Weird flex including Boku Dracula-kun but ok

 

Not really, it's a great opportunity. Boku Dracula-Kun never was ported, and was only sort-of "remade" for the Gameboy as Kid Dracula. (much in the same way Rondo was sort-of "remade" for SNES as Dracula X) Lots of the same elements and stages, but still different enough to be considered separate. I consider it a great trade-out for Dracula X for this first collection.

 

I figured the rest were just no-brainers.

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

I wasn't suggesting that it isn't unique. I just don't think anyone was expecting or hoping for it.

I wonder if it's going to be buggy.

So Konami dumped a ton of Castlevania OSTs on Spotify.

 

Link to Library

 

The current listing of game soundtracks are:

 

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Castlevania: 64
Castlevania: Chronicles
Castlevania: Circle of the Moon/Castlevania:Harmony of Dissonance dual-release
Castlevania: Lament of Innocence
Castlevania: Curse of Darkness
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow/ Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow dual-release
Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles
Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
Castlevania: Judgment
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

 

No idea why they decided to make the artist's name pretty much un-searchable in the US, and this isn't everything, but it's a sizable amount and a big step towards having the series music easily accessible. Likely the timing is due to the upcoming release of the Anniversary Collection, which is a good call. :wub:

Looks like the Japanese versions WILL be included as a free post-launch update.

Spotify has gotten so much better for game music over the last 6 months, it’s great. I’m not sure how long they are going to maintain the 3DS eshop but Curse of the Moon is a great port on there. Would pick it up if you had the means while there’s still time..

That article makes me mad because Akumajou Densetsu isn't a Famicom Disk System game and I'm a nitpicky nerd.

Also the implication that the FDS version of Simon's Quest is worth listening to. It's such a disappoinment.

You weren't the only one nitpicking that article.

 

 

In other news, started playing the Castlevania Anniversary Collection last night on PS4. Started with Bloodlines, which honestly feels pretty damn good and seems like a solid port/ROM overall. Been hearing mixed reviews of the rest of the games in the collection, including word that the ROM they used for CV1 is the "PRG0" that has a bug that causes sprite overload if you use triple-shot and a subweapon during the Death fight and freezes the game. They also did not include the ability to re-map button layout, which is something I hope they patch.

 

Will be playing/streaming more this weekend to continue check things out. Loving the History Book inclusion though, especially for the concept and design sketches they included for each game; some of which I've never seen before. Looking forward to archiving them.

Those concept and design sketches are great, flipped through the gallery a little last night. Got it on Switch, didn’t see it up on PS store last night . Maybe it was a region thing idk..
