NIS America has just announced that their upcoming title, Poison Control, will be out this week on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The game is actually out in North America today, but will be out in Europe and Oceania this Friday, 16 April 2021.
Playing as Poisonette, you must use your powers to purify Poison Mires while also blasting away enemies at the same time with her Soul Mate in this “shooter-meets-action” adventure. Additionally, you’re able to customise your gameplay experience in a number of ways including choosing a male or female Soul Mate, unlocking new weapons and enhancements, and increasing stats through choice-based dialogue.
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?
Here are some of the key features:
A Poisonous Partnership: Swap between the poison-absorbing Poisonette and her gun-wielding Soul Mate, and combine firepower and zone control to destroy the creatures of the Poison Mires. Unlock new weapons such as poison bombs, diffusions, and even fire poisons by purifying areas, and enhance your Poisonette’s stats through your dialogue choices.
Enigmatic Encounters: Uncover the mysterious circumstances that set Poisonette and her Soul Mate on the poisonous path towards redemption. Along the way, encounter other Poisonettes, each with their own agenda, as well as fallen souls whose personal Belles’ Hells must be cleansed in order to be set free.
Corrupt and Colorful: With an art style that’s as grim as it is charming, this twisted tale practically jumps off the screen! From vivid stages to vibrant gameplay effects, this adventure is as much a visual experience as it is visceral.
