VA-11 HALL-A Playstation Vita Port Is Finally Coming

The hit indie visual novel VA-11 HALL-A is getting a port to the PSVita, and will be shown off at Bitsummit 2017 in Kyoto, Japan.

VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Actionthe surprise sleeper hit visual novel from 2016 developed by Sukeban Games, has finally received confirmation for its promised port to the PlayStation Vita.

The Vita Version of the game will be shown off at this year's Bitsummit convention, which is a yearly independent gaming convention held in Kyoto, Japan. 

The publisher of the port, Wolfgame, has shown off a bit of the Vita version's gameplay on their Twitter, which you can view below:

For any readers who may have missed out on VA-11 HALL-A, it is a visual novel set in a dystopian cyberpunk future where the authoritarian government is always watching, the economy is in shambles, and many people seek escape from their depressing everyday lives at the bottom of a glass.

The player takes on the role of Jill, a bartender at the eponymous VA-11 HALL-A bar in a small corner of Glitch City, and must correctly mix and serve drinks while learning about the outside world through the many different and interesting people who wander in looking for a buzz.

The game is mostly dialogue and reading, interspersed every few minutes with the task of mixing a drink -- and the dialogue and story-line can vary based on how you mix each drink. 

  A typical dialogue exchange in VA-11 HALL-A.

Apparently, Wolfgame has also had the game rated by the Brazilian ratings board for a number of other gaming platforms -- but all other platforms aside from the Vita are only possibilities for the future, and not absolute certainties.

VA-11 HALL-A is currently available on Steam and, with a port for the iPad supposedly in the works as well.


I'm just your average basement-dwelling eclectic and eccentric video gamer who does his best to make a point, share experiences, and talk to people without swallowing his own tongue. I'm mostly into Platformers and RPG's, but I'll try pretty much anything once, and I'm also trying to find something different and interesting to play, and then share with as many people as I can. I can also beat the entire first world in Super Meat Boy while wearing oven mitts.
