Nippon Ichi Software previously revealed a bunch of new screenshots, info and a trailer for Poison Control, a new IP action RPG coming to PS4 and Switch. Long story short the game is about a male or female protagonist who ends up in hell and gets possessed by a cute girl named Doku Musume. Together, they infiltrate other hells created by various cute girls in order to purify poison swamps.

The battle system requires players to defeat enemies and purify poison swamps. You control Doku Musume and everything enclosed within her path will get purified, including enemies who will be destroyed. To do that, the protagonist needs to trace a trajectory to guide Doku Musume, and circle around the poison to purify it. Overall, the game flow of Poison Control is exploring hell, fighting monsters, having dialogues with Doku Musume and picking story changing meaningful dialogues choices, looking for poison swamps, and purifying them.

Enemies who get circled in Doku Musume’s trajectory ends up being defeated, and they can turn into new weapons the protagonist can use. However, your character gradually loses HP themself when in a poison swamp. The protagonist can also get new weapons to fight, as well switch to third-person shooter mode with Doku Musume possessing their arm and changing into a gun.

The character designs are by Madoka Hanagi, who previously worked on games such as the Disgaea series, The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2, and The Princess Guide. Madoka Hanagi also illustrated many cards in Z/X — Zillions of enemy X-, the card game by Nippon Ichi Software and Broccoli.
