Amidst a day of news regarding Resident Evil, Capcom took a brief moment to address another horror-heavy title from its portfolio, Ghosts ‘n Goblins. The publisher confirmed that Ghost ‘n Goblins Resurrection will indeed be making the double jump onto PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
Launching on Nintendo Switch back in February, Ghost ‘n Goblins Resurrection is a new take on the hard-as-nails 1985 arcade classic, and sees hero Sir Arthur battling through a variety of grisly environments and gruesome monsters on a quest to rescue the fair Princess Prin-Prin from dapper demon Astaroth.
Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection features the twitchy platforming action of the original title, but adds new weapons and skills, a selection of alternate difficulty settings, cute storybook-esque visuals, redesigned boss characters, and several new foes – joining a rogues’ gallery that includes Red Arremer, Woody Pig and, best of all, “Skeleton Murderer”. Fortunately, Arthur doesn’t have to go it alone, as a (frankly weird) co-op mode will let a friend aid the brave knight with a variety of special abilities, such as bridge building and shield generation.
No release date was offered for the new console and PC ports, but we’ll be sure to bring you up to speed when that info is available. In the meantime, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is available now on Nintendo Switch, and you can check out Chris Carter’s review right here.
