Shmup fans and more specifically CUTE ’em up fans, it’s time to get back in the pilot seat with Cotton Reboot! As you can take away from the name, this is a reboot and it’s back from 1991. Graphics have been improved in this side-scrolling shmup and it looks very arcadey in style with large score multipliers exploding from enemies.
BEEP’S Cotton Reboot is set to release both digitally and physically on Sony PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. ININ Games will also publish Limited Editions and Amazon Japan even has the physical pre-order up for all you #SwitchCorp collectors out there. Currently, the projected release date is Q1/2021 in Europe and North America.

A young witch called Nata de Cotton is hot-headed, immature, overreacts and rides on a broomstick, accompanied by a fairy named Silk. Cotton is crazy about candies called “Willows”. Those candies are so good that she won’t let anything get in her way to get them. Talk about sugar cravings!
Armed with explosive firepower, a cast of cunning enemies to confront and some enchanting and beautiful graphics sees this endearing title as one that enlightens the imagination. Cotton will embark on her journey through the game’s seven amazing colourful stages with the hope that she will be rewarded at the end. As you move through a graveyard with wormed eyeballs or through a forest with trees that are part human form, eyes and mouth, hails of bullets and triple lazer fire from Cotton’s latest weapon resource that can be swapped and changed throughout as an endless onslaught of enemies fill the screen with their own arsenal of power. Avoid and manoeuvring becomes as important as straight-shooting.
Cotton Reboot is an updated, remastered version of the classic and iconic “cute’em’up” Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams with brand new features and updated visual designs. The game also features 3 game modes that include the X68000 original mode that faithfully emulates Sharp’s personal computer from the 1993 version. Arrange mode features 16:9 screens, redesigned graphics and characters. In Score attack mode the player competes for scores online within a limited time (2 minute and 5 minute mode can be selected).
