VA-11 Hall-A very likely for Switch release, due to GameMaker Studio 2 support

There's been an on again/off again discussion of bringing VA-11 Hall-A to Switch for quite some time now, but a number of stumbling blocks were hit along the way. Now it seems the game finally has a clear path to Switch, thanks to the reveal of GameMaker Studio 2 support on the platform. All the following details come from Kiririn51, Artist & Designer at Sukeban Games.

- port will likely be handled by Sukeban Games' PC Publisher.
- previous reports of NoA turning VA-11 Hall-A away due to 'Mature Content' are false.
- currently targeting a Christmas release.
- would be a 1:1 Port, no pixel/interlacing issues.
- lots of demand for the game on Switch since the Direct
- current release plan is eShop internationally, and a complete physical edition in Japan for importers (English/Japanese)
- very positive about the sales outlook for VA-11 Hall-A on Switch
- Kiririn51 has to thank Toby (Undertale dev) for putting pressure on Nintendo to sign an agreement with GM
- NoA had already approached Sukeban Games to put VA-11 Hall-A on Switch
- one possible name for the port is 'Mandatory Karmotrine' based off the Psycho-Pass game titled 'Mandatory Happiness' and the sometimes optional alcoholic ingredient used in VA-11 Hall-A
- port is still in planning stages
- final paperwork still needs be completed before the port can be officially announced/confirmed

As one last note, Kiririn51 says the next game from Sukeban will run on Unity and use 3D models. A Switch port is planned, depending on who publishes.
