Apple Arcade is expanding in March 2023, with a range of excellent games joining the subscription service. Chief amongst these is Kimono Cats from HumaNature Studios, an adorable social game where players journey through a colourful Japanese matsuri festival playing mini-games and discovering new friends and secrets along the road.
The digital version of Cluedo is also arriving on Apple Arcade this month – and it’s a great time for those who love a good mystery. Like the tabletop edition, this game tasks you with solving a murder by wandering a strange mansion, gathering clues.

Here’s the full list of games coming to Apple Arcade in March 2023, per Apple:
- Kimono Cats (Arriving 3 March) – ‘Kimono Cats is a charming and original social mobile game that blends skill, creativity, and friendly social gifting and competition. Step into the paws of a cat and walk through a Japanese “matsuri” festival. Play a variety of fun mini-games to earn coins and to progress along the road to new areas that have new things to discover. Coins can be used to purchase houses, shops, and decorative objects to design and build unique villages. Players can also visit other players’ villages to leave gifts, messages, and stamps in their guest books.’
- Osmos+ (Arriving 17 March) – ‘Osmos+ is part ambient, cosmic simulator, and part Darwinistic game of survival.
