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 certain 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!
Multiple Cotton series titles will be coming overseas for the very first time as part of the series' 30th anniversary celebrations!
The original adventures of Cotton the witch will soon be making a comeback thanks to ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games. In recognition of the series’ 30th anniversary, both companies will be publishing several of the its earliest entries in the coming months. These include Cotton 100%, which was originally only released on the Super Famicom in Japan; the fabled Panorama Cotton, a pseudo-3D shoot'em-up which called the Sega Mega Drive home (but again, only in Japan), and Cotton & Guardian Force Saturn Tribute. This last one includes three games originally only released in Japan in the arcades and for the Sega Saturn: Cotton 2, Cotton Boomerang and a non-Cotton game known as Guardian Force.
The first two games: Cotton 100% and Panorama Cotton will be available through both ININ and Strictly Limited. ININ Games is the place to go for the digital version on the PSN store or Nintendo eShop, while Strictly Limited Games will be offering fans physical limited and collector’s editions. As for Cotton & Guardian Force Saturn Tribute, it will be available as a physical limited or collector’s edition through Strictly Limited Games, while the digital versions will be available on either the PSN store or the Nintendo eShop.
That seems to be all Cotton games ever released, apart from the abysmal Dreamcast exclusive Rainbow Cotton.
And besides this massive trip down memory lane, Success (the developer behind the series) is releasing two new games in this seminal series as well!
Cotton Reboot! being a complete remake of the very first Cotton arcade game for the current gen of consoles, whereas Cotton Rock 'n' Roll will be a completely new title in the series.
