It's too late for Christmas 2009, but that special Castlevania fan in your life may appreciate it for Christmas 2010. "It" being a Castlevania series soundtrack collection coming in at a crazy 19 discs.
Going on sale next March, the box set will retail for ¥21,000. Which in US dollars is $232. That's a lot, but then, remember, it's on 19 discs. Break that up and it's a steal, at $US12.20 a disc!
Sadly, there's no pics of the sure-to-be-amazing box the collection will come on, but we do know that some of the soundtracks featured include the MSX2 version of the original Castlevania, Castlevania Legends, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia and the Saturn version of Symphony of the Night.
There are 18 discs worth of soundtrack, the 19th disc being a DVD containing interviews and some behind-the-scenes footage of the music being recorded. 悪魔城ドラキュラ Best Music Collection BOX [Amazon, via Original Sound Version]
