It’s almost October, and CASTLEVANIA certainly sounds good right about now. It’s been years since I’ve played a CASTLEVANIA Game, but the NES and SNES titles made a lifelong impact on me. Now, this news that Konami and Sumthing Digital have partnered for a series of soundtracks based on CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW has my interest renewed. Check out the details below…
Featuring the original musical score from the best-selling title in Castlevania franchise history, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition Soundtrack is scheduled for a physical release on October 29, 2013 to North American and European retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works, and simultaneously for digital download at iTunes, Amazon MP3 and other digital music sites. An extended version of the album, the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Director’s Cut, includes twenty previously unreleased tracks which will be available exclusively from www.Sumthing.com.
The partnership announced today also includes the upcoming album release for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate Original Soundtrack, available digitally on October 29 followed by a CD release in November, and the highly anticipated Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Original Soundtrack (Q1 2014).
Developed by Mercury Steam in association with Kojima Productions Studio, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (2010) is a dark and vivid new re-imagining of the Castlevania mythology. The epic original score, composed by Oscar Araujo and recorded with the 120-piece Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, received numerous accolades including 2011 ‘Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media’ from the International Film Music Critics Association.
