Rumours grow as details of a Silent Hill 2 remake emerge following recent leak

A remake, a new mainline game, and “side ‘stories’” are all part of this week’s rumours. The rumour mill doesn’t want to stop at the moment, as a new rumour has come out claiming that The Medium developer Bloober Team is working on a Silent Hill 2 remake.

Leaked Silent Hill images suggest a new game with a British setting

Images of what appear to be a new entry in Konami’s psychological horror series Silent Hill were posted briefly online over the weekend, before they were struck down by a copyright claim a few hours later.

Konami’s multiplayer mystery game Crimesight releases this April

Konami announced yesterday at the Future Games Show that Crimesight will be coming out April 14th. It looks like a combination of Cluedo, Sherlock Holmes, and what I think are evil artificial intelligence anime spirits. Crimesight only allows up to four players, but you’ll be exploring a snowed-in cottage as you try to either work out who the murderer is, or help them win. You can take a look at the trailer below.

Konami’s Castlevania NFT collection sold for £119,000

Konami’s first auction of NFTs concluded over the weekend, with idiots collectively spending the equivalent of £119,000 ($162k) in cryptocurrency to buy 14 database entries pointing to Castlevania artwork, music, and videos that anyone online can see for free. On one hand, thank god it was only £119,000 because if it was the millions that some ugly Twitter avatars have sold for, every other mercenary games company would ramp up their own NFT initiatives. On the other, oh god £119,000 is still so much money for basically nothing. Read more

Should’ve guessed. While publishers like Square Enix, EA, and Take-Two are still contemplating NFTs, I am not remotely surprised that Konami are one of the first notable names to actually start selling useless digital junk. Next week, they will hold an auction for NFTs of videos, artwork, and music from early Castlevania games. Konami, man. Read more
