Rhythm Encounter 95 – Castlevania: Rhythm of the Night

Rhythm Encounter 095 Castlevania

While our friends at Retro Encounter just wrapped a month of graphic adventures — and by extension, a month of games featuring wolves — we wanted to record a Halloween-appropriate episode. The gothic halls of Dracula’s Castle are a popular spot for spooky adventure, and the Castlevania series is known for its excellent music. The Castlevania titles that RPGFan covers began with the legendary Symphony of the Night, and in many of our choices today, are scored by the talented Michiru Yamane. Join us for some vampire killing tunes, and we promise, no tricks are in store for you today; only treats.

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Michael Sollosi, Wes Iliff; Edited by Jono Logan
