Publisher Ysbryd Games has revealed that VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action will be pouring onto the Nintendo Switch eShop next month.
Described as a "booze 'em up about waifus, technology, and post-dystopia life", this one has already gone on to sell 300,000 copies on Steam. It's set in a cyberpunk future, where capitalist forces drive the corrupt government of Glitch City, a place known for both rapid advancements in technology and a disregard for the ethical quandaries of nanomachine experiments on the general public.
That's where VA-11 HALL-A comes in, a hole-in-the-wall dive bar providing solace for the lonely souls facing the brutality of daily dystopia. Here's a little PR for more info:
Bartender Jill listens to everyone’s tales while mixing drinks for strangers and regulars alike. Engage in lively conversations with a humanoid robot popstar, the editor-in-chief of a prominent magazine, a boy-crazy hacker and others to unveil the society of Glitch City as seen through the eyes of its citizens. Jill pours libations, but her patrons pour out their souls.
VA-11 HALL-A puts a shaken-not-stirred spin on point-and-click games with mixology: characters react differently depending on the drinks served and how much alcohol they’ve had. Learn more about Glitch City through the lens of a resident doing her best to maintain a somewhat ordinary life in an extraordinary metropolis.
It has also been confirmed that Limited Run Games will produce physical editions for both Nintendo Switch and PS4; Switch is also getting a special Collector’s Edition boxset. Further details on these physical editions will be announced later this year.
VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action launches on Switch on 2nd May and will be available for $14.99.
