Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is now available for Nintendo Switch. The game is a reboot of the iconic Ghosts ‘n Goblins and offers the same challenging gameplay experience. This version is based mainly on the first game and its sequel Ghouls ‘n Ghosts.

Ghosts ‘n Goblins was released in 1985 and since then spawned several sequels. It also resulted in spin-offs like the Gargoyle’s Quest series and the Maximo series.

New Version

In this latest incarnation, players take on the role of Arthur as he works his way through the Demon Realm to rescue the princess and with it bring back peace to the land. Enemies that Arthur must take on include the Red Arremer and the Skeleton Murderer. There’s also Cerberus, Cyclops, and of course, Astaroth.

Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection offers players the chance to try out eight different weapons. There’s the ever-dependable Lance and new ones like Spiked Ball and Hammer. New to this version as well, is the Umbral Tree, which is actually a skill tree. With this, Arthur can learn and upgrade different spells and skills that can help him on his journey.

New Features

Since the game is being released for the new generation, some new features are available for players to enjoy. One new feature is the two-player local co-op, a first for the franchise. That means family and friends can now join the fun and help Arthur complete his quest. The three supporting characters that players can choose to assist Arthur are Barry, Kerry, and Archie, each features unique abilities.

Long-time fans and new players can enjoy the game through three different difficulty modes: Squire, Knight, and Legend. There is now a Page mode that gives players the ability to respawn on the spot and offer unlimited lives.

Veterans can enjoy the game with stages like Graveyard, where Zombies hide and appear at every turn. The Caverns of the Occult stage, meanwhile, hides enemies in complete darkness by snuffing out candles.

By the way, when players beat the final boss, the journey doesn’t stop. Players can experience an entirely new world on their second playthrough.

Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is available for $29.99 and you can get it here.
