4 pictures from an obvious reboot of Konami’s beloved Silent Hill collection have been leaked onto the web—and have been nearly instantly nuked by a copyright strike, more-or-less confirming their authenticity. As well as, a former Silent Hill developer bemoaned the shortage of professionalism at studios which have “a number of individuals” offering supplies to a identified leaker.
The latter level shouldn’t be direct affirmation after all, however Konami’s attorneys have actually performed a blinder. So… method to throw individuals off the scent. The 4 pictures, which can be seen here, present an especially messy lounge, filled with paraphernalia, garbage and (after all) a cot. The wallpaper’s peeling, the home windows are wonky, and in brief it seems to be very very similar to a Silent Hill location. One other shot exhibits a close-up of what seems to be like an equally dilapidated kitchen.
The opposite screens present a red-tinged hall coated with post-it notes, saying good issues like ‘pervert and ‘fats bitch’, with a determine looming on the finish of the hall whose head seems shaped from the post-its. Then there is a lady’s face the place elements of her pores and skin are lacking, with comparable scrawled messages seen beneath saying but extra loveliness reminiscent of ‘minger’ and ‘I hate myself.’
If a studio has a number of individuals sending supplies to a identified leaker, they don’t seem to be skilled sufficient to do the sport justice.May 13, 2022
Lastly there is a piece of idea artwork that the crimson hall screenshot is clearly based mostly on. This picture is dated within the bottom-right as being from October 20, 2020, and is signed by Masahiro Ito—the artwork director on earlier Silent Hills.
Fairly on-the-nose stuff, and using British slang like ‘minger’ means that the rumours of a UK setting are true (resulting in some twitter wags declaring this to be Silent Hull). The idea artwork additionally has a door with “He isn’t a messiah, he is a really imply [indecipherable]—Staff Robbie” scrawled on it, which is after all a Lifetime of Brian reference and provides additional credence to the UK angle.
The leaker, AestheticGamer wrote when sharing the photographs (thanks, VGC): “There’s rather a lot I’m not sharing for now. That is from a comparatively new supply for me, however I’ve been given greater than sufficient proof to imagine them. I additionally will point out the names ‘Anita & Maya’, ‘SMS Messages’, and this isn’t the one Silent Hill sport in improvement.
“The photographs are a bit dated, from 2020, so possibly this undertaking seems to be a bit totally different now. However [this is] what I’m selecting to share. I do know many will doubt this, however I’ve a variety of personal proof to indicate that is actual, and as at all times I proceed to attend on the Silent Hill sport reveal.”
Shortly after which, the photographs have been eliminated “in response to a report from the copyright holder” and AestheticGamer’s Twitter account was briefly locked.
A brand new Silent Hill has been rumoured for years, with Bloober Team said to be on development duties, however that is essentially the most stable proof but that one thing is certainly on the market. Great because it was, P.T. now looks like an unbearably merciless tease of the fanbase, the last word what-might-have-been. It seems to be like, quickly sufficient, we’ll discover out what actually is subsequent for one of many nice horror collection.
