Castlevania’, ‘Silent Hill’ Getting Vinyl Release

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.

RIP Admiral Ackbar

RIP Admiral Ackbar

Sad news as the Force Awakens comes out on blu-ray and dvd today.

Erik Bauersfeld, who died Sunday at the age of 93, wasn’t a household name. But his voice was famous — thanks to three little words delivered by a bulging-eyed, amphibious rebel commander Admiral Ackbar. He was also the voice of Bib Fortuna the alien we meet at the beginning of Return of the Jedi in Jabba’s Palace> Erik returned to voice the Admiral in last years The Force Awakens.

Admiral Ackbar was written as a bit part — a handful of lines in Return of the Jedi, most of them rather defeated. “Prepare to retreat,” “we have no choice, “take evasive action, “we won’t last long!”

And then a futile utterance — pointing out, too late, what Lando Calrissian had already realized. “It’s a trap!”
