More details about these games can be found on the Apple Newsroom, and the App Store descriptions for each title are pasted in part below.

Outlanders 2:

Welcome back to the Outlands! A new, courageous generation of outlanders is ready to redefine life on the Outlands, with new approaches to building and surviving, uncharted heights and horizons, and an ecosystem more vibrant than ever before.

Outlanders 2 is the latest installment of the charming town-builder that captivated players with its imaginative levels, easy-to-understand but hard-to-master gameplay, and offbeat humor.

Punch Kick Duck+:

Fighting is all about timing. Just ask any duck.

The right move + right time = swift victory.

All you need to do is PUNCH KICK DUCK!

The cruel Baron Tigrisso has imprisoned you in his tower. Fight hordes of the Baron's hench-critters as you battle up the tower to confront your captor.

Zen Koi Pro+:

Collect & nurture colorful koi fish as they grow & transform into dragons in this calming, offline game. Find your zen & unwind with enchanting music & beautiful visuals.

Accessible through the App Store, Apple Arcade is a subscription-based service that provides access to hundreds of games across the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and Vision Pro, all free of ads and in-app purchases. The service received its first price increase last year, with U.S. pricing rising from $4.99 to $6.99 per month.

Super enjoying Apple Arcade. The graphics are amazing, the games are AAA quality if not better, and it comes in a single package subscription.

Apple Arcade is a disease. No way to stop the emails or notifications that invite me to enjoy three months for free…. I wish Apple would get the clue and realize that some customers are purpose driven with their apps and don’t play games or install random crap.

Here is a suggestion apple:
Grab a few macos classics (like maybe civilization VI that is also in the mac app store or perhaps a few classic RPGs like Baulder's Gate I/II) and offer it free for a limited time on apple arcade.

This would make your service look better and boost some gaming exposure on your mac platform.

Looking forward to Outlanders 2 — the first one was such a good little strategy game, with tons of charm and attention to detail. Sounds like the sequel will be more of the same, but better.
