Knights QUEST 16: Requiem of Play: Castlevania music – part 2 of 2

castlevania music podcast retrogamepapa requiem of play

Whipping up to the end.

Peter (Retrogamepapa), together with Michiel (HitP Studio, Video Wizards pod) and special guest Leah Haydu (Cane & Rinse, Character Issues podcast), continue with the Castlevania games music in this second part of the Requiem of Play special. This quest is once again filled with lots of banging tunes, soothing melodies and rightout beautiful music. Here they start with a mobile game, Castlevania: Order of Shadows and go through several Nintendo DS titles, Lords of Shadow games and more, to eventually finish with Grimoire of Souls, also a mobile title, coincidentally!

In the past there was a video game music podcast called Sound of Play. Episode 220 was all about Castlevania music, which you can check out here: https://caneandrinse.com/sop-castlevania-special/. Michiel Kroder and Leah Haydu went through the Castlevania games by release date, starting with picking music from the first Castlevania (1986-87) and finishing with Symphony of the Night (1997) and Castlevania Legends (1997-98). Peter (Retrogamepapa) kicks this quest off by starting with two Symphony of the Night tracks of his picking, before we travel further on. We then go through Castlevania 64, Circle of the Moon, Aria of Sorrow and all the other Castlevania titles up until Portrait of Ruin (2006).

With this second Requiem of Play we’ve now covered all Castlevania games. Like stated before: basically there’s in the end three Castlevania music podcast episodes, counting also the Sound of Play one. There will be some Castlevania music in future podcasts, because it’s awesome.

Retrogamepapa’s Addendum: I always love recording podcasts, but this was kind of a special one. It was so much fun to do because of many things. I love music, I love Castlevania and Leah was an excellent and very entertaining guest to have. It’s also a nice thing to have been able to pick up the torch a bit from the Sound of Play podcast. Maybe we’ll do this again some other time, or perhaps it’s a good idea to do something regular with it.
