Equipment Discussion is a music track originally composed by Masahiko Kimura for Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. It is the background theme that plays in Hammer's shop in the The Lost Village.

It reappeared in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, this time called Enterprising Mercantilism as bonus track, but with a few instrumental differences.

The track was later reused for Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls.

  • The theme's title in Dawn of Sorrow is a reference to Hammer's role as a merchant in the game, given that his shop sells weapons, armor, clothes and accessories.
