  • Easily accessible Shoot ‘em up gameplay, perfect for newcomers, but with enough depth for veterans
  • 16 colourful and varied scrolling stages to unlock, with vertical, horizontal, and 3D movement
  • Light-hearted story with fun and charming cutscenes voiced entirely in Japanese (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish subtitles included)
  • Exhilarating soundtrack featuring iconic remastered tracks from past games
  • Unlockable content and different characters offer high replayability
  • Aim for the high score in your nation and globally with the featured ranking boards

The graphics aren’t quite cutting edge in Cotton Fantasy, but you don’t play a shmup for the graphics. Let us know if you plan to preorder the standard or limited collector’s edition of Cotton Fantasy on Switch.
