Castlevania is one of Konami’s oldest classical video game franchises that has gone through several changes over the years. Stalker, a piece that was composed by Michiru Yamane for Castlevania: Bloodlines, which holds many similar traits to Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, is an iconic track among Castlevania fans and Castlevania musicians. Castlevania: Bloodlines was originally released to the Sega Genesis console in 1994, and has been ported to other consoles since then.
Stalker was composed by Castlevania series composer Michiru Yamane. For Castlevania: Bloodlines, Yamane tried to match an orchestral sound with a pop-like feel for the game, which was something that she had not done before. Castlevania: Bloodlines was also one of the first Castlevania games to contain both anime-style drawings and cutscenes.
Stalker plays many times in Castlevania: Bloodlines when you are against Death, the grim reaper who has taken the form of a cloaked figure. Castlevania: Bloodlines was originally released in 1994 and has been ported to multiple platforms since then.
Stalker is a very dynamic piece, utilizing heavy instance changes and key changes. It begins in the key of D minor, moves briefly into A flat major for its bridge section, jumps back down to A minor, then finishes out in D major. Stalker features explosive dynamic changes that are sure to keep its listeners enthralled.
This piece of Castlevania sheet music is written for the sole purpose of piano practice and improvisation. Since Castlevania: Bloodlines has never been officially released on any computer or video game console with sheet music included, this Castlevania – Stalker piano sheet is completely unofficial.
