Silent Hill: Shattered Memories/Silent Hill 2 News
I can’t say I’m too impressed with the logo…
An onslaught of Silent Hill news has been coming out recently, one of which includes a new game for the Playstation 2, PSP, and Wii. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is essentially a reboot of the original game with new AI, scarier graphics, and different gameplay mechanics.
Konami explains the game’s plot:
The story follows Harry Mason, who wakes up after a car accident to find that his daughter Cheryl is missing. Harry will wander the snowy streets of Silent Hill searching for answers of her disappearance, but when the world freezes over, he will need to escape the lumbering demons that haunt his steps. Harry will need to navigate both worlds to discover the truth; not just about his missing daughter, but also the type of person he actually is.
And the trailer:
The graphics look nice enough, and the monsters are a little creepy, but I’m wondering if there any more creatures besides those pale, Gollum-like beings. Also, the game is having its debut on the Wii, and while the flashlight mechanics look nice in the trailer, I don’t exactly trust survival horror games on the console after my atrocious Alone in the Dark experience.
Whatever happens, you can grab the game off of video game retailers’ shelves November 3. And yes, Konami, I would like to review it!
To continue the SH news, the Hollywood Reporter gave some news on the greenlight for a sequel to 2006’s Silent Hill. Samuel Hadida is working on the new film, with Roger Avary on script-writing duties. Both are reprising their work from the original film. No plot details have been confirmed at this time. Look for the film sometime in 2010 if the rumors hold true.
