In this week, NBA 2K22 Arcade Edition was the big new release and it actually arrived a few days ago instead of following the usual Thursday / Friday release pattern. Read more about it here. Aside from this new version, Apple Arcade had a lot of great games including some surprising ones that are getting big updates today. I say surprising because some of these games haven’t been updated in a year. The first big update is Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls () from Konami, which comes in the Halloween mood with new skins, a new mode and limited-time login bonuses. You can now collect special seasonal mission coins to unlock new weapons, items or skins. This update also lets you skip event scenes, balance adjustments, new actions for Judge Belmont, and more. You can get Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls on Apple Arcade here. Read our interview with the director of Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls Here. Check out the launch trailer below:
The next big update is that of Noodlecake Slash Quest!. Slash Quest! Season 3 is now live with 10 new challenges, six new sporty outfits and more. This is the first Slash Quest! update in a couple of months. If you haven’t tried it yet, Slash Quest! is worth a look. Devolver Digitals Cricket through the ages gets its first update in about a year with Ultra Cricket Mode, which lets you create hundreds of characters and game modes. This update also adds new music, unique game modes like Wicket Dash, Giants, Trophy Wrestling, and more.
