A Smashing Castlevania Halloween Musical Moment
October 31, 2018
Halloween at Press The Buttons means spending a moment appreciating Konami's Castlevania franchise which is enjoying a resurgence thanks to the recently released Castlevania Requiem compilation and, better still, appearances from Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont along with a host of Castlevania elements in Nintendo's upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Composers lined up for a chance to rearrange the franchise's most famous and beloved music and the official Smash Bros. website has been offering sample clips over the past few weeks. ""Lost Painting" from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night will appear in Smash, as will a medley of tunes from Castlevania II: Simon's Quest: "Bloody Tears" and the mansion theme "Monster Dance". At long last, it's a great time to be a Castlevania fan again!
