With only a week until launch, you wouldn't expect Capcom to have further reveals for Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection, but last night's Nintendo Direct told us otherwise. For the first time in Ghosts ’n Goblins history, Resurrection is introducing a co-op mode.

Available locally for two players, Arthur can be assisted by one of three supporting characters: Barry provides barriers for defence, Kerry offers transportation by carrying Arthur through danger, whilst Archie creates bridges to cross.

If you're interested in learning more, game director Tokuro Fujiwara recently revealed some insights into Resurrection's development, explaining everything from art style to Arthur's choice of underwear. You can pre-order it now for £24.99 / $29.99 / €29,99.

Excited to try co-op in Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection? Let us know in the comments.
