The Apple Vision Pro is gearing up for its February 2 launch, and it’s bringing along three captivating “spatial games” – Game Room, Super Fruit Ninja, and the Apple Arcade favorite, What the Golf? Although Apple has been somewhat reserved about the specifics of these games, the recent launch announcement unveils a surprising twist in the company’s gaming strategy for its new headset.
Previously, it seemed the headset would mainly serve as a gateway to existing Apple Arcade games and apps, showcased on a flat screen within the device.
However, the latest revelation indicates that Apple is taking a proactive approach by creating games specifically designed to leverage the unique capabilities of the Apple Vision Pro.
Details about the three games are currently limited, with Apple briefly mentioning them as upcoming titles.
According to the tech giant, these games will harness the robust capabilities of the Apple Vision Pro, promising to transform the player’s surroundings and deliver a distinctive and immersive gaming experience.
Of the trio, Game Room remains shrouded in mystery, as Apple has chosen to keep details under wraps. Super Fruit Ninja seems straightforward, likely offering a variation of the well-known mobile game Fruit Ninja.
Notably, the Vision Pro will introduce a new version of What the Golf?, a humorous sports game recognized as one of Apple Arcade’s standout offerings. However, it’s unclear whether this version is an entirely fresh iteration or an additional mode within the existing app.
Apple has yet to unveil how Vision Pro users will access these games. Digital Trends has sought clarification on whether these games will require an Apple Arcade subscription or be available as standalone apps.
Additionally, inquiries have been made about the release dates for each of these eagerly anticipated games.
