It seems, with the addition of a skill tree and the heavy memorization requirement, that the game is a bit like a rogue like, with the notable exception of randomly generated levels. That kind of gameplay makes it a hard pass for me, though.

If he didn’t move so damn slow I’d be all in on this. Probably grab it when it goes on sale though.

Looks just as fun as the original….which isn't fun at all. People that like this game are masochists.

Me: (As Jon's luscious baritone sends a shiver of pleasure up my spine) Yes, I suppose I will watch the whole video.

Will have to pick this one up. Love the one on SNES. And I really like the art direction of this one, reminds me of saturday morning cartoons.

Glad to hear it is so approachable for casuals. Sounds like it has something for everyone, even the hardcore fans like me. As a longtime fan and one of the few people that actually beat the original and punishing Ghosts 'n Goblins and Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts on the NES and SNES as a kid, I can't wait to pick this up. Thanks for the in depth review guys!

The Dark Souls of 2D Platformers.
Or should I say Dark Souls is the Ghosts 'n Goblins of 3D Action RPGs?

Anyone else here after GameSpot gave the game a 4/10 and called it unplayable?

As a man who's tackled this series and defeat it even on the hardest of settings, I still appreciate the fact this game has options. I pre-ordered it, and though there's no physical release now, I'm more than willing to buy this game physically as well. Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts is one of my all-time favorite games from the '90s. It does require a lot of practice, and I believe the reason why this series was always more popular in Japan is because the level of discipline there as compared to the west, is pretty large a margin. This game series was never meant to hold your hand, but to be a challenge. Though I say that, I'm fully excited to see how overpowered you can become with the magic and on lower difficulties. I'm betting it'll be fun! Let alone the fact you can play multiplayer on this game, which is quite cool, even if it seems like a kind of gimmick. I'd have preferred the second player to have been a second knight to be honest, but I'm fine with this nonetheless: due to the fact this series was in desperate need of multiplayer long ago.

Perhaps Resurrection will be the definitive game of the series? I do think it's a shame a lot of folks wrote this game off already because of the art style. It honestly looks fantastic! Finally, the series looks like what it should've been from the start… A fairytale storybook.

I wasn't sure about the art style before, but seeing I run here at 60fps (was it 30 in the trailers or am I crazy?) I think it looks absolutely beautiful

Not gonna lie, Capcom is on a better roll when it comes to Switch games than Nintendo themselves. Ghost n Goblins, two Monster Hunter titles and some leaked titles that I don't want to spoil. Looks like I'm getting all of them this year.

If only Battletoads had this kind of reboot, don't get me wrong, the Battletoads 2020 game is pretty good, but I just wish it had this much flare to it.

Sigh, I have no money but I really, really want this. One of my biggest gaming achievements (which gives me bragging rights, and so I'm currently using said rights) was beating Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts for SNES on Expert difficulty. The feeling of being FREAKIN' AWESOME is something I rarely feel in games and I want to feel it again

Am I the only one who actually liked the visuals when it was first shown? I feel like everyone immediately hated on them but it looks good imo

Those flash-style graphics are ugly as fuck though. Pixels or gfto

I gotta say, no option for limited lives does kill my interest for this game significantly. Not really for difficulty reasons. Honestly, i'd prefer a much easier game than this but with limited lives. Like Super Ghouls & Ghosts, I guess. Run-based games that give you a causal chain that you can follow from the beginning to the very end is just way more engaging than a bunch of unrelated 30-second vignettes, no matter how hard they make them. Unfortunately, most run-based games nowadays go all in on randomization, meaning good level design is basically impossible. This could have filled a woefully underserved niche as a proper new modern arcade game, but I guess I'll just go play some Super Ghouls & Ghosts.

I can't remember where I saw this, but Arthur has the most imbalanced armour in the world. It can withstand anything, an atomic bomb could go off near it and Arthur will be fine. However, it can only do this once.

Might have to pick this up at some point, it looks really interesting. The art style reminds me of the Rock of Ages cutscenes.

"It's time to stop worrying about the artstyle .. it looks gorgeous", mate get your eyes checked it looks fucking awful. Not my kind of thing granted but I would say it looks cheap and terrible vOv not sure where you get off spouting such nonsense, you can't possibly believe what you are saying it's that bad. I can draw better than that and so could a lot of teenagers.
