Occasionally, a courtroom drama is just what the doctor ordered.

The Ace Attorney Trilogy hits almost every major platform in Australia this week (bar PS4), offering 14 episodes of Phoenix Wright digging through garages, fingerpointing and generally saving the day. It’s the entirety of the first three games, which should be a nice companion for the train.

The Switch also wins this week with ports of Cook, Serve, Delicious 2, an updated version of the FTL-like Out There (complete with new endings) and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. World of Warships fans will enjoy the new Legends expansion this week on PC and PS4, with Xbox users arriving next week.

Here’s what you can look forward to over the next 7 days:

  • Ace Attorney Trilogy (PC, XBO, Switch)
  • Out There: The Alliance (Switch)
  • World of Warships: Legends (PS4) **
  • Cook, Serve, Delicious 2! (PS4, XBO, Switch)
  • Switch ‘n’ Shoot (Switch)
  • Shadowgate (XBO, Switch)
  • Back to Bed (Switch)
  • The Mystery of Woolley Mountain (Switch)
  • Reigns: Game of Thrones (Switch)
  • War Theatre (Switch)
  • Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (Switch)
  • The Demon Crystal (Switch)
  • Xenon Racer (Switch)
  • Zanki Zero: Last Beginning (PC, PS4)
  • Weedcraft Inc (PC)
  • Dangerous Driving (PS4, XBO)
  • Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain (PS4)

Note: World of Warships Legends launches fully on the 16th, if you don’t want to pay for early access. It’s launching on Xbox on the 16th as well, but not PC (apologies for the error).

Onto the trailers! Let’s remind ourselves how silly Earth Defense Force can be.

Decent mix of indies to work with this week. Out There and Weedcraft should be fun, and I’m curious to see how Hellblade handles on the Switch just from a technical level. See anything that takes your fancy?


  • I like that the videos are in these.
    Weedcraft looks a lot more interesting than I was expecting.

    Also, MarZ: Tactical Base Defense came out over the weekend and has been very enjoyable, along with Photographs, a little earlier.

    Also, Supraland came out Friday, looks ADORABLE, is a Metroidvania which details a pie-chart of its ratios for puzzle:exploration:fighting on its store page, and has a demo, which I am totally going to load tonight.

  • been playing this for the past week (AA Trilogy); its amazing playing this in HD again, but on the same token it really is a game where you just want to spread out on a couch, with a handheld…

    • Gotta admit, I’ll be buying this for Switch.

      Man I wish more games would come with cross progression so I could switch between PC, Xbox and Switch.

      • its 100% possible, but i guess it means things like patching would need to be simultaneously maintained accross all platforms, and the onus would be on the developer to host cloud storage for save content, and develop their own api. wouldnt expect many devs to be too keen on it though unfortunately.
