|A direct sequel to the original Cotton and virtually an arcade-perfect port of the version for the Sega Titan Video arcade hardware.|
This game marks the introduction of two new primary characters: Appli, a young princess, and her anthropomorphic hat, Needle.
Cotton 2 sees a return to traditional horizontal scrolling in the series, but it also stands out among shoot-'em-ups in general for its unique gameplay system. With a heavy incorporation of Newtonian physics, Cotton 2 ultimately mixes elements of 2D platformers with traditional shoot 'em up gameplay.
The first release of this game also included a mini-calendar for 1998 and a special edition included a Cotton themed teacup.
