Publisher Ysbryd Games and developer Sukeban Games have announced that VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action will launch in the West on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on May 2.
The game will be available digitally for $14.99 on both platforms. They will also be partnering up once again with Limited Run Games to release a physical standard edition on both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch and a collector’s edition on the Nintendo Switch. Those will go up for sale sometime later in 2019.
VA-11 Hall-A originally launched on the PC in June 2016 and then released on the PlayStation Vita in November 2017. Limited Run Games already released a limited physical copy of the Vita version.
In a cyberpunk future, 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. Enter VA-11 HALL-A: a hole-in-the-wall dive bar providing solace for lonely souls facing the brutality of daily dystopia.
VA-11 HALL-A puts a shaken-not-stirred spin on point-and-click games with mixology: clients react differently depending on the drinks served and how much alcohol they’ve had. 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. An infectious synthwave soundtrack and a dark pixelated anime art style frame the gloomy but laidback experience.
