The 30th anniversary celebration is almost coming to a close, so while my Cotton obsession will no doubt go on, my news sources might dry up a bit and I’ll stop shoving it down everyone’s throats! Until then, we’ve got 100% more Cotton coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 next week with Cotton 100%, which will launch alongside the equally iconic Panorama Cotton.
Cotton 100% picks up after the recently rebooted original arcade game Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams, where the world once again fell into complete darkness after the evil villain Wool stole the seven willows. The Fairy Queen Velvet sent out Silk, a beautiful fairy in a skimpy bikini, to get the willows back. On her way, she meets the witch Nata de Cotton. And with our main character introduced, Cotton and Silk head off to save the world. Cotton 100% is a great introduction to everyone who’s new to the franchise and a throwback for everyone who played it on the SNES (or, specifically, the Super Famicon because it was Japan-only) back in 1994.
