The Game Awards 2020 contained plenty of reveals. This one can only be described as a blast from the past. The way past. Ghosts ‘n Goblins was one of those ancient greats that had you coming back for more even as you got absolutely destroyed in the first level. It was a battle against all kinds of horrible undead opponents and monsters, and now the franchise is coming back with an all new title injected with plenty of familiar aspects from Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Ghouls ‘n Ghosts. Get ready for Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection coming to the Switch on February 25.
Take on zombies, skeletons, pigmen, and many other iconic opponents in your quest, with new art direction and design. Even with their new takes, they’re quite recognizable. I’m curious as to how this new offering in the series will handle the difficulty of the game, because the original game was a memorization muscle memory nightmare, cool as it was. Are you going to be able to play with unlimited lives? Cheat codes? None of the above? We’ll see. But the original classics were definitely games that defined the term “Nintendo-hard.” Man, I’m still thinking about getting my armor dinged off by a stray zombie swing. Still, I do want to get back on the field with Arthur and try to time all my jumps and lance throws. I’m not sure why.
Well then, take a look at the trailer and see what kinds of ghosts and goblins are going to do you in when Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection lands on the Switch on February 25.
