Out Today: Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection launches for PlayStation 4

By Jack Taylor – 1 June 2021

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection, the newest entry in a series spanning more than 30 years, is now available for PlayStation 4.

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is the latest game in Capcom's Ghosts 'n Goblins series, which made its debut way back in 1985. The newest entry was released for Nintendo Switch back in February, and PlayStation fans can now get their hands on it from the PlayStation Store.

Capcom's description of the game follows. A launch trailer can be viewed above.

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is a modern reboot of the legendary Ghosts 'n Goblins series, featuring beautiful storybook-like graphics and action platforming gameplay. Players guide the brave knight Arthur as he battles his way through whimsical horror theme park-like stages on his quest to rescue the princess from the treacherous Demon Lord.

New knights, fear not; Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection offers several features and modes to aid players on their journey through this demonic fantasy world. Players start off by selecting from one of three difficulties: Squire, Knight and Legend. A special Page mode is also available, granting new players (or knights in need of a little help) the ability to continuously respawn with unlimited lives. Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection also features the mystical Umbral Tree, which allows Arthur to learn and upgrade a variety of magic spells and skills. With various weapons, magic and skills available, it's up to each player to determine their unique play style as they make their way through the Demon Realm.

Adventurous knights can also band together in the two-player local co-op mode. The second player assists Arthur as one of three supporting characters: Barry, who creates barriers for protection; Kerry, who carries Arthur through danger; and Archie, who creates bridges to cross. The supporting player can switch between these characters to help Arthur defeat ghoulish enemies and overcome any unexpected obstacles.
