Castlevania Music: RIDDLE COLLECTION



All the versions of Riddle

0:00 Akumajo Densetsu (1989) [Famicom/Wii]
0:55 Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse (1990) [NES/Wii]
1:56 Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (2008) [NDS]
3:45 Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth (2009) [Wii]

With the recent release of Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth for WiiWare, many classic themes are being modified and made more modern. Hopefully, Konami will continue remaking more classic games and themes the fans praise.

THESE TRACKS DO NOT BELONG TO ME.

Credit to the Castlevania music tracks/songs goes to KONAMI KuKeiHa CLUB, Sony Music Entertainment, and the following composers:

Kinuyo Yamashita, S.Terishima, Kenishi Matsubara, H. Funauchi, H. Maezawa, Jun Funahashi, Yukie Morimoto, Sotaro Tojima, Masanori Oodachi, Mikio Saitou, Michiru Yamane, Tomoya Tomita, Masahiko Kimura, Harumi Uekou, Rika Muranaka, T. Ohsono, J.

    I think that the only thing the Order of Ecclesia version did wrong was to eliminate the few notes that made up the intro for the other versions. It might have made a bit of a difference.

    Why does the Famicom version repeat the chorus twice, but the NES version only plays it once? It makes if feel less of a song.

    EDIT: I guess I don't know who I'm asking this too. I'm just thinking aloud.

    You're playing Rebirth, and you beat the first 2 phases of Dracula, which were "meh". Then…..he turns in to a giant mask, he says in a demonic voice "YOUR KIND CANNOT DEFEAT ME NOW", and then you hear this theme. It's simply amazing. He has such a massive amount of attacks, he's pissed! You eventually beat him, and then, you hear the short Theme of Simon Belmont Jingle. My 12 year old mind was blown.

    Although i find the Japanese version of Riddle intriguing, the version featured on Order Of Ecclesia incites a sense of terror.

    i just finished playing OoE and to be honest, THIS song was the only one that was sorta like a earworm to me…all the other songs i have forgotten about already…….now i learn that this piece is a REMAKE….shows how amazing the old tunes have been and will always be 🙂

    maybe its just because i had to concentrate so much in the Training Hall, and my brain captured the melody even more so 😀

    Seems like there are a few OoE Riddle haters, I think it's a decent mix. The NES version will always be my favorite though, I grew up with it, it's got a special place in my heart, a place full of rage and screaming because of how fuckin' hard that stage is.

    Like how it's used in the Adventure Rebirth as the final boss battle against Dracula.

    since the original composer left and since the same studio that did lords of shadows is doing the 3ds title, i have few hope for what the soundtrack will sound like.
    they will probably keep the "cliche cinematic style of music" (which is good, but not in the castlevania universe)

    if they do keep using that same style of music, at least re-arrange the classic themes in that way

    I persoanlly love the OOE because it's jazzy. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. State yours if you wish, but please don't act like yours is the only one that counts. Thank you everyone.

    @Pixelnatoru exactly. Why are there so many idiots on youtube that think their opinion overrides others. (don't get me wrong I'm not saying that your opinions are wrong just don't say I'M RIGHT YOU'RE WRONG SO SHUT UP AND GO AWAY accept it instead)

    Every one of these collections I listen to, it's all good and I love the music and then ReBirth comes along and SHITS on me. I don't know what it is but every song that's in that game is not as good as other versions of itself.

    It's beyond me how anybody prefers the NES version of CV3 after hearing the Famicom version with the VRC6 channels. That's like saying you prefer to hear Beethoven's Ninth played on the demo of a Casio keyboard at the mall. There's just no comparison. What's better about having a bastardized version of a tune? Having said that, I can appreciate the more minimalist sound of the NES versions, but you're only hearing half of the music.
    As far as the later games' renditions of the tunes, ehh…I t

    if we think about it :
    game boy : castlevania adventure, Castlevania adventure 2 , castlevania legends (total 3)
    Game boy advance : Circle of the moon, Harmony of dissonance, Aria of sorrow (total 3)
    DS : Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin, Order Of ecclesia (total 3)
    Nintendo 3DS = next castlevania game ?
    Lets hope so.. and by the way, this time do the freaking song more like the original! : D

    @scrimpeh Well its pretty butchered imo, the bass line is messed up, that awsome synth sound that peaks up and down is almost completely inaudible, the intro isnt as epic but WORST of all it just sounds too upbeat, almost carnival-like, to me (these comparisons made to the CV3 version)

    @Jazzypants2007 So Castlevania Adventure Rebirth = Not so great but better than Order of Ecclesia version?

    @MysteryEzekude It's not fantastic, but it's not the version from Order of Ecclesia either. This one would be the middle ground.

    Dude, don't even go there. Classic is definitly the mark of a true fan. Id rather play a hard and fun game, than a sissy game that you can take20 billion hits and still live.

    Oh sure, because the game with the ridiculously predicable bosses and the lack of exploration is the more Pro one
