Ghosts ‘n Goblins: Resurrection
One of the most infamously difficult platformers of all time is back with a brand new coat of paint. Arthur is back in Ghosts ‘n Goblins: Resurrection to slay demons and save Princess Prin-Prin. Despite its classic roots, this game hasn’t gotten much attention and may end up being a sleeper hit in 2021.
It appears that much of Resurrection is still fairly similar to past titles in the sense that you play as an armor-clad Arthur equipped with lances.
However, there is so much that’s new in the reveal trailer. There are multiple new power-ups, we see the introduction of screen-clearing attacks, and now Arthur can take more than two hits before kicking the bucket. Best of all, the new art completely reimagines the sprites from the original in a beautiful hand-drawn style.
This game looks fantastic, but with it currently flying under the radar, it could easily be 2021 sleeper hit with old-school gaming fans.
