Lengthy update provides details on delay and reduced promotional focus for sequel
Sukeban Games, developer of surprise hit bartending simulator/visual novel tribute VA-11 Hall-A has announced in a lengthy update that the long-planned sequel N1RV Ann-A has been delayed from its originally planned 2020 release to a more nebulous timeframe of “when it’s done.”
In the update, the main developer Fernando Damas goes on to detail specific reasons for the delay, citing a desire to formalize the development process in a structured manner compared to VA-11 Hall-A, a lack of delegation in the later stages of the development process hindering overall progress, creative differences in the narrative direction of the new game, and other projects being developed in parallel are also cited for the lack of progress in the highly anticipated sequel's development, despite the game being demoed at various trade shows and conventions in 2019.
N1RV Ann-A is planned for release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. On a more positive note, Damas also confirmed that VA-11 Hall-A will be available to play on Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription service for the month of December on Windows PCs.
