Annual Castlevania Halloween Moment Goes To The Arcade

Castlevania: The ArcadeEvery Halloween here at Press The Buttons we take a moment to enjoy some Castlevania lore.  This year's experience comes from an obscure 2009 Castlevania arcade game released only in Japan.  Structured as a first-person rail shooter, Castlevania: The Arcade uses a special remote-style controller to enable up to two players to whip-shoot onscreen enemies.  The best thing about the game has to be the amazing soundtrack which is comprised of remixed arrangements of classic songs from the original Castlevania as well as Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, and the famed Castlevania: Rondo of Blood for the PC Engine.  Most of the songs have been uploaded to YouTube in extended forms, so sit back, turn out the lights, and enjoy some of the best music that the Castlevania franchise has to offer. I'm starting you off with "Dance of Illusions", but click on the Playlist button in the embedded player to get to other familiar tracks such as "Vampire Killer", "Beginning", "Wicked Child", "Bloody Tears", and "Poison Mind".
