Download Episode 46: “Castlevania vol. 2 – Handhelds” Here!

It’s our first show of October, and as promised 1 year ago this month, Mike and Ed are back with another podcast focusing on Castlevania!  This time, the guys tackle the portable titles, starting with the Game Boy and following the series lineage up to the 3DS. They discuss how the handheld soundtracks have evolved over the years, and of course play some of their favorite music from the games.  Dracula may be right around the corner, but we promise that this episode doesn’t “suck!”

    Hey i just found your podcast randomly and was going through your backlog. I wanted to give you a heads up on the dracula x chronicles song it is called cross your heart and the reason you never got to this track in the game is it is from the orginal rondo of blood for the pc engine. The reason its on the soundtrak for dracula x is you can unlock a full version of rondo of blood in english. You ever need a question anwsered about castlevania i would be happy to help. Love the show and keep up the good work.
