Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory, an adaptation of the tabletop RPG, may be coming to Switch

Happy, happy!

It looks like Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory could be seeing release on Switch in the future. Walmart's website has added a listing for a Switch version of the game, complete with placeholder cover art. That same cover art names Bigben as the publisher, while the listing itself names Maximum Games. Hopefully that discrepancy doesn't mean the listing itself is bunk.

While we wait for confirmation on Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory hitting Switch, you can check out full gameplay details below.

Paranoia is a CRPG that takes place in humanity's last idyllic refuge, Alpha Complex, which is controlled by Friend Computer. All citizens enjoy a life of joy, cheerfulness and cleanliness. Questioning the benevolence of Friend Computer is an act of treason. Having access to information beyond your security clearance is an act of treason. Refusing to drink your daily dose of Bouncy Bubble Beverage is an act of treason. Treason is punishable by summary execution.

Stay alert! Trust no one!

Traitors are everywhere, plotting to destroy The Computer, Alpha Complex itself, and our precious way of life. Identify them, report them – or eliminate them as the treasonous scum they are. Keep your laser handy!
You lead a team of Troubleshooters with RED security clearance. Your job is to find trouble – and shoot it. Friend Computer monitors your every move, alert for any sign of treason, and will undoubtedly reward you for prompt and heroic action in defence of Alpha Complex – or punish treasonable acts, possibly by assigning you to be used as reactor shielding.

A retro-futuristic world filled with technologies as wondrous as they are deadly
Create and lead a team of four Troubleshooters working for Friend Computer
Choose your specialisations from 9 available skills
Unique character progression through cloning (if you die, you progress!)
Real time tactical combat system with active pause, inspired by classic CRPG games
Original enemies, including malfunctioning robots, aggressive drinks dispensers and defective clones

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!
