Capcom Announces Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection, Capcom Arcade Stadium for Switch

Capcom brings a horde of classics back to life with the Capcom Arcade Collection, and Ghosts 'n Goblins leads the way.

Ghosts 'n Goblins is coming back to life on Nintendo Switch as Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection, Capcom announced during The Game Awards 2020. Capcom also announced Capcom Arcade Stadium, a collection of 30 classics, including Street Fighter 2, for Nintendo Switch.

Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is a reboot of the arcade-to-console game, retaining the classic, brutal platforming of the original with updated graphics and a storybook style. It’s scheduled for a February 25, 2021, release.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
