Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection launched on Nintendo Switch back on 25th February, but now more people can get in on the brutally hard fun thanks to the game launching on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today.

“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,” reads the press release sent to us by Capcom.

Capcom, which is the developer and publisher for the game, points out that there are multiple difficulty modes available for new players. We have to imagine that this will also be a nice sight to see for returning players who will have flashbacks to the difficulty of the original game.

There’s also the “Page” allowing for unlimited respawns as the lives system is still kept intact here.

For those who want some help along the way co-op is available. There’s a nice feature on the official PlayStation Blog about the co-op which also features some behind the scenes art for those interested.

Pricing for Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is rather steep. As a reminder the local price on the Nintendo eShop for the game is R539. Usually for games in South Africa the eShop is the most expensive place to get games and other stores are cheaper, but that isn’t the case here.

Steam, the PlayStation Store and the Microsoft Store all have the game available for sale right now for the same price as the eShop – R539. This is one of the rare times the infamous Switch tax doesn’t rear its ugly head but it’s a bitter pill to swallow as the US price of the game is $29.99, which converts to R411.02 at the time of writing.

If you want to see the game in action there’s multiple trailers and reviews available from the Switch launch, so we recommend this video by Dunkey which shows off some of the insanity here.
