It appears as if BEEP has announced their plans to partner with Rocket Engine (publisher of Trouble Witches) port/update the X68000 version of Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams for modern consoles and operating systems. ... And apparently release a floppy disk version of the x68000! Also will include some updates, like redesigning the screen for 16:9, extra characters (from Trouble Witches)

Relevant links mention the likelihood of physical releases for consoles (Will there be tea involved?), and a release on Steam. No word of non-Steam release (fat chance sadly). An 'arrange' mode will be included.

Man, everyone is bringing out the old shmups these days. IMO a more than pleasant surprise. Kino has gone on and on about how much the x68000 version of Cotton is excellent and it seems like the guys in the interview consider it better than the arcade version (all I can say is that the PCE port is more fun than the arcade version).

Cotton's a very good game, but while I've played the arcade and PS1 versions, I haven't played the X68k. I guess I should.

X68k Cotton is very enhanced over arcade. Has a lot of new sprites, lots of added parallax, 2 new exclusive bosses, and old bosses all have new attack patterns. For the insane, play it on YOU DO difficulty.

It really does seem like the folks bringing back the shooters of yore are trying to outdo each other in terms of how obscure their source material is ("We'll add Cybattler DLC!" "Oh yeah? We'll port the X68K version of ours!"); personally I prefer both the look and gameplay of Cotton 2 and Boomerang over the older games in the series, but still a nice surprise.

Props to the OP for that poll, though. :mrgreen:

I knew there were somenew bosses, but you gave a fuller picture. All I remember from dabbling in the emulator is "hey, these bosses are different!" I guess it's a good thing to have this over say, Cotton 100% or the arcade game. You might as well pick the most content-rich version of the game, eh?

Ha, I was kind of getting at that. What's next? The Allumer Box Set? Brave Blade port? Actually, that'd be good. Do that.
While I enjoy the off-kilter gameplay of Cotton 2, the original has a nice straight-forward appeal to me despite Cotton's giant sprite.

Would have been nice if they included Cotton 2 and Boomerang as well in the package, still, nice little surprise that I'll buy as I've never played the X68k version.

I agree, but it seems like a lot of announcements with very long wait times (As far as console releases). So many earlier announcements saying early 2019 summer release...the waiting game is sort of getting old. In lieu of switch that is, they seem to keep pumping them out.

I kinda want a rerelease of Rainbow Cotton, in spite of some considering it being the worst of the series.

The big question is will the PC version keep the DANCING KEYBOARD? Finally giving RGB Keyboards an actual reason to exist?

Nice surprise. I only ever played the PCE and PS1 Cotton games, and I enjoyed them enough to be looking forward to this.
