Apple today announced the launch of its Apple Arcade service, and it’ll be coming on September 19th for $4.99 with the customary one-month free trial. The firm launched the product earlier this year in March as a way of leveraging its large app store to capture the attention of gamers.

Users will be able to pay $4.99 to gain access to an all you can eat platter of big-name iOS games from developers like Konami and Capcom. Apple demoed new games like a modern iteration of Frogger and the upcoming Sayonara Wild Hearts at its iPhone event today.

“The App Store is the world’s biggest and most successful game platform. Now we are going to take games even further with Apple Arcade, the first game subscription service for mobile, desktop and the living room,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing in March. “We are working with some of the most innovative game developers in the world to create over 100 new and exclusive games to play across iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. Apple Arcade games will be great for families, respect user privacy and will not have ads or require any additional purchases. We think players of all ages are going to love Apple Arcade.”

If you’ve been waiting for an Apple Arcade sub to get your game on, you’ll have just 9 days to go.
