Apple Arcade is known for its unique games, some from indie developers that you do not get on other gaming portals. The platform is all set to get five new games soon, out of which three are launching tomorrow (Friday). The incoming games include Apple Arcade Originals like MasterChef: Let’s Cook! and App Store Greats title Layton’s Mystery Journey.

On Friday (tomorrow), Apple Arcade subscribers can download three new Arcade games - Monster Hunter Stories, Stickman Golf 3, and Super Leap Day. Arcade Originals - Super Leap Day from Nitrome Limited is a one-button platform game that gets a new level to play every single day. Players get to discover new contestants and unleash their abilities like floating up high with Puffer’s inflatable head, vacuuming up everything with Spout’s powers of suction, or travel round surfaces with the sticky powers of the mysterious creature Goop.
App Store Greats - Monster Hunter Stories by CAPCOM is an RPG where players get to enter a world filled with large monsters that roam the land, and people everywhere make a living off hunting them. However, there is a remote village of Monster Riders, who don't hunt but instead form bonds with monsters. The monsters that form kinships with Riders, known as "Monsties," possess incredible powers. By becoming a Rider, players can befriend countless Monsties and embark on new adventures, riding the Monsties as they explore a vast, exciting world to uncover monster dens, and bring back the eggs to hatch new Monsties.
App Store Greats - Super Stickman Golf 3 by Noodlecake is back on the Arcade with no ads or in-app purchases.
