Mega Ran, everyone's favorite Philly rapper not named Will Smith, started a new project earlier this year called Time and Space. On the second Tuesday of each month, he will release a short EP of hip hop arrangements that sample music from games fans have specifically requested. Someone asks for Gitaroo Man? Gosh darnit, they're gonna get a Gitaroo Man song!

Though the full albums complete with instrumental bonuses cost a few bucks, Ran has been gracious enough to provide Dtoid with site-exclusive versions for free. First there was January's release led by the Battletoads pause beat, then there was last month's set featuring the rarely covered Beyond Good & Evil. Now we bring you Time and Space: Mach's Principle, which spreads the Castlevania love and invites A Link to the Past to join in the festivities as well.

As usual, you can download this album (along with many other Dtoid-exclusive releases) from our SoundCloud page. And if you want Ran to cover a game of your choosing, drop him a line at megaranfans@gmail.com or a modest donation on his FundRazr.

As a huge fan of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it was exciting to hear that long-time series producer Koji Igarashi had left Konami to make the kind of games he wanted to make -- "the same kind I think fans of my past g...more
