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.”

Monster Hunter movie prop master discusses the challenge of recreating the game's Greatsword

A monstrous prop

The weapons of the Monster Hunter film adaptation certainly look the part, but they were no easy task to create. Items like the Greatsword had to go through multiple iterations, with early results being way too heavy for a prop.

In an interview with Polygon, Monster Hunter prop master Kerry Van Lillienfeld reveals that the first version of the Greatsword he worked on ended up being between 66 and 88 pounds. This was simply too heavy and dangerous for star Tony Jaa to use. Lillienfeld had to go back to the drawing board to cook up something that worked, which led him to a “brittle biscuit foam” version.

This version of the Greatsword ended up being the one they used in the film, which you can see above. That said, this prop wasn't easy to wield either. While it came in much lighter than the original, it still weighed 33 pounds!

Monster Hunter Rise's director was worried that the game's Asian theme wouldn't be received well

Praise all around

In an internal Capcom interview, Monster Hunter Rise Director Yasunori Ichinose was asked about the fan reaction to the game's reveal. Ichinose was delighted with much of the commentary, but was particularly happy to see that the game's Asian theme was embraced.

This game has a very Japanese/Asian-flavored setting, so initially I was a bit worried what kind of response that would elicit, but people reacted very positively to this as well, so we’re all very satisfied. We want to create something new while maintaining the core Monster Hunter experience, so we hope you look forward to future information.
