Prepare to armor up and brave the Demon Realm in Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection, available now for digital download from Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch. Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is a modern reboot of the iconic Capcom series Ghosts ‘n Goblins, complete with storybook-like graphics and challenging action-platforming gameplay. The newest entry in the legendary franchise finds the fearless knight Arthur in a haunting new adventure inspired by the original Ghosts ‘n Goblins and its sequel, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts.

The classic game that had you testing your skills is back in a new way!

Paying homage to Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, the latest entry combines the franchise’s action-platforming gameplay with storybook-like graphics and challenging new obstacles.

The experience you know and love, born anew!

The Demon Realm is divided into zones, and Arthur will have to conquer stages in each zone during his quest to rescue the princess. In zones that have multiple stages, Arthur can proceed by completing a stage of his choice.

Enjoy the Exquisite difficulty

Novices and arcade loyalists alike can enjoy battling through the Demon Realm by selecting one of three difficulty modes: Squire, Knight and Legend. The all-new Page mode also allows newcomer apprentices to respawn on the spot with unlimited lives.

You can choose from multiple difficulty modes, from the highest difficulty mode of the series tradition to the one that is just suitable for improving your skills.

Beating it Just Once Won’t Cut It! Full of interesting new elements

Meanwhile, veteran Ghosts ‘n Goblins fans will find themselves in both new and familiar territory with stages like “Graveyard” where hordes of Zombies lurk at every turn and “Caverns of the Occult” where certain enemies can only be seen in complete darkness. Weary adventurers beware: Arthur’s journey is not over when he defeats the final boss. Similar to classic Ghosts ‘n Goblins titles, brave knights will discover a whole new world of fright and foes on their second playthrough of the game, which will present new challenges and transformed stages.

These transformed stages are called Shadow Stages. In addition to their darker aesthetic, the types of enemies and gameplay elements encountered will also be totally changed.

Enter the “Hell Hole” or not is up to player. And of course, gallant accomplishments will be well rewarded!

Restore the Umbral Tree to obtain magic and skills

To unlock and improve these spells and skills, Arthur will need to restore the Umbral Tree to its former glory. By finding the elusive Umbral Bees hidden throughout each stage, he can return them to the Umbral Tree to learn and upgrade magic and skills. Arthur can also forget spells and skills and choose to learn others instead. Picking the right ones for the job at hand will prove indispensable!

After releasing the rank level, you can activate more powerful magic. Power up both appearance and effect!

A Series First: Intense Two Player Couch Co-op!

This new entry in the series also introduces two-player local co-op to the Ghosts ‘n Goblins universe for the first time ever. Friends and family members can now join forces with Arthur on his quest to overcome evil as one of three supporting characters: Berry, who creates barriers for protection; Kerry, who carries Arthur through danger; and Archie, who creates bridges to cross.

The Three Wise Guys, floating through the air in their ghostly glory,
can each use a different magic power as well as attack with projectiles.
