Access to all these Apple Arcade games — new and old — comes with a $6.99-per-month subscription. And one subscription works for up to six family members. There are never hidden costs in the games — in-app purchases are forbidden.
