N1RV Ann-A: Trouble in False Paradise, a sequel the 2016 bartender simulator VA-11 HALL-A, has been officially revealed.
Announced by developer Sukeban Games, the cyberpunk sequel has a new trailer along with a tentative release window of 2020. N1RV Ann-A is described as “cyberpunk bartender action” and is currently only set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Switch. VA-11 HALL-A was described similarly and drew primarily from visual novels for its structure, which drink mixing as its primary gameplay mechanic.
Thankfully, Sukeban has made clear that interested newcomers to the dialogue-driven series need not worry about playing the first game. That said, Sukeban does recommend playing VA11 HALL-A for additional insight into the world’s lore.
