Apple Arcade is flexing its muscles in July 2023, with a strong slate of games that includes snazzy-looking Originals – including a gorgeous Hello Kitty life sim – and a number of enhanced Classics, like Slay the Spire and Stardew Valley. Add in the return of the beloved Ridiculous Fishing franchise, and you’ve got a solid month of games for subscribers.

You might still be recovering from the tidal wave of games released in May, which included the excellent Disney Spellstruck, What The Car? and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles adaptation, Splintered Fate – but it’s now time to prepare yourself for more.

Here’s everything coming to Apple Arcade in July 2023.

  • Slay the Spire+ – ‘Slay the Spire+ is a single-player deck-building game where players embark on an epic quest to conquer the ever-changing Spire. Choose a character and craft a unique deck by selecting from a vast array of cards, each offering distinct abilities and strategies. Encounter bizarre creatures, navigate treacherous paths, and discover relics of immense power as players ascend towards the pinnacle.’
  • Lego Duplo World+ – ‘Lego Duplo World+ is packed with open-ended play experiences featuring animals, buildings, exciting vehicles, and trains to inspire imagination and creativity through learning. Families can explore each scene to find out what’s in it, discover how everything works and – of course – play with it.’
