There is no shortage of highly difficult games designed to infuriate some and satiate the masochistic lust of others. Titles like Dark Souls and Bloodborne come to mind, but one of the earliest games in this category is getting a remake for the Nintendo Switch. 

Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is a remake of the original arcade classic Ghosts ‘n Goblins. Known for its unforgiving difficulty and stiff controls, many a gamer has fallen victim to Ghosts ‘n Goblins notorious frustration. 

The new title seems to be an overhaul of the original arcade version rather than the more popular console ports to the NES and SNES. Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection appears to retain the same control scheme, many of the same weapons, and a similar armor system.

However, it looks like Arthur (the game’s protagonist) is more resilient: in the original, a single hit would shatter Arthur’s armor, leaving him in his boxers and one more hit away from death. When Arthur is damaged in Resurrection, his breastplate shatters first, leaving him in his greaves. Another hit will break his armored pants and reduce him to underwear, with a third hit turning him to a pile of bones. 

The graphics are also improved. The game has a “puppet theatre” aesthetic to it with characters and enemies resembling paper marionettes. The overall look is very cartoony with lots of detail in the two-dimensional world. 

Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection will launch on the Nintendo Switch in February 2021.
