Here is an overview of the game, via the Microsoft Store:
This nostalgic but completely recreated world of stories comes to life before your eyes.
Inspired by both Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Ghouls‘ n Ghosts and for something completely new, Resurrection is a game that deserves its name.
A long time ago ...
In a distant land, our story begins, its beauty second to none. The knight, Arthur, and the princess were there, bathing in the midday sun ... but suddenly something went wrong, the town caught fire, a dark cloud appeared.
The shadow then extended its reach, to the god of the Umbral Tree. Its color faded, its vitality was consumed by the most malevolent powers. And with this chaos created, the Demon Lord appeared. While Arthur returned, the princess was kidnapped.
Arthur hastily put on his armor to save the princess by departing to Demon Realm.
Like its predecessors, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection uses simple controls. Use them to your advantage as you battle your way through bizarre and spooky stages, unique foes in this enchanting world brought to life with modern technology and philosophy. game design logic!
Ghosts ‘n Goblins, well, it's hard. Its indomitable difficulty has been a defining feature of the series, and Resurrection respects that legacy. You will die and you will die again, but you will dust yourself and get better with every effort as you learn more about your enemy and build more of your strategy. You will fight, but you will also lose yourself in glory when you finally win. It is Ghosts ‘n Goblins.
In Resurrection, Arthur can get 8 types of weapons, each with its own characteristics. Defeat your enemies with old favorites like Lance and Dagger, shoot shock waves with a Hammer to them, or send the Spiked Ball to the ground to destroy them! Use these - and more - to your advantage as you plan to advance past Demon Realm!
In addition to his large arsenal, Arthur can also learn a lot of magic and skills. Use Thunderstorm to unleash a hail of fire in 4 directions or learn Kitted Out to increase Arthur's storage space and bring more weapons. With tons of available options, make sure to make room for spells and skills in your strategy!
Make full use of Arthur's weapons, spells and skills as you overcome the Demon Realm challenges to bring the princess home safely.
In addition to a single player mode, which focuses on overcoming challenges alone, Arthur can be aided in his quest by the support character, Three Wise Guys. This style of gameplay creates an intense two-player co-op experience - a first in the series.
Connect two controllers to play with a friend. (Note: Local co-op feature only. Online play is not supported).
