ININ and Success have teamed up to bring us an HD Remaster of Rainbow Cotton. The game will be available digitally for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One and PC Steam in Spring 2024. The game originally released for SEGA Dreamcast in 2000, and is the 5th installment in the Cotton franchise.
Dive right into this 3D rail shooter as the young witch Cotton, accompanied by her trusty fairy friend named Silk. Lured by the promise of delicious Willow, help Cotton confront the wicked demon Tweed and his legion of followers who have stolen the Legendary Willow from the enchanting land of York Country. Hop on your broomstick and go to town in this wacky adventure!
Rainbow Cotton features exciting gameplay reminiscent of its predecessor, the classic game Panorama Cotton. The game takes you on an arcade-inspired journey through a fantastic world full of surprises and challenges. Every stage in Rainbow Cotton is guarded by a massive boss that will put your skills to the ultimate test. Collect power-ups, build up your flashy projectiles, and hurl them at colorful enemies. Use powerful magic attacks to clear the screen with fireballs and lightning. Only the most courageous (and stubborn!) witches will prevail!
Here are some of Rainbow Cotton’s features:
- Dedicated Retro Mode: replicating the original experience as closely as possible.
- Enhanced controls: Revamped snap-back and lock-on features for a more engaging experience.
- Full localization, including the anime cutscenes!
- Graphic enhancements: particle effects, ambient occlusion, and more!
