Mondo is proud to present the premiere physical release of the soundtrack to the 1988 NES version of the classic game that started it all: METAL GEAR.
Retroactively considered unofficial by both the game's creator and fans, the American release of METAL GEAR is one of the few black sheep of the legacy franchise. But for some it was the entry point to one of the most essential game series of all time. And due to the technical limitations of the system itself, the soundtrack to the NES version differs from the MSX2 version, solidifying it as a unique, if flawed departure from the developers original intent.
This premiere physical release of the soundtrack is cut at 45RPM, and features all new original artwork by Paul Mann, this limited-edition release is pressed on heavyweight split colored vinyl, and strictly limited to 1,000 copies.
You'll be able to pick up this album on Mondo's official website this Wednesday. Preorders go live at noon CT.

Konami has released an update for Contra Rogue Corps that is filled with new content. Players can now take advantage of the added Hardcore Mission, two new Carnage League stages, new weapons, new B.A.Ds, and more. Season Pass holders will also get The Gentleman Beetle Pack content. Check out multiple videos showcasing the new content below.
The Nordic branch of Netflix put out a tweet earlier today that shared release dates for some upcoming titles on their service, and mentioned among the entertainment was Castlevania's third season. The tweet stated that the next season would launch on Dec. 1st, 2019, but there's only one problem. Netflix Nordic has since deleted the entire tweet, so we have no idea if the info was correct or not! Hopefully we get another confirmation on the release date soon.
UPDATE - Samuel Deats, director of the Castlevania Netrflix series, has shot down the date by saying, “HAH, that’s news to me and would certainly be scary considering we’re still working on the last episode of the season.”
Is it finally time for the Mystical Ninja to return? Konami has filed a new trademark for Goemon in Japan, and it applies to various “game programs” and “game software.” We haven't seen a new Goemon game since all the way back in 2005, and that one wasn't even localized. Let's hope that if a new title is in the works, it gets a worldwide release.
Konami has announced plans to bring Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution with them to Jump Festa 2020, which is taking place on Dec. 21st and 22nd, 2019 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. It seems this will just be a standard hands-on demo for the event.
