It’s been a very long time coming. So lengthy, in reality, that it’s personally fairly arduous to consider that is actual and never simply one other leak. Revealed throughout Konami’s Silent Hill Transmission immediately, a remake of one of the vital prolific video games within the horror style — Silent Hill 2 — has been introduced.
The remake is at the moment being developed by Bloober Crew, as earlier rumours and leaks recommended. The developer is behind horror titles Layers of Concern and The Medium, that are each completely common, and makes me glad I toned down my expectations a tad earlier than leaping into the transmission. I suppose we are able to now all be relieved that these leaks will be laid to relaxation a minimum of.
Masahiro Ito, creature designer for Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2, and Silent Hill 3, (additionally artwork director on each 2, and three) is lastly again on board, too. With Ito, the creator of Pyramid Head himself on board, this remake already exhibits some promise. Let’s now simply hope that Bloober Crew can pull this out the bag.
Akira Yamaoka, the sensible composer behind the soundtracks for the primary three Silent Hill video games (a few of the greatest soundtracks of all time, for my part), and composer on a couple of later video games within the collection, will even be concerned within the growth of Silent Hill 2’s remake.
Silent Hill 2 follows James Sunderland by the treacherous city as he makes an attempt to seek out his spouse after he receives a letter from her. The problem, nevertheless, is that Mary (James’ spouse) died three years earlier. This then descends into one hell of a journey that will get progressively extra tousled, and it’s incredible.
It’ll be fascinating to see how the remake is executed, provided that the PS1-style is a part of what gave Silent Hill 2 it’s edge. What do you reckon to this traditional being remade?
