There’s no doubt that the Switch has been a system blessed with some very strong retro representation, and a specific genre that has seen a lot of great titles come out of the woodwork has been shooters. Cotton Fantasy, which will feel very familiar to gamers who checked out the successful Cotton Reboot, is a title that walks the line between the older and newer eras of shooting, offering up a pretty classic play style but steeped in colorful and pretty gorgeous visuals, bringing the best of both worlds to the table. In particular one thing I liked about Fantasy was the variety of characters to choose from whose shooting styles tend to differ quite a bit, and though most are in line with typical old school shooters, there’s more at play here than just the firing pattern so you can really feel the pro and con in each character for the most part. While I’d say the asking price is a bit on the aggressive side, if you have an appreciation for well-made arcade shooting action there’s quite a bit of goodness to enjoy in this package.
