Even though Konami has abandoned making video Games we at least still have the great music from the games and I am buying all the Castlevania records expected to come out.
Mondo announced a new partnership this week with the The-Once-Great-Publisher-That-Must-Not-Be-Named that’ll bring several of gaming’s most aurally accomplished franchises to vinyl. There’ll be licensed prints and collectibles too, but we’re talking about a vinyl release of the OSTs for Castlevania, Silent Hill and Contra here.
Even in the post-Silent Hills world we currently live in, that’s exciting.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2016 in July, Mondo will unveil their limited edition vinyl for the 1986 Castlevania, with artwork by renowned comic artist Becky Cloonan. They’ll also show off a limited edition polystone statue inspired by Ayami Kojima’s work on Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
There’s plenty more coming later. Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Super Castlevania IV and Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night will all get vinyl releases, complete with original artwork for each. Silent Hill and Contra will get the same treatment, eventually.
