Apple Arcade weekly update: NBA 2K22 Arcade Edition, Tiny Wings, Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls and more

There's plenty of news for fans of Apple Arcade this week. We've learned about a bunch of new games that will be arriving on the service soon, alongside updates to three titles that are already available.

Coming soon

NBA 2K22 Arcade Edition

The latest title in the popular NBA 2K series is heading for Apple Arcade. Basketball fans can enjoy playing with updated 2022 rosters in Quick Match, face off against their pals in Online Multiplayer, and enjoy some three-on-three games in Blacktop mode.

Alternatively, if players back their coaching chops, they can become the GM and Head Coach in Association mode. Here they'll manage their team, scout players, make trades and handle their team's finances. Meanwhile, players can embark on their own NBA career in MyCAREER mode after choosing their appearance, position and jersey number. 

Tiny Wings

Tiny Wings by Andreas Illiger is an arcade title centred around a small bird who dreams of flying. Unfortunately, they're not capable of sustained flight, but that doesn't mean they can't enjoy a little soaring. The world is filled with hills that can be used as jump slopes to launch the bird through the sky, if only for a moment.

Launching Friday

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls

Fans of Konami's side-scrolling Metroidvania series are undoubtedly looking forward to Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls. It will feature character designs and music from Ayami Kojima and Michiru Yamane in an adventure that sees players hacking, slashing and whipping their way through numerous enemies. Some of the playable characters will include Alucard, Simon Belmont, Charlotte, Shanoa and Maria.

Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure

Imangi Studios' match-three puzzler will task players with beating these challenges to uncover the mysteries of an ancient temple. As they progress, they will unlock special pieces that will allow them to become Temple Champion. They'll also be able to send out runners in pursuit of treasure.


Star Trek: Legends

The latest update in Tilting Point's Star Trek: Legends sees the introduction of new characters, including Elim Garak and Shinzon.

SongPop Party

Meanwhile, SongPop Party has added a new character, bonus category, party invites, daily bonuses and a new 50's decade with over 2000 songs.
