Looks to be launching around the same time as Japan!

Cotton Reboot!, a remaster of the classic 90’s "cute ‘em up", was previously announced for a Japanese release on February 25th, 2021. Now, ININ Games has announced that in Q1 2021, they will be publishing the game digitally and physically (including the limited edition) in the West (Europe and North America). Check out the game's overview below!

Shoot ‘Em Up With an Adorable Main Character
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 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!

Armed with explosive fire power, a cast of cunning enemies to confront and some enchanting and beautiful graphics sees this endearing title as one that enlightens the imagination. Cotton will embark on her journey through the game’s seven amazing colorful stages with the hope that she will be rewarded at the end. As you move through a graveyard with wormed eyeballs or through a forest with trees that are part human form, eyes and mouth, hails of bullets and triple lazer fire from Cotton’s latest weapon resource that can be swapped and changed throughout as an endless onslaught of enemies fill the screen with their own arsenal of power. Avoid and maneuvering becomes as important as straight shooting.
