Ghosts ‘n Goblins has a reputation, and the 2021 remaster of the original hard-as-#@$! platformer, Ghosts ‘n Goblins: Resurrection, stays true to its namesake. Released by Capcom in February exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, Resurrection is getting an extra life on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on June 1.
Just as it is on the Nintendo eShop, it will be a standalone purchase for $29.99 on Steam, the PlayStation Store, and the Microsoft Store.
Ghosts ‘n Goblins: Resurrection may have a slick new coat of paint, which makes the game look utterly gorgeous, but underneath that veneer lies a game uncompromising in its difficulty. Players can’t even see the whole game on its easiest setting. Despite its relentless adherence to its legacy, which we found a bit taxing in our review, there are some really great moments to be had in Resurrection, and some will relish in the challenge it presents.
To offer a little help, Resurrection includes a multiplayer co op mode that can be turned on and off at will, and lets another player assume the roles of Archie, Barry, or Kerry to help Arthur make it through the Demon Realm on their way to Astaroth.
Alongside the news of Ghosts ‘n Goblins: Resurrection making its way to PC, PS4, and Xbox One this summer, Capcom revealed its latest arcade compilation would also be coming to all three platforms in May.
