If you like drinking and conversing with others down at your local, N1RV ANN-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action might be worth keeping your eyes on. Sukeban Games - the developers of the acclaimed booze 'em up VA-11 HALL-A - have announced a sequel in collaboration with Ysbryd Games. The team revealed the game will be released on multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch by 2020.

Below is a description from the developer and PR:

Like VA-11 HALL-A, players will control a bartender. Sam works at N1RV ANN-A, Saint Alicia’s most iconic and luxurious bar. Learn about Sam’s patrons and the cyberpunk world of N1RV ANN-A by mixing up drinks and selecting ingredients. Different drinks will once again lead to different branches in the narrative. Replay missions to improve scores, explore different dialogue options and unlock secret missions.

Escape fromVA11 HALL-A’s Glitch City to Saint Alicia, an idyllic paradise with an upscale bar called N1RV ANN-A. But opulence and extravagance are merely smokescreens: the artificial island hides a seedy underbelly. Its dystopian economy touches all aspects of life as bar patrons contend with mafia extortion, trafficking and other sordid crimes. For bartender Sam, trouble hits close to home. Her relationship with her partner Leon, who moonlights as a Yakuza, is on the rocks, and she works hard to care for their 8-year-old son, Tony.

In N1RV ANN-A’s cyberpunk world, people stop at nothing to live luxuriously, even when it means augmenting their bodies to conform to extreme fads. Become acquainted with customers who frequent the bar, including erotic comic creator Parka and Sam’s gun-toting boss Iris, and serve up delicious real-life recipes with ingredients like vodka and tropical juices. Drink orders are as volatile as emotions in N1RV ANN-A – experiment with different drinks and see what happens!

Explore various story outcomes based on which drinks are served and whose lives are changed. Players can replay missions to improve their scores, explore branching dialogue options and unlock secret missions. Earn better tips by relating to customers through their drinks, and spend hard-earned cash on bills, decorations and Sam’s son, Tony. Will Sam be able to move on and put misdeeds behind her as she embarks on this new cyberpunk bartending adventure?

The original visual-novel inspired game about "waifus, technology and post-dystopia life" was first released on PC in 2016 and has since sold more than 200,000 copies. It's currently scheduled to be released on the Nintendo Switch in Q1 2019. Below is the console announcement trailer for the original title:
