Story

A long time ago…

In a far off land our tale begins, its beauty matched by none.
The knight, Arthur, and the princess there, bathed in midday sun.
…but suddenly something’s amiss, the town is up in flames,
a cloud of darkness does emerge, the palace it does claim.

The shadow then extends its reach, to the Umbral Tree divine.
Its color fades, its vigor drained by powers most malign.
And with this chaos wrought, the Demon Lord plays his vile hand.
While Arthur’s back is turned, the princess he kidnaps as planned.

In haste does Arthur don his armor, to save his maiden fair.
To the Demon Realm he does depart, so demons best beware.


Gameplay

Just like its predecessors, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection makes use of simple controls that anyone can enjoy. Use them to your advantage as you fight your way through weird and spooky stages filled with unique enemies in this enchanting world brought to life with modern technology and game design philosophy!

Ghosts ‘n Goblins is, well, hard. Its unyielding difficulty has actually been a defining characteristic of the series, and Resurrection pays respect to that legacy. You’ll die, and you’ll die again, however you’ll dust yourself off and get better with every attempt as you learn more about your foes and further craft your strategy. You’ll struggle, but you’ll also bask in glory once you do eventually emerge victorious. That is Ghosts ‘n Goblins.

In Resurrection, Arthur can obtain 8 types of weapons, each with its own unique characteristics. Fell your foes with old favorites such as the Lance and the Dagger, shoot shockwaves with the Hammer to launch enemies, or send a Spiked Ball crashing along the ground to bowl them over instead! Use these—and more—to your advantage as you form your plan to progress through the Devil Realm!

In addition to his large arsenal of weapons, Arthur can also learn a magnitude of magic and skills. Use Thunderstorm to unleash a hailstorm of bolts in four directions, or learn Kitted Out to increase Arthur’s inventory space and carry more weapons. With tons more available, be sure to make room for magic and skills in your strategy!

Make full use of Arthur’s weapons, magic, and skills as you brave the ordeals of the Devil World to bring the princess home safely. Muster every ounce of grit you possess; you’re going to need it!

On top of single player mode, which focuses on the fun of hunkering down and overcoming challenges alone, Arthur can be aided in his quest by support characters, the Three Wise Guys. This gameplay style makes for an intense two player co-op experience—a first for the series.

Connect two controllers to play with a friend, side by side.
Note: Local co-op only. Online play is not supported.

Experience the sweaty palms and white-knuckles that come with single player mode, or share the fun with your friends in a party video game-like co-op experience!
