Apple has not provided pricing for Apple Arcade yet, so there’s no word on what it is going to be priced at.

Specially Made for
In addition to Apple’s A10 Fusion chip means that the new iPod touch is optimized for gaming, including what Apple calls, “immersive augmented reality experiences.”

Apple said that the new iPod touch provides “fun and productive AR experiences across gaming, education and web browsing”, with experiences made even more immersive with the “new capabilities of shared AR, persistent AR, which is tied to a specific location, and image detection”, which makes it possible for the new iPod touch to “magically bring to life 3D objects like toys and sculptures.”
