Today was a big day for Nintendo fans as 3 classic titles have landed on the Apple App Store. Besides the occasional licensed Pokémon game, Nintendo for years ignored other mobile platforms like iOS and Android until it started creating its own touchscreen titles in 2016.

Apple said that AirPower would arrive in 2018. While the clock may be ticking, there are still a few months for the company to deliver.

The sequel/prequel to the 2015 console/PC game Life is Strange is now available on the Apple App Store. Life is Strange: Before the Storm is choice-based narrative like the popular titles from Telltale Games. The original 3 episodes were released to for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2017. The game follows the life of sixteen-year-old Chloe Price from a third-person view. It takes place three years before Life Is Strange, and includes the ability to "Backtalk" instead of being able to time travel, like in the original.
