Apple Arcade Previews Two Upcoming Games, Including 'MasterChef: Let's Cook'

Apple today previewed two new games that will be released exclusively on its subscription-based gaming service Apple Arcade.

Listed as coming soon in Apple Arcade, the new titles include "MasterChef: Let's Cook" from Tilting Point and "Layton's Mystery Journey+" from Level-5. No specific release dates have been announced for either game at this time.

masterchef lets cook
"MasterChef: Let's Cook" is an all-new game that will challenge players to prepare and serve food dishes in a fast-paced cooking competition inspired by the world-renowned TV show. Players will attempt to showcase their cooking abilities to become the number one chef as they are matched with other players around the world, according to Apple.

The game will also be updated with weekly in-app events based on specific themes and seasons such as Gourmet Burger Show and Spooky Show.

laytons mystery journey
"Layton's Mystery Journey" is an existing game on the App Store that is now becoming available to Apple Arcade subscribers. Players will join Katrielle Layton in the heart of London as she becomes embroiled in a quizzical quest to search for her missing father, Professor Hershel Layton. Kat's bicycle-based journey will have players experiencing London's famous landmarks, from the Houses of Parliament to Tower Bridge.

Nickelodeon's "SpongeBob: Patty Pursuit" has also received an update on Apple Arcade with a new competitive daily mode inside of Plankton's Chum Bucket lab.

Priced at $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, Apple Arcade provides access to a catalog of around 200 games without ads or in-app purchases across the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, with additional titles added periodically.

Honestly until they release some AAA titles I don’t see myself ever subscribing. Back when they released the iPad Pro redesign they were saying it’s as powerful as the Xbox one…. Well if it is prove it

This is exactly the type of title that is going to make gamers sway away from their XBox and PS.

Seriously. ?‍♂️?

How about using some of that 2 trillions dollars you have saved up to buy some decent gaming companies, while you're at it, buy Disney and Netflix as well, be nice to have more than 10 shows on Apple TV +

Why? So they can further fragment the market with exclusive titles? Obviously, Apple has never been interested in AAA titles and all the baggage (overpriced, ultra-violent, non-inclusive, derivative, long commitments) that they bring with them. I would love to play a few cutting edge shooters myself on Apple Arcade but it's never going to happen. But Apple Arcade is the perfect service for families and parents that want to make sure their kids aren't playing garbage all day. It might sound niche but like casual/mobile gaming, it's a huge demographic and will become one of their biggest profit centers in services if Apple can stick with it and keep adding titles regularly.

Same goes for original TV and movie content on ATV+. They are making a name for themselves and buying any large brand would completely devalue the Apple brand. Apple is playing the long game in services. No pun intended.

I'm on the bundle with ATV+, Music, and Arcade. I've never played with the Arcade. I'm sure if I had little kids or something it might be useful, but nothing interested me. Maybe if Myst gets on there...hmm...I should look and see.
