Beep, the video game sales division of Japanese company Sangatu Usagi no Mori, has established a publishing division and announced a reboot of the 1991-released, Success-developed arcade shoot ’em up Cotton as its first project. Tentatively titled Cotton Reboot, it will be released for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam. Release date and price were not announced.

Cotton Reboot is based on the X68000 version of Cotton, which was brushed up from the original arcade release. While it adds a new “Arrange Mode” that suited to current hardware specifications, it also includes the original version of the game.

In addition to the reboot version, Beep also announced plans to re-release the X68000 version of Cotton as a physical floppy disk for the platform this summer.

Here is an overview of the original Cotton, via MobyGames:

Cotton is a 2D side-scrolling shooter in which the player takes the role of the young witch Cotton, who sets out on her magical broom on a quest to get her favorite candy. Fortunately for us her obsession gets her in the way of several world-threatening terrors that she must destroy in standard shooter fare.

The game features an experience-earning system in which 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.

Visit the Cotton series 40th anniversary website here and Cotton Reboot official website here.

Thanks, Famitsu.

Cotton-Guardian-Force-Saturn-Tribute_04-

City Connection announced shoot ’em up collection Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute for PlayStation 4 and Switch at Shooting Game Daikanshasai 2021. It will launch on September 30 in Japan in both standard and special editions. Pre-orders open April 27. City Connection is also considering additional platforms.

Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute

The collection includes the 1997-released Cotton 2, and the 1998-released Cotton Boomerang and Guardian Force. All three titles were released for arcade and Sega Saturn, but as the title “Saturn Tribute” implies, they are based on the Sega Saturn version.

Various quality-of-life features have also been added, including a function to use rapid-fire shooting as standard, the ability to rewind to past scenes, quick save and load, online rankings, and more.

In related news, the 30th anniversary Cotton title in development by Success will be relesed for arcade. The game itself has yet to be shown as the development team are not satisfied with it in its current stage, but assure that they are confident about its quality.

Thanks, 4Gamer.net.

  • Dav changed the title to Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute, Cotton 100%, and Panorama Cotton coming west in 2021

Cotton

ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games will release Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute, Cotton 100%, and Panorama Cotton in 2021 in the west, the companies announced. Platforms were not announced.

While Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on September 30 in Japan (with English text support), this is the first announcement of new ports for Cotton 100% and Panorama Cotton. It is also the first time all of these titles will be officially available in the west.

Get the details below, via ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games.

Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute

Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute

Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute comes with two awesome games of the Cotton universe—Cotton 2 and Cotton Boomerang. Plus, the retro shoot ’em up Guardian Force offers a variety besides the magical adventures of the iconic “cute ’em up” heroine, spicing up the tribute.

Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute will be available at Strictly Limited Games as a Limited Edition and a Collector’s Edition.

Cotton 100%

Cotton 100%

Cotton 100% gives new Cotton players a great jump start into the franchise. The game was originally released in 1994 on the Super Famicom and later in 2003 on PlayStation. Coming in with a bright, colorful palette, it’s ideal for beginners, since it’s easier than the original Cotton.

Cotton 100% will be available for digital store download coming from ININ Games, and as a Limited and Collector’s Edition at Strictly Limited Games.

Panorama Cotton

Panorama Cotton

Panorama Cotton, originally published in 1994, introduces a fresh, new gameplay design into the Cotton franchise. The “pseudo 3D” shoot ‘em up was considered a technical prodigy when it was released on the Mega Drive.

After the queen emerges from the castle in a hurry to save the world from falling into chaos, Cotton and Silk are setting off on their new adventure.

Panorama Cotton will be available for digital download from the online store coming from ININ Games, and Strictly Limited Games as Limited and Collector’s Edition.

ININ Games also teased “a very special announcement coming later this year in celebration of Cotton‘s 30th birthday.” In Japan, a 30th anniversary game titled Cotton Rock ‘n’ Roll is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on December 23, followed by PC between winter 2021 and 2022, so the ININ Games announcement might be a western release of that.

Alerta pra galere, parece que essa coletânea sofre de input lag.

 

parece ser isso.

Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute on Nintendo Switch features fully working SEGA Saturn emulator

cottonsaturnemulator-750x422.png

City Connection just recently released Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute that compiled Cotton 2, Cotton Boomerang and Guardian Force on a single cartridge. The game was, well, not well received due to the emulation being used having input lag, making the games hard to play.

The story would have ended there but, GBATemp user Iisreal2301 figured out a way to load his own SEGA Saturn images onto the game file, basically allowing you to boot up any SEGA Saturn game by tricking the system into thinking its loading a Cotton game!

