The OG is back in Rainbow Cotton

It was about six months back that we saw a couple of ‘Cotton’ releases. But now the OG arrives for play on PC and console, with launch of Rainbow Cotton. 

Following on from pretty decent drops of Cotton 100% and Panorama Cotton at the back end of 2023 is that of Rainbow Cotton. It releases onto Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, as well as PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC through Steam. 

A retro past

If you’re a fan of the old-school Cotton series, then this should be one to excite. A full remastering of the original 2000 Dreamcast release, Rainbow Cotton hits modern systems with innovative gameplay mechanics, a local 2-player mode and more included. More being a ton of colour and cuteness. 

It may be a retro past that Cotton has embraced, but now this one has been reinvented for the present, adding in twists, upgrades and more, as you take in an arcade-y journey through the most whimsical of worlds.

The latest from the ININ Games team, the 3D visuals on offer here, as well as the opportunity to go power-up hunting, should excite. 

Key features

  • Bring on the Nostalgia: The Retro Mode allows you to experience the charm of the original Dreamcast version– as authentic as it can possibly be!
  • Enhanced Gaming Experience: Revamped snap-back, lock-on targeting, controller rumble & speaker support, and more for a more luxurious gaming experience.
  • Cotton’s New Look: Immerse yourself in the magic of the upgraded, stunning visuals!
  • Dedicated Little Sibling Mode: Play as Cotton and Silk together with your Player 2 in this newly added local co-op mode!
  • Team Sub or Team Dub?!: The fully animated cutscenes return in their original Japanese dubbing with translated English, French, Spanish, Italian, and German subtitles for your viewing pleasure!

Buy now!

You’ll find Rainbow Cotton on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. it’s downloadable through the Xbox Store as always. Priced at £17.99, it feels like a decent one to take a punt on but we’ll let you know for sure in full review soon. 

Alternatively, you can grab Rainbow Cotton from the digital stores of PlayStation, Switch and PC (Steam). 

Let us know if you decide to play this one. 

Rainbow Cotton Description

Cotton, the legendary witch is back, and this time in 3D!

Get ready for this formerly Japanese exclusive cute ‘em up gem to be “reconjured”.

ININ and Success have teamed up once again to bring you a massively improved – and for the first time worldwide – re-release of Rainbow Cotton.

Originally released in 2000 on Sega’s Dreamcast, Rainbow Cotton takes you on an arcade-inspired journey through a number of fantastically designed, enchanting stages: from a cozy moonlit town draped in Christmas lights, through a mysterious sunken forest, all the way to a magical castle above the clouds. Clothed in charming 3D graphics these levels include massive bosses as well as alternative routes to explore, guaranteeing high replay value.

So, collect power-ups to build up your flashy projectiles and hurl them at the colorful enemies. Use powerful magic attacks to clear the screen with fireballs and lighting. Together with some trusty fairies you might stop the evil demon Tweed and help Cotton secure the elusive willow candy for herself.

This already magical experience is enhanced by fully localized anime cutscenes and a graphical overhaul, as well as numerous quality-of-life improvements.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
