The revival of Ghosts n’ Goblins

It was announced late in 2020 that we will finally get another entry within the Ghosts ‘n Goblins series. It has been revealed that Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection will appear exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on February 25th for $29.99 this year. The very last entry that we saw within the Ghosts ‘n Goblins series came out back in ’10 and was known as Golden Knights II. The Ghosts ‘n Goblins series has been around since ’85 and as a run n gun platformer and the series was somewhat of an attraction on the NES & SNES between the mid 80’s-early 90’s. There are some who wonder whether or not Ghosts ‘n Goblins would still be an attraction in the year 2021. The amount of nostalgia that the Ghosts ‘n Goblins gives people would probably be enough to draw the attention of gamers from the 16-bit era of gaming. In terms of whether or not Ghosts ‘n Goblins could do huge numbers in terms of sales on the Nintendo Switch remains to be seen.

Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is expected to be priced at $29.99 for the Nintendo Switch following its upcoming release. The visuals for Ghosts ‘n Goblins include refined 2D graphics which looks way better than Gold Knights II. In fact, the visuals in Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection look somewhat similar to Capcom’s MegaMan 11 game from ’18. The gameplay mechanics are similar to that of older installments within the series in relation to attacking enemies . Also, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection has more realism to it compared to previous installments since Arthur can lose clothing after being attacked. In Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection players have to overcome various foes including undead skeletons and zombies in multiple levels. The game provides players with four gameplay difficulty options including Page, Squire, Knight and Legend mode. The replay value of Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is likely to be very high and will definitely appeal to those who have been waiting over ten for another installment within the series since Gold Knights II.
