Game Informer Video - Ghosts 'N Goblins: Resurrection gameplay footage

Ghosts 'N Goblins: Resurrection is Capcom's latest release in the classic 2D action series, bringing back Director Tokuro Fujiwara to lead the charge in reviving a 35-year-long franchise that players first discovered on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Just like the older releases, the game doesn't hold any punches when it comes to delivering a challenging gameplay experience, and that's exactly why Editor-in-Chief Andrew Reiner and Senior Editor Jeff Cork forced me to jump into the proverbial lion's den to try my hand at beating the game's first boss. I died over twenty times in this 36-minute video, but the rest of the crew assured me that my suffering was entertaining for them.

Don't feel bad, even Ghosts ‘n Goblins' director can't beat the NES version

The shining example of NES tough

Most titles tied to the Ghosts ‘n Goblins franchise are known for insane difficulty, but there might not be a more punishing version than the NES port. That wasn't by accident either. In an interview with Game Informer, series director Tokuro Fujiwara discusses the plans to crank up the difficulty for the home port, which led to him being unable to beat the game all these years later.

“The arcade version had a reputation for being difficult, but there was a demand to make the NES version even harder since it was thought the game would be too easy for those who already played it at the arcade. We thought, ‘OK, let’s make it a little harder’ but as we made further and further adjustments, it ended up becoming the hardest game in the series. To this day, I don’t even have the confidence to beat the NES version of Ghosts ‘n Goblins. But, if you have the chance, please give it a shot and experience the ultimate difficulty.”
