Finally, cyberpunk bartender action is coming to Nintendo Switch!

The genre you never knew you wanted will hit the Switch on May 2nd when Ysbryd Games and developer Sukeban Games release VA-11 HALL-A. The “booze em’up about waifus, technology, and post-dystopia life” has sold more than 300,000 copies on Steam.

VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action is set in a cyberpunk future where a corporate controlled government (hey!) forces unethical nanomachine experiments on its citizens in order to rapidly advance technology. Unlike most games in which a hero would arise and—with the help of various characters he meets along the way—battle to free the citizens from their oppressors, the less idealistic but more practical point of VA-11 HALL-A is just to help the citizens drown their sorrows in alcohol.

Bartender Jill listens to everyone’s tales while mixing drinks for strangers and regulars alike. Engage in lively conversations with a humanoid robot pop star, 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.

Of course, alcohol isn’t the only way to distract yourself from what society has become.

Enhance the atmosphere of this futuristic experience by curating different electronic playlists on the jukebox to listen throughout the night. Infectious synthpop, ambient electronic music and a dark pixelated anime art style frame the gloomy but laid back experience.

VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action will be available digitally for $14.99 on May 2nd. A physical and collector’s edition is also on the way from Limited Run, but we won’t know more about that until later this year.
