Monster Hunter Stories is the tale of a Rider, their Ratha, and a journey around the world to make Monstie friends and protect people from strange occurrences. The recently released Monster Hunter Stories 2 for the Switch and PC is a direct sequel set years after its events and with some of the same characters.

Meanwhile, Layton’s Mystery Journey is a new Professor Layton adventure starring his daughter, Katrielle. Layton is missing, and she’s both getting caught up solving other mysteries while trying to find out what happened to him. While the Apple Arcade page for it is live, there’s no estimated release window for it yet.

Both are part of an App Store Greats initiative for Apple Arcade. Classic games are being added to Apple Arcade for players. Another recent addition in this line is Game Dev Story.

Monster Hunter Stories is available on Apple Arcade, the Nintendo 3DS, and both Android and Apple iOS devices. Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy is available for the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Switch, and both Android and Apple iOS devices, with an Apple Arcade release on the way. Apple Arcade costs $4.99 per month and allows people to play games on Apple iOS devices and Macs.
