16 May, 2018
After serving up cyborg patrons on computer platforms and the PS Vita, VA-11 HALL-A is headed to the PS4 and Switch. It won’t be out any time soon, though.
Get that adelhyde ready lass, you’ve got a cyborg patron a-coming. VA-11 HALL-A is on its way to the PS4 and Switch, but only in the first quarter of 2019. There isn’t much information right now, but you can check out the trailer below:
Here’s what the game is about:
VA-11 HALL-A puts a twist on traditional point and click games with the story branching based on bartending decisions. Chat with customers and serve them life-changing drinks as Jill, a bartender at a dive bar frequented by average citizens in a cyberpunk future ruled by megacorporations.
With 24 drinks to concoct, there is no one correct drink to serve in any given situation, as characters are impacted by whatever cocktail they are poured. Every character that comes through has a story to tell which reveals more about both their lives and the futuristic Glitch City, run by the mysterious Zaibatsu Corp.
The game was developed in Caracas, Venezuela at Sukeban Games. Meanwhile, Ysbyrd Games continues to be the publisher for the upcoming console release.
VA-11 HALL-A originally released on PC, Mac, and Linux in 2016. It also came out on PS Vita last year. The game has a score of 83 on OpenCritic, and a score of 77 on MetaCritic. According to the publisher, it sold 200,000 copies on Steam, where it has received 97 percent positive user reviews.
While you wait for some cyberpunk bartending action, you might want to check out another adventure game on the Switch, Firewatch. Also check out Moonlighter, in which you manage a shop (and also slay some monsters).
