Apple Arcade’s September line-up includes Shovel Knight, Horizon Chase and…Tom Hanks

 

Apple has announced that a Tom Hanks-backed trivia game is among the six new games coming to Arcade in September. 

Developed by BlueLine Studios in collaboration with the famous actor, Hanx101 Trivia is a quiz game that tests players’ knowledge in solo rounds or head-to-head competition. It launches September 2.

Next up on September 9 is Horizon Chase 2 from Brazilian studio Aquiris. The arcade racer returns with its trademark retro look, online multiplayer and myriad cars to customise.

Garden Tails: Match and Grow from PlayDots is coming a week later on September 16, a match-3 with a gentle educational angle where you restore a garden to its former glory. 

Hanx101, Horizon Chase 2, Garden Tails, Shovel Knight Dig and Gris+. Apple did not provide screens for Farmside.

Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight Dig drops on Arcade September 23, a new adventure in the retro platform adventure series. It has been developed in collaboration with UK indie Nitrome. Also launching on September 23 is Team17’s Farmside, a farming game which Apple says “combines fun, farming, rich customisations and a deep quest system.”

Completing the bumper September line-up on the 30th is Gris+, the cult Devolver-published favourite that comes with lush presentation and thoughtful themes and puzzle-platforming.

There are also content updates incoming to existing Arcade titles Jetpack Joyride 2, LEGO Star Wars: Castaway, Zookeeper World, The Oregon Trail and others.
