The creative team behind Penny-Punching Princess and The Princess Guide are back with a new title. Called Poison Control, it looks like it has the same vibrant aesthetic and wicked sense of humour as those other titles, and we now know that it will release on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on April 13 in North America, April 16 in Europe, and April 20 across Oceania.
From the press release:
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.
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.
