Silent Hill Remake Would Want a “Rethink” Says Creator, Slitterhead Prototyping Full

Written by Jeff Lampkin

Over the previous couple years rumors of a Silent Hill remake or revival have endured, however no official announcement has materialized. All people appears to have an opinion on how a Silent Hill revival must be dealt with, together with sequence co-creator Keiichiro Toyama. Early Silent Hill rumors indicated Sony Japan Studio was engaged on a brand new entry underneath Toyama’s steerage, however as a substitute, Sony shut down the staff and Toyama based the brand new unbiased improvement home, Bokeh Recreation Studio. Whether or not Toyama was ever actually engaged on one other Silent Hill is unknown, however in a new interview with Video Games Chronicle he rejected the thought of an easy remake.

I feel [Silent Hill] can be more durable to remake than [Resident Evil], as a result of the gameplay as an idea is somewhat older. It’s not an motion sport the place you’ll be able to simply refine the motion as in Biohazard, to carry Silent Hill as much as present requirements or to shine up the graphics, the followers wouldn’t be glad. That’s not what it was about — how stunning it was. I feel you’d need to rethink the idea to make it fascinating to followers.

If there was to be a brand new entry sooner or later I might clearly be very fascinated with it as one person. I do know there are lots of video games that adopted within the footsteps of Silent Hill right this moment, so I might notably wish to know what a brand new entry would go away and alter from the unique.

Bokeh Recreation Studio’s first title, Slitterhead, was revealed at The Recreation Awards and it seems to include some Silent Hill DNA (take a look at the primary teaser trailer under). That stated, don’t count on it any time too quickly, as the sport has but to enter full manufacturing.

As for [Slitterhead], now we have accomplished our prototyping section. We shall be utilizing our data gained from the suggestions to enter full manufacturing. Although it’s too early to disclose any particulars in regards to the sport, and it’ll take a while previous to launch, we hope you sit up for it!

No platforms for launch window have been introduced for Slitterhead. As for Silent Hill, the latest rumors point out that Konami is engaged on a remake with a 3rd occasion, presumably Layers of Worry and The Medium creators Bloober Group, however take that with a grain of salt for now.
