If you've played any of the Castlevania games over the past 27 years, one of the best things about the games are their soundtracks.  Heck, I actually took the time a while back to hunt down the soundtracks for the three NES games.  However, Konami has recently announced a partnership with Sumthing Else Music to bring official soundtracks to three recent Castlevania games in both digital and physical forms.

Both Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate will be getting soundtracks on October 29th, and Lords of Shadow 2 will get its soundtrack sometime in the first quarter of 2014.  In addition, the Lords of Shadow soundtrack will have two versions: an "Ultimate Edition" as well as an "Extended Cut" that has twenty unreleased tracks.  These albums will be available in North American and European retail outlets as well as through iTunes, Amazon MP3, and other digital music sites.
