If I had to buy that collection I'd go with Castlevania black. It's tight to be retro  8)

As much as I want to support the official release... that's over $256... I think I may have to wait and pray this ends up on the torrent networks lads.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature.

You get a bonus disc if you buy both sets on Konamistyle. The bonus disc seems to be a reprint of MIDI Power Pro 6 with additional tracks, whatever that means.

At least they're not vinyls with CD rips on them. They're discs with CD rips on them. I can play them on my DVD player and my portable CD player.

More seriously, who knows which discs are straight ports of older releases and which discs are new recordings. I guess at least the new games like LoD and Legends will be new and hopefully clean recordings with proper beginnings, loops and fade-outs.

This is also the first CV-related thing sold by Konami I'm buying after 2010's BEST MUSIC COLLECTIONS BOX, woah 11 years ago. That one was 21,000 yen with 18 CD and a DVD. This one's 28,600 yen with 26 CD.

Lol, I'm in a similar situation. I bought the previous collection box and haven't bought any CV collectibles for years now. I'm super tempted to get this one and I'm not even sure why.

Well if either of you guys get it, upload it somewhere for us poor scrubs who can only WISH we could field that much money.

Cool to see Dracula XX get an official OST finally. Are the soundtracks complete this time, unlike the previous box where they omitted tracks? Wouldn't be surprised if CV1–4 and the Game Boy games are just the Dracula Best super reverby mixes all over again.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

So far it seems EVERYTHING will be a reprint from an existing past release, except those tracks that have never been released like Legends, LoD and XX. For example, Dracula X (PCE) will be from the Dracula X Chronicles release (the 2nd disc).

It's just one more cash grab. I also thought they might have been crazy enough to re-record everything properly once and for all, how stupid was I.

It's most likely reprints but they have complete OSTs this time. Since single OSTs sell for hundreds of bucks individually on eBay and other marketplaces, I'd rather pay $250 once and get done with it, even if that means having a few ones in double. Now to wait until December.

Amazon jp sells them separately but they have a free 24x24cm mega CD jacket as a limited edition bonus.
here's the words to put on the search bar:
【Amazon.co.jp限定】ミュージック フロム 悪魔城ドラキュラ 赤 (メガジャケ付)
【Amazon.co.jp限定】ミュージック フロム 悪魔城ドラキュラ 黒 (メガジャケ付)

I do hope they bring this across the pod, even if only through a site like limited run games or something. I want it but I'm leery of trying to import it.

Anyone know the cheapest/beat way to get the bonus disc? I'm contemplating selling all my originals (some of which are boots) for this. Might be worth it just to get the CDs officially.
