This week in Apple Arcade January 12: Nickelodeon All-Star…Tennis?

Nickelodeon fans have a new, less cheeky way to play with their favorite characters as the weekly Apple Arcade update sees the release of Nickelodeon Extreme Tennis.

The game – first announced via a Tweet in December – features many favorites from Nickelodeon history, from Spongebob to Rocko to Garfield, as they take to the field in single and multiplayer action. The courts are located in many famous Nickelodeon locations, including Bikini Bottom and the New York City rooftops.

Major updates to Apple Arcade games include a music player for the critically acclaimed JRPG Fantasian – meaning you can play the latest Nobuo Uematsu soundtrack whenever you want – and the opening of the LEGO Brawls vault, so all previous seasons and themes now accessible instantly.

Other recent Apple Arcade releases include Disney Melee Mania, the 3v3 arena brawler featuring Disnry characters each with unique abilities, and LEGO Star Wars: Castaways, a planet exploration game set in the popular LEGO Star Wars universe.

The full list of this week’s Apple Arcade and App Store updates is below.
