Trio of Silent Hill games haunting early 2012
Konami confirms survival horror series HD Collection making belated debut on January 24, Book of Memories opens up on PS Vita in February, and Silent Hill Downpour falls on 360 and PS3 in March.
It's 12 full months until Halloween rolls around again, but Konami is readying a full slate of scares for horror-hungry gamers early next year. Today the publisher confirmed plans to roll out a new Silent Hill game in stores for each of the first three months of 2012.
The Silent Hill HD Collection will kick things off when it debuts January 24. Originally announced as a fall 2011 release, the HD Collection includes new versions of Silent Hill 2 and 3, complete with new voice-overs for the characters.
Following up in February will be the series debut for the PlayStation Vita, Silent Hill Book of Memories. Konami didn't date the game, but the hardware on which it runs will launch in stores February 22. The game itself will center on a mysterious book that contains the protagonist's entire life story, and it can be edited to change the past and present. The game will also introduce multiplayer to the Silent Hill franchise with a new cooperative mode.
Finally, Silent Hill Downpour is set for release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March. The first new console installment in the series since 2008's Homecoming, Downpour follows convicted felon Murphy Pendleton in the aftermath of a prison bus crash that leaves him stuck in Silent Hill.
