A new 3D remaster of Ridiculous Fishing is the headline addition to Apple Arcade next month.
Ridiculous Fishing EX, which is said to have been rebuilt from scratch by the original development team, takes the 2013 mobile game and gives it a 3D makeover exclusively for Apple‘s game subscription service.
As in the original version, the game will see players trying to hook fish, before flinging them up out of the water, then shooting them out of the sky to earn cash.
Also coming to Apple Arcade in July is Hello Kitty Island Adventure, a new life sim from Colorado-based studio Sunblink.
It’ll be joined by three more ‘+’ versions of existing highly rated App Store games. These versions remove any monetisation present in the standard App Store versions of each game, be that an up-front price, in-game purchases or ads.
The full list of games due for release on Apple Arcade in July is as follows (Apple’s descriptions provided):
