STAGE 51: Castlevania (Part 3)

A Dark shadow looms over the land.
Horrid creations of of the living dead , the supernatural and the unexplainable walk amongst us …..Monsters that fill our hearts and minds with sheer terror.

But in this darkness, a hero returns.
A whip-wielding vampire hunter, dedicating his life for a noble cause.

A legacy created through hellish life-threatening encounters set in gothic victorian backdrops.

A never-ending quest to fight back the legions of hell and deliver the world from the clutches of the immortal Count Dracula.

an enduring staple of videogame royalty.
This IS CastleVania…..

The series that by many consider an institution in gaming, spawning almost 40 entries on various consoles spanning 30 years.

Good or bad, one of Castlevania’s most consistent qualities has been its music, a collection of diverse and iconic songs that have a sound all their own.

And it is with that , that this stage of the Retro VGM Revival Hour walks into the familiar haunting corridors of castle Dracula to honor the amazing music from the castlevania game series.
