Apple Arcade Adds NBA 2K23, Includes New Jetpack Joyride 2 Levels

NBA 2K23 Arcade Edition joins Apple Arcade on Tuesday, bringing the ability to take The Greatest mode to the streets or the streetcar.

 Faceoff against top NBA talent, past and present, including Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, Devin Booker and Kevin Durant. And for those who are a fan of NBA 2K23 cover athlete Devin Booker’s one-of-a-kind Kobe 4 Protro kicks in “Suns’ Purple,” you can get them on the main menu for a short time! 

 If you are looking for something a little more relaxed and far less competitive, The Voxel Agents’ delightful puzzle game, The Gardens Between+, is live today.

 Best friends Arina and Frendt fall into a series of vibrant, dreamlike island gardens peppered with everyday objects from their childhood. Together they embark on an emotional journey that examines the significance of their friendship, the memories they’ve built, what must be let go, and what should never be left behind. Manipulate time to solve puzzles and reach the apex of each isle. Follow the duo as they unpack and explore their significant moments spent together, lighting up constellations and illuminating threads of a bittersweet narrative.

 Apple Arcade fan favourite Jetpack Joyride 2 has received an update that adds new Story Levels (Queen V sectors 6-10), a new Hero skin (Haunted Skeleton), an all-new Jetpack skin (Cola), as well as a new Avatar (Queen V) and Leaderboards.
