Getting into the anime shooter genre of video games, Nippon Ichi Software America last night confirmed their plans to bring the action-packed third-person shooter Poison Control to the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in 2021. Developed by the same team at Nippon Ichi Software that brought us Penny-Punching Princess and The Princess Guide, this is being described as a game featuring a “darkly humorous tale of redemption”.
Poison Control revolves around a mysterious phenomenon which causes spirits to become trapped within poisonous manifestations of their own personal despair. The only hope for them is to be purified by the haughty Poisonette and her amnesiac Soul Mate.As they venture through the various Belles’ Hells, they will encounter the 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.
Expect to hear more about this Action Shooter in the lead-up to their multiplatform launch next year. Until then, check out Poison Control’s promoted features and initial screenshots below:
