From this, it emerged, among other things, that Capcom could work on a new “Ghosts ‘N Goblins adventure. A new trademark protection entry from Capcom ensures fresh speculation in this direction.
A corresponding entry at the US Patent and Trademark Office shows that Capcom decided to renew the trademark protection on Ghosts ‘N Goblins. The updated trademark protection does not provide any further details. However, in the big leak a few days ago it was pointed out that the new title will be released exclusively for Nintendo Switch in February 2021.
