This latest title by Nippon Ichi Software looks like an odd mix of third person shooter and Taito’s Qix, set in a colourful rendition of Hell. A new character trailer shows off some of the spirits you’ll be purifying during your journey to escape.
Both the Switch and PS4 versions have collectors editions available for pre-order from NIS America’s European store. It comes with a soundtrack CD, art book, and a ‘soft touch button’, whatever that means.
An overview of Poison Control via NIS America:
From the creative minds that brought you Penny-Punching Princess and The Princess Guide comes a darkly humorous tale of redemption!
When a mysterious phenomenon causes spirits to become trapped within poisonous manifestations of their own personal despair, only the haughty Poisonette and her amnesiac Soul Mate can purify them. As they venture through the various Belles’ Hells, they will encounter fallen souls longing for escape, other Poison Maidens with their own agendas, and twisted creatures born from the Poison Mires who threaten to stop them! What dark truths will they uncover about the venomous world around them… as well as each other?
This shooter-meets-action title combines high-octane gameplay and a grim-yet-charming art style into one unforgettable adventure. Use Poisonette’s powers to purify areas of Poison Mires while blasting away enemies as her gunslinging Soul Mate. You can also customize your gameplay experience by choosing between a male or female Soul Mates, unlocking weapons and enhancements with each world you purify, and increasing certain stats of your Poisonette companion through choice-based dialogue.
