Sound of Play: 220 – Castlevania special

In this special 220th Sound of Play, Leah Haydu and Michiel Kroder begin their journey through the Castlevania series, from the earliest entry on the Famicom to Symphony of the Night on the PlayStation. Join us again for a future Sound of Play where we will cover the latter half of the series!

What we aim to bring you with Sound of Play is a diverse sample of some of our favourite pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the years.
