Last week, Mondo tweeted a mixtape featuring snippets from their planned future vinyl releases, which included the introduction to the original Castlevania. When asked, they confirmed the game’s soundtrack was indeed one of the titles on the list to have an EP pressed, much to the elation of myself and other fans. Then yesterday, a new tweet and Mashable post was made regarding the soundtrack among other things.

There’s more to come from Mondo’s Konami partnership. In July, San Diego Comic-Con attendees will be able to purchase a limited edition vinyl pressing of the original Castlevania soundtrack (featuring art by Cloonan) and a statue inspired by Ayami Kojima’s art from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Fans can expect additional soundtrack releases on vinyl at later dates, for Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Super Castlevania IV and Symphony of the Night. Vinyl soundtracks for Contra(!!) and Silent Hill are also coming. (via Mashable)

The referencing of not just the original Castlevania soundtrack coming to vinyl, but mentioning future releases of other Castlevania series as well as Contra and Silent Hill soundtracks is a huge deal. I contacted Mondo regarding the original Castlevania release, asking the question on some people’s minds about if the vinyl would only be sold at the comic-con.

The soundtrack for Castlevania will be available at SDCC and then will go online at a later date for sale to the general public. It’s all part of the limited edition run, they will just sell remaining copies post-SDCC. – Mondo PR

So rejoice, fellow Castlevania fans! We will soon be receiving our beloved series’ soundtracks released to smooth vinyl format.
