Apple Arcade will cost $4.99 per month and launch September 19th

Apple is almost ready to launch its video game subscription service. Today, the company announced that its long-awaited 'Netflix for games' will cost $4.99 per month and be available for iOS, macOS and tvOS on September 19th.

The company also explained a little but about how the service will work. It confirmed that Apple Arcade will have its own dedicated icon and tab in the App Store, which serves as a hub for curated picks, game guides and sneak-peek trailers.

Two new titles were announced for the platform today -- a reimagined Frogger, developed by Konami, and Shinsekai: Into the Depths, an underwater adventuree by Capcom. The pair join a dizzying array of games that have already been confirmed for the platform. These include Repair (by Monument Valley team UsTwo Games), Where Cards Fall (by The Game Band and Snowman, the studio behind Alto's Adventure), The Pathless (by Abzû developer Giant Squid), Sayonara Wild Hearts (by Annapurna Interactive and Simogo, the team behind Year Walk), Fantasian, (by Mistwalker, the crew founded by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi), Sonic Racing (by Sega's Hardlight group) and Little Orpheus (by The Chinese Room, which also made Everybody's Gone to the Rapture).
