Mondo reprints Castlevania: Symphony of the Night double vinyl

Record label Mondo in Austin has reprinted Michiru Yamane's Castlevania: Symphony of the Night soundtrack on two discs, pressed to recycled eco vinyl, shipping from distributor Fangamer in Tucson.

Developed by Konami for the Sony PlayStation in 1997 and later ported to the Sega Saturn, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night features scenario writing and design by Koji Igarashi. Symphony's focus on exploration helped define the "Metroidvania" genre, as acquiring new abilities allowed Alucard to access uncharted locations on the castle map.

The story of Symphony of the Night directly follows the events of Rondo of Blood for PC Engine CD. When Dracula's mansion unexpectedly materializes from out of the ether, the half-human son of Dracula follows vampire hunter Richter Belmont onto the castle grounds and encounters Maria Renard, the maiden rescued by the Belmont clan years earlier.

Both the original Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night are included in the PlayStation 4 exclusive Castlevania Requiem. Yamane's influential music score is streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music Unlimited.

From the product page:
'Castlevania: Rondo of Blood', first released in 1993 and 'Castlevania: Symphony of the Night', first released in 1997 are now available in one combined package for the PS4...Experience two of the greatest games from the famous Castlevania series.
