The Silent Hillgame franchise isn’t going to bed anytime soon, even though there isn’t much talk lately about a new sequel in the series. The last we heard was that Konami reached out directly to Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid) to helm the future installment, which would most likely be released only on next-gen consoles since it would take full advantage of the latest FOX engine. A cross-platform game engine developed by Kojima Productions and designed for the next generation of video games. Kojima definitely expressed interest in future involvement, but for now, the game just doesn’t seem to have time to work on a new Silent Hill game, “I have no idea when I’ll be able to do this, but maybe some day in the future,” he said.
It’s unfortunate news because we would love to get our hands on a fresh sequel in the future. We can at least say that Konami hasn’t ruled out the idea yet. In fact, Konami is so loyal to the series that it plans on releasing two old Silent Hill games for the PlayStation Vita, they confirmed today. That’s right! Silent Hill: Origins and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is dropping on the PS Vita in the near future, but be aware that the games have only been confirmed for Europe. There’s no word on a U.S. release.
The Silent Hill series enjoys a stunning reputation for innovation and terror, and these re-issues will introduce a new generation of users to its terrifying secrets.
The games will cost €7.99/9,95 Euro each, and a release date is expected to be announced shortly.
