It’s time 4 entry number 4 of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 4! I present: Belmonts vs Dracula!
This rivalry spans many generations on one side…and one vampire on the other side. Now, Dracula has been slain in countless of his incarnations and not only by the Belmont clan. But if you want the job done right, you call a Belmont. They have slain Dracula’s incarnations for centuries after all – not always without complications.
For the song, I decided to let Simon (Castlevania I, II, IV and quite a few more), Trevor (Castlevania III) and Richter (Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night) represent the Belmont clan.
For the songs, I went with the most iconic tunes – mostly the first stage theme of the classic games, which often serve as the character’s theme – namely Vampire Killer (Castlevania), Bloody Tears (Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest), Beginning (Castlevania III), Theme of Simon Belmont (Super Castlevania IV), Divine Bloodlines (Castlevania: Rondo of Blood) and Dance of Illusions (the Castlevania: Circle of the Moon version) for Dracula.
So let’s here it:Belmonts vs Dracula (299 downloads)
But what is a man? One that also watches the video:
I initially wanted to only include the themes from the four classic Castlevania games, when I realized, that I only used the themes of Simon Belmont and Trevor Belmont. I wasn’t aware that he was actually the protagonist of 3 of the first 4 games! So I decided to add Divine Bloodlines too – Richter is one of my favorite Belmonts anyway~
The next entry of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 4 will be the 5th and final one – unless we get some bonus songs again? Who knows! If everything goes according to plan, I’ll see you again in 2 weeks!
