Eagle-eyed Malaysians were quick to spot the studio's logo in a local Facebook group.

"Malaysian game company Kurechii is one of the feature (sic) developers for Apple Arcade. Congrats to Yiwei P'ng and team," the post read.

Speaking to SAYS, Kurechii founder Yiwei P'ng confirmed that it was Kurechii's logo featured onstage during the presentation

Unfortunately, P'ng could not provide any additional information at the moment due to restrictions by Apple.

He added that the team is thrilled and that they cannot wait to share the news with the world.
