Poison Control drops for Nintendo Switch and PS4

If nothing else, the development team's name game is on point. Check out some of the clever wordplay!

The wait is over and you can enjoy Poison Control starting today, publisher NIS America announced today. The game, developed by Nippon Ichi Software in Japan, is available for both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch and offers action and exploration aplenty.

Poison Control players use the powers of the haughty poison maiden, Poinsonette, to save spirits that have become trapped within poisonous manifestations of their personal despair. Throughout the region of Belles' Hells, the maiden and her amnesiac companion will have all sorts of adventures as they cross paths with other maidens and also the twisted creatures that inhabit the venomous realm.

Key features include:

  • 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.
Nippon Ichi Software most famously develops RPGs and strategy games such as those in the Disgaea series, but has ventured into more action-oriented territory on occasion with the previous likes of The Witch and the Hundred Knight, as well as the Prinny games. Not every experiment is a success. Do you suppose this game will be one of the team's triumphs?