Sadly the emulation is far from perfect, but it seems to be a working project by users from GBATemp. I guarantee you that Nintendo will crack down on this game’s fun, but for now here is a list of games tested by GBATemp user Levine 19:

 

  • Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean (USA) (RE) – Perfect
  • AmokPerfect
  • Astal (USA) – Perfect
  • Burning Rangers (USA) – Almost Perfect (Minor audio cracks at random times, I was able to complete the tutorial no problem)
  • Bug! (USA) – Perfect
  • Bug Too! (USA) – Perfect
  • Bulk Slash (Japan) – Unplayable (Game hangs on black screen after start screen)
  • Clockwork Knight (USA) – Perfect
  • Clockwork Knight 2 (USA) – Unplayable (Crashes after main menu)
  • Dark SaviorPerfect
  • Die Hard Arcade (USA) – Perfect
  • Dragon Force (USA) – Perfect
  • Dungeons & Dragons: Shadows Over Mystara (Japan) – Perfect
  • Elevator Action Returns (Japan) – Perfect
  • Guardian Heroes (USA) – Perfect
  • Gungriffon (USA) – Perfect
  • Keio Flying Squadron 2 (Europe) – Perfect
  • Legend of Oasis (USA) – Perfect
  • Linkle Liver Story (Japan) (English Translation) – Perfect
  • Magic Knight Rayearth (USA) – Perfect
  • Metal Slug – Super Vehicle-001 (Japan) (Rev A) – Perfect
  • Mr. Bones (USA) / Mr. Bones (Japan) – Unplayable (Both regions, game hangs on black screen and never proceeds)
  • Night Striker S (Japan) – Perfect
  • NiGHTS into Dreams… (USA) (RE) – Almost Perfect (Often there is a very minor frame drop, but the only reason I even noticed is due to the audio. Otherwise, you can’t even tell.)
  • Noon (Japan) (Rev A) – Perfect
  • Panzer Dragoon (USA) – Perfect
  • Panzer Dragoon Zwei (USA) – Perfect
  • Panzer Dragoon Saga (USA) (Disc 1) – Almost Perfect (Minor audio cracks at random times, I was able to play on foot & riding on the dragon without issue)
  • Powerslave (USA) – Perfect
  • Radiant Silvergun (Japan) – Perfect
  • Rayman (USA) / Rayman (Japan) – Unplayable (Both regions have an input bug. Both in the main menu & in-game, when you press a directional key (Joystick or D-Pad, both are effected), the game responds to the input VERY rapidly, even with a very light press. It ultimately makes the game unplayable)
  • Sega Ages: Power Drift – Almost Perfect (Minor Graphical issues: vehicle disappears when you’re on/under a bridge)
  • Saturn Bomberman (USA) – Perfect
  • Shinrei Jusatsushi Taroumaru (Japan) – Perfect
  • Sonic 3D Blast (USA) – Perfect
  • Sonic Jam (USA) – Unplayable (Crashes at “Press Start” screen)
  • Sonic R (USA) – Almost Perfect (Minor audio cracks at random times, I was able to finish a race with no issues.)
  • Steamgear Mash (Japan) – Perfect
  • Virtua Fighter 2 (USA) (RE) – Somewhat Playable (The game has a consistent amount of slowdown it seems, I would say it’s in the 40-50fps range if I had to guess)
  • Virtual On: Cyber Troopers (USA) – Perfect? (For some reason the game initially makes you confirm 2 controllers before the start screen. However you can progress as normal in single player after this. No other issues)
  • Willy Wombat (Japan) – Perfect

Like always this is a work in progress and you can see the GBATemp thread here.

Agora aceita Jogos que usam 4mb de ram:

Citar

BIG UPDATE!!! 4MB RAM and Stretched Widescreen is possible with a minor change to the .ini config!!!

Decrypted Configuration File

I have gone ahead and attached the decrypted .ini config, courtesy of @cucholix
download the attached "Config_Switch.zip" file, which contains the .ini file you'll need.
I would recommend editing the .ini config using Notepad++, but regular Notepad will work also.

---!!! IMPORTANT !!!---
Make sure to delete your save file after making any changes to the .ini config, otherwise the changes will not take effect!!
Additionally the .ini config will work with any of the 3 core games, you just need to rename the attached .ini config to the corresponding title.
- "Cotton2_Switch.ini"
- "CottonBoomerang_Switch.ini"
- "GuardianForce_Switch.ini"

Config Cheat Sheet
- WideScreen="0" (Widescreen OFF | DEFAULT)
- WideScreen="1" (Widescreen ON)

- CartridgeID="00" (No RAM Cartridge)
- CartridgeID="21" (Backup RAM Cartridge)
- CartridgeID="5a" (1MB RAM Cartridge | DEFAULT)
- CartridgeID="5c" (4MB RAM Cartridge)




Hiding the "Options" icon.
Thanks once again to @cucholix we are also able to hide the "Options" icon from the bottom left corner of the screen.
Attached is a "Texture.zip" file that contains the custom "Texture.tex" file you'll need.
Just simply replace the existing file in your /romfs/ folder with this one.
The options menu itself will still work upon pressing " - " on your controller.
