There is a lot from the stream to break down, and many new Silent Hill products are coming soon.
Let’s dive into the contents of Silent Hill Transmission, and the many new pieces of media being added to the canon.
Silent Hill Transmission – Silent Hill 2 Remake
One of the biggest things that Konami revealed during the show was a Silent Hill 2 Remake. Widely regarded by fans as the best game in the series, a remake in the style of other popular survival horror video game remakes makes a lot of sense.
The game is being produced by Bloober Team, the developers behind Blair Witch and Observer. This new take on the game retains fan-favorite elements such as Pyramid Head but takes the action over-the-shoulder in the same vein as Resident Evil 4.
With Bloober remaking such a beloved horror title, they’ll have to be careful to do the excellent writing and atmosphere justice. In fairness to Bloober, atmosphere and narrative have always been one of their strongest points.
Silent Hill Transmission – Silent Hill Townfall and Silent Hill F
Silent Hill Townfall was another game announced during the show. No Code is developing the game, the team who bought us Stories Untold and Observation, both being narrative-focused games chocked full of puzzles.
This style matches Silent Hill’s style quite well, so there’s a good chance that the game could turn out pretty decent. Outside of a title and the developers, we know almost nothing about the game, not even a release date, so keep your ears to the ground on this one.
Another revealed game was Silent Hill F, which turns out to be the source of those screenshots that got leaked a little while ago. The game is set in Japan, not England, and is being developed by the team behind Resident Evil Resistance, NeoBards Entertainment Ltd.
Silent Hill Transmission – Live Interactive Drama and New Movie
As well as games, the Silent Hill Transmission also showed off some other media products based on the IP. First up is Silent Hill: Ascension, a live, interactive drama where viewers can watch along and decide the course of the narrative.
Genvid Entertainment is developing the game in partnership with Bad Robot Games, the development wing of J.J.Abrams’ production company. Nothing else is known about the game besides it will release in 2023.
The final piece of news in the show was about a new live-action movie being directed by Christophe Gans, the director of the first Silent Hill movie adaptation. This new movie appears to be taking on the story of James Sunderland as told in Silent Hill 2, with some concept art showing storyboards of the game’s opening scene on the outskirts of the town.
