Cotton on the hunt for Willows!

 ININ Games is gearing up for the release of BEEP’s side-scrolling shoot ’em up Cotton Reboot! releasing both digitally and physically on Sony PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Europe, Australasia and North America on 20th July.


Cotton is already a much revered and iconic brand appearing on many consoles and computers from  PC Engine, Neo Geo Pocket Color, right through to Playstation. Cotton Reboot! presents PlayStation and Switch gamers a fun, colourful, cute ’em up that offers brand new features, 7 stages that really highlight what a side scrolling shoot ’em up should deliver and it does it in abundance, together with a dazzling display of onscreen cast and challenges.




The  player takes the role of the young witch Cotton, who ventures out on her magical broom on a quest to get her favourite candy. What unfolds involves her getting entangled with several world threatening terrors which she must destroy. A really cool feature is the more enemies the player kills the more he can upgrade his weapon by collecting power crystals. Players can also charge their weapon for special attacks and enlist the aid of Silk, Cotton’s magical fairy friend who can form up in different “option” configurations..


Visual/Audio/Gameplay Features

  1. Remastered with hand-drawn HD graphics
  2. Remixed soundtracks
  3. Comes with Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams in the X6800 original mode
  4. + 2 more game modes Arrange mode features 16:9 screens, redesigned graphics and characters. Score attack mode: the player competes for scores online within a limited time (2 minute and 5 minute modes can be selected).

Nintendo Life (Import)

Of all the “cute ’em ups” out there, it remains one of the best……………. 8/10 GREAT

M! Maniac (Import)

The gameplay is as precise as it is powerful, the shots have a lot of bang and the levels are interestingly designed. And the X68000 version is not just a nice bonus, but a completely independent game with its own challenge and different systems – a great package for every shooter fan!

Successful shooter package: Enjoy an action classic in its best home version and a great reinterpretation.  81%/100


Cotton Reboot! really does define what is best about the cute ’em, shoot ’em up genre and offers a whole lot more in what is a really magical and enchanting, atmospheric experience.
