“Cotton Reboot!” Official Trailer Released
Game publisher Beep has released the official trailer for Cotton Reboot!, a reimagining of the 2-D shoot-em-up originally released in arcades and later on the TurboGraphx CD and the X68000.
For those out of the know, original Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams was the first of a multi-game franchise starring a young witch who flys on her broomstick and blasts monsters with magical bolts, all in a quest to retrieve her precious, stolen Willow candy. Must be some tasty candy.
This “Reboot!” version includes all of the improvements from the X68000 release of Cotton, while also allowing players to experience the game in either its original form or a new “Arrange Mode” which takes advantage of modern hardware platforms (it looks prettier). Beep is also planning a physical release of Cotton Reboot!, with pre-order bonuses including “the greatest teacup of all-time.” Big talk, Beep…

Cotton Reboot! is currently scheduled for release for PS4 and Nintendo Switch on 25 February 2021 in Japan. A Steam PC version has also been announced, but no release date has been announced.
