The mobile gaming subscription service launches September 19 for a price of $4.99 per month for a family subscription. The firm launched the product earlier this year in March as a way of leveraging its large app store to capture the attention of gamers. The Cupertino giant is giving users access to over 100 game titles across 150+ countries across the globe. There's a new Frogger game from Konami and Q-Games, as well as a new Capcom title called Shinsekai: Into the Depths. Games like ChuChu Rocket Universe from Sega, Pac-Man Party Royale from Bandai Namco, and Ubisoft's Rayman Mini offer new spins on classic properties.

The slide also didn't include Aussie games published under another banner, like Annapurna, which is publishing The Artful Escape and Florence from Mountains onto the new Apple service. Through Family Sharing, up to six family members can share one Apple TV+ subscription.

If you've been waiting for an Apple Arcade sub to get your game on, you'll have just 9 days to go.

Apple also used the event to show off the trailer for "See", a Sci-Fi series starring Jason Momoa.
