Konami Famicom Music Memorial Best Vol. 3
Catalog #: KICA-1023
Release date: 1991
Price: 1500 yen
This is a rather old CD that has music from Boku Dracula-kun (Kid Dracula), Ai Senshi Nicol (Love Soldier Nicol) and Wai Wai World 2, three Konami Famicom games that were never released in the US.
All of the Kid Dracula tracks are available to download. Of note is the second track (Go! Go! At The Castle) which is a rather fun remix of "Beginning" from Castlevania. "Hop! Step! Above the Clouds" is also the tune used for Kid Dracula's theme in Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius.
Other than these tracks, there's no real relation to Castlevania or other games - it's just silly NES music, basically. Most of it is fairly forgettable, to be perfectly honest, but it's not bad.
Though not Castlevania related, Ai Senshi Nicol has rather OK music too - I'm not remotely familiar with the game, but it seemed pretty good.
Wai Wai World 2 has a very good soundtrack, consisting of music from various older Konami games slightly redone. I've included the Castlevania medley track, which is very cool indeed. This is easily the best collection of music on the CD.
Please note that I translated the tracklist myself. Most of them are pretty accurate, but a few I was kinda lost on ("Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "Robo Robo Battle" are wrong, I can tell you that...and I have NO idea what a "sucharaka" is.) Excuse these, please.
Tracks 1-10 from Boku Dracula-kun
Tracks 11-17 from Ai Senshi Nicol
Tracks 18-24 from Wai Wai World 2: SOS! Parsley Castle
