Rainbow Cotton’s HD remake swoops onto consoles, PC next week

ININ Games, which previously resurrected the super cute but challenging Cotton shmup franchise (our review here) in the form of Cotton Fantasy, is coming back for more!  Rainbow Cotton, which takes the shooter into the 3rd dimension and was originally released for the Sega Dreamcast way back in 2000, has received the HD remaster treatment and will be available soon for modern consoles and the PC.

The new and improved version of Rainbow Cotton has more than a few enhancements and quality of life improvements including updated visuals, controller feedback/haptics, lock-on capabilities and updated mechanics, a local co-op mode, both subbed and dubbed cutscenes and more.  Those who wish to check it out as it was originally presented can jump into the retro mode as well.

Check out some new media and stay tuned for the May 9th, 2024 release on PlayStation and Xbox platforms, the Switch and PC.
