Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection Review
This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, the next generation of hosts, Cameron Daxon, Marc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill pay tribute to Nintendo’s last great handheld and discuss all things arcades with Capcom Arcade Stadium and Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection. But before they dive into Capcom’s latest offerings on Switch, the gang looks back to the past to celebrate ten years of the Nintendo 3DS. The hosts exchange notes about their experience with the Nintendo’s plucky three-dimensional handheld: whether you first encountered the console in its initial run or its later 2D iterations, there is so much to celebrate when it comes to the platform’s robust library and innovative design.
In the main event, Marc breaks down everything there is to know about the free-to-start Capcom Arcade Stadium. With love and care put into its presentation plus a wide array of packs of games to purchase, Capcom’s latest retro effort provides plenty for fans of gaming history to appreciate – even if the collection represents a grand total of three genres. Next up, Cameron and Campbell commiserate in the agonizing brutality of Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection, detailing everything that makes this retro reboot just as uncompromisingly challenging as the arcade classics before it. The game asks challenging questions: what defines “fair” gameplay? How much can suffering be “fun”? Closing things out, the boys shine an indie spotlight on Castle Kong, a Donkey Kong spiritual successor that might just be the best way to get rich quick on Switch.
