Amazing wallpaper from the Japanese Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia website. Also found at the site: a new soundtrack sample, from the track “Scorched Earth of Solemnity.” It sounds very PC Engine-esque to me, while also being reminiscent of the Symphony of the Night soundtrack.
Speaking of the soundtrack, a bit of disappointing news. The Castlevania Dungeon reports that “Apparently Gamestop is giving away codes for soundtrack downloads (boo), and rumors about Gamecrazy giving away actual CDs seem to be unsubstantiated.” So there goes my plan of coveting an artifact.
[Update: some GoNintendo readers report receiving for-real CDs! So… yay, maybe?]
