ININ Games has announced a delay to the release of its upcoming shoot ’em up, Cotton Fantasy.
The game, which landed in Japan on December 23rd of last year as Cotton Rock ‘n’ Roll, was expected to arrive in the West in the early part of 2022 for Switch gamers, but will now not see a release until Spring.
Pre-orders for the physical standard edition of Cotton Fantasy are already available online, however, and a full list of stores can be found over at the game’s official website. Limited edition pre-orders can also be snapped up from Strictly Limited Games.
Here’s a few more details as to what players can expect from Cotton Fantasy once it finally arrives and, judging by our import review, it’ll be well worth the extended wait!
Cotton Fantasy is a brand-new entry in the Cotton series that sees Cotton and Silk embark on another adventure, this time in high-definition graphics and with modernized gameplay, but true to its roots!
