Konami leak their own Silent Hill reveal ahead of today’s stream

Konami reveals that Silent Hill is making a comeback, more information coming on Wednesday

The past few years have been torture for any Silent Hill fan. We’ve experienced rumour after rumour, leak after leak, and still haven’t heard so much as a whisper from Konami. It had got to the point where many fans desperately hoped for a new instalment in the pivotal horror series, but many had accepted it might never happen. Instead, we’ve been left trying – and struggling – to replay some of the best horror games of all time since. It’s been an entire decade since the last full Silent Hill game, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, and seven years since…

Silent Hill: The Short Message has been rated in Korea

First spotted by Gematsu, it appears that a Silent Hill title — Silent Hill: The Short Message — has been rated in Korea. This particular game has not yet been announced by Konami, nor are any platforms for the title specified. Just in case you needed reminding of classic Silent Hill, here’s the 1998 E3 trailer. This rating has appeared rather unexpectedly, given that many of the most recent leaks were supposedly related to a remake of Silent Hill 2 or a playable teaser for some sort of mainline instalment. The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea, where Gematsu…

Taking down PT from PSN store was “an awkard conversation” says the person who had to do it

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. A bit of light is shed on a messy situation. Eight years after the Silent Hills demo first released, the person responsible for taking PT down from the PSN store discusses what happened. We all dearly wish we could have seen Hideo Kojima’s take on Silent Hill (and obviously so does he), but unfortunately we likely never will, outside of any footage of PT that’s currently online. PT was an incredibly promising demo, and now due to its cancellation isn’t…

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. Earlier this week, some images leaked of a supposed Silent Hill reboot were taken down via DMCA by Konami. While it can’t be confirmed if these images are real or not, the take downs certainly are suspicious. And now YouTuber NateTheHate has claimed that a remake of Silent Hill 2 is in…
