While Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on September 30 in Japan (with English text support), this is the first announcement of new ports for Cotton 100% and Panorama Cotton. It is also the first time all of these titles will be officially available in the west.
Get the details below, via ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games.
Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute
Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute comes with two awesome games of the Cotton universe—Cotton 2 and Cotton Boomerang. Plus, the retro shoot ’em up Guardian Force offers a variety besides the magical adventures of the iconic “cute ’em up” heroine, spicing up the tribute.
Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute will be available at Strictly Limited Games as a Limited Edition and a Collector’s Edition.
Cotton 100% gives new Cotton players a great jump start into the franchise. The game was originally released in 1994 on the Super Famicom and later in 2003 on PlayStation. Coming in with a bright, colorful palette, it’s ideal for beginners, since it’s easier than the original Cotton.
Cotton 100% will be available for digital store download coming from ININ Games, and as a Limited and Collector’s Edition at Strictly Limited Games.
Panorama Cotton, originally published in 1994, introduces a fresh, new gameplay design into the Cotton franchise. The “pseudo 3D” shoot ‘em up was considered a technical prodigy when it was released on the Mega Drive.
After the queen emerges from the castle in a hurry to save the world from falling into chaos, Cotton and Silk are setting off on their new adventure.
Panorama Cotton will be available for digital download from the online store coming from ININ Games, and Strictly Limited Games as Limited and Collector’s Edition.
ININ Games also teased “a very special announcement coming later this year in celebration of Cotton‘s 30th birthday.” In Japan, a 30th anniversary game titled Cotton Rock ‘n’ Roll is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on December 23, followed by PC between winter 2021 and 2022, so the ININ Games announcement might be a western release of that.
