Following the major update for Dead Cells on iOS and Android a few days ago, Playdigious has brought Dead Cells+ () to Apple Arcade. As an App Store Great, Dead Cells+ includes all prior paid DLC and content updates. It also has exclusive mobile leaderboards. If you’re curious about Dead Cells on iOS, read my review of it here and also my interview with Playdigious here. You can Dead Cells+ on Apple Arcade here. Hopefully updates arrive simultaneously on iOS, Android, and Apple Arcade going forward. Despite already owning this on iOS, it is a great get for Apple Arcade.
