Fantasian, Lumen and Wonderbox: Every game we can’t wait to play on Apple Arcade – CNET

Apple Arcade has a game for almost everyone.

Apple has amassed nearly 150 games on its $5-per-month gaming service, Apple Arcade. All the titles in Apple Arcade's catalog are available to play acrossthe iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV, but we're still waiting on some titles that were teased during launch in 2019.

Almost every week Apple Arcade releases and announces new games, as well as updates older titles, so subscribers always have something new to check out.

Here's every game we're still waiting to arrive on Apple Arcade.

The Artful Escape tells the story of teenage guitar prodigy Francis Vendetti. On the night of his first performance, Francis finds himself on a psychedelic quest of self discovery. Along the way, he battles dead folk legends and, at times, his own imagination.

The Artful Escape was first announced at E3 2017 and was listed in the Apple Arcade lineup last year. The X019 trailer promises a colorful, neon, musical side-scroller.

Details have been thin on the ground about Enter the Construct, except that it was expected to be available at Apple Arcade's launch. At that time, the images and videos showed the game as a first-person sci-fi shooter. Since then, there has been little to no information about Enter the Construct, so it's possible it's taken on a new name or has been canceled. Directive Games didn't respond to a request for comment, but we'll update if we hear anything.


Fantasian's creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, a mastermind behind multiple RPGs including Final Fantasy, postsupdates about the upcoming JRPG game fairly regularly on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. If you're excited about Fantasian, you can scroll through Sakaguchi's social media and get a look at the game's concept art and its handcrafted dioramasas they're being built. Developer Mistwalker has posted designs of New Town En, Magitech Factory in Machine City, Secret Base and the Water City of Vence from the game.

Sakaguchi recently tweeted new screenshots saying thatthe game will be out soon. Game siteKotaku speculates that this means we could see the game this year.
