It looks like City Connection will be releasing a shoot ’em up collection being titled Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch! This was done at the Shooting Game Daikanshasai event. The collection is set to launch on September 30, 2021 in Japan with a standard and special edition. Pre-orders open on April 27th.
The collection is set to gather the SEGA Saturn ports of the Cotton games which will include:
- Cotton 2 (1997)
- Cotton Boomerang (1998)
- Guardian Force (1998)
The collection will have all the modern emulation bells and whistles including save state, rapid fire, ability to rewind, online rankings, and more. The team is also working on Cotton: Reboot, which is due to come out later this year as well.
Who would have thought 2021 would have the Cotton series return?
