From The Makers Of Octopath Traveler And Bravely Default Comes Another Weirdly-Named RPG

Various Daylife is coming exclusively to Apple Arcade.


Apple's September keynote revealed a wealth of new details about the company's upcoming gaming subscription service, Apple Arcade. During the presentation, Apple announced Arcade's pricing and showed off a couple of titles coming exclusively to the service, and we learned of a few others in a press release following the event--including one from Square Enix.

The publisher is releasing a new RPG on Apple Arcade called Various Daylife. Perhaps unsurprisingly given its strange title, the game is developed by the team behind Bravely Default and Octopath Traveler. Few details were revealed about the game, but here is the synopsis from Apple's press release:

We don't know much else about the game beyond that, but the press release also includes a screenshot of the game, which shows off what appears to be a traditional turn-based battle against a pack of wolf-like monsters. You can take a look at the screenshot above.

Apple Arcade launches later this month, on September 19. The service will cost $5 per month, but you'll be able to try out one month for free. With the service, you'll get unlimited access to more than 100 exclusive games, with additional titles joining the catalog every month, including new entries in a number of beloved series such as Shantae and the Seven Sirens, ChuChu Rocket Universe, and Exit the Gungeon.
