Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! I’m Maddi, and I’m very temporally confused because it’s the end April and for the second year in a row I am playing Nier: Replicant, except this year I’m playing the updated release that just came out. While the original Nier was one of my favorite gaming experiences ever, the new version is incredibly gorgeous so far, and I’m enjoying the updated visuals and soundtrack. (And if you subscribe to Sidequest’s Patreon at the Nintendo Entertainment System tier, you can check out my liveblog along with other fun content in Sidequest’s Discord server!) Speaking of new old games, here’s this week’s news.

The Great Ace Attorney Games Are Coming to PS4, Switch, and PC

This week, Capcom announced two Ace Attorney games previously only available in Japan will be coming to the U.S. for PS4, Switch, and PC. The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve were released in 2015 and 2017, respectively, and in July U.S. gamers will get to experience them as The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. The games follow Ryuonosuke Naruhodo, Phoenix Wright’s ancestor, and his courtroom adventures throughout the Meiji era.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will also introduce some new content, including Story Mode, a new feature that allows players to enjoy the story without having to play too much of the game. The game releases on July 27.

Sony Quietly Shutting Down PlayStation 3, Vita, and PSP Online Stores: Update

About a month ago, Sony announced it would shut down online stores for the PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and PSP. Many gamers were upset at the decision, as phasing out support for older consoles means many of the games for those consoles are lost to time. Last week, however, Sony announced it would continue to operate PlayStation stores for the PS3 and PS Vita. Previously, the PS3 store was set to close on July 2, and the PS Vita store was supposed to shutter on August 27. Unfortunately, the PSP store will still retire on July 2, so make sure to get any PSP games before then!

For the newer consoles, PlayStation fans can get the complete edition of Horizon Zero Dawn for free as part of Sony’s Play At Home initiative. The game is available to download until May 14.

Portal Reloaded Hits Steam

Portal 2 turned 10 last week (though whether it had cake at the party is… undetermined). In conjunction with the celebration, modder Jannis Brinkmann has released Portal Reloaded, which adds a third time-travel portal to Portal 2. The mod consists of 25 puzzles, as well as an original story and voice-acting. Portal Reloaded has been in development since 2014. It is available for free now on Steam.


Fresh off its highly successful Build-A-Bear plush line, Animal Crossing New Horizons is getting a line of apparel at Uniqlo. A series of graphic tees and accessories will hit stores (both in-person and online) beginning June 7, but until then you can browse the collection on Uniqlo’s website.

Humble Bundle announced it will make changes to charitable donations on the platform. Previously, users could donate up to 100% of a bundle’s proceeds to charity. Beginning in May, however, Humble Bundle will cap donations at 15%.

The Pokémon Fossil Museum, a recently announced traveling exhibit, will use life-size Fossil Pokémon to teach guests about all things fossils. Unfortunately, this exhibition is only taking place in Japan, but we can all enjoy these pictures of Pikachu in a paleontology outfit.

A person was arrested in Shanghai after allegedly attempting to assassinate the founders of MiHoYo HQ, the studio behind Genshin Impact.

Update: We mentioned in our March 31 post that Microsoft was hoping to acquire messaging app Discord. Since then, Discord has decided to remain independent and is no longer in talks with Microsoft.
