Brilliant booze-‘em-up VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action will stagger to the PlayStation 4 in early 2019, following a PS Vita release late last year. For those out of the loop, the visual novel takes place in a dystopian future, where the drinks you mix will determine how the story progresses. It’s a superb title that captures the look of classics like Snatcher, while leveraging its sci-fi setting to tackle modern social issues.
The press release explains: “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.”
Coincidentally, we’ve been playing this recently – look for it in a future Indie Bin – and it comes highly recommended. If you simply can’t wait for next year’s console release, then give the PS Vita port a look – it’s, ahem, perfect for the portable.
