Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro come together to create a Silent Hill game!
Sorry im late with this news but an official trailer was released for the teased mysterious horror game demo titled “P.T.” earlier today at Gamescom. We found out that this interactive demo is for the upcoming Silent Hill title created by non other than Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania) and Guillermo Del Toro (Blade, Splice, Pans Laberynth, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark), and the lead character is modeled after and played by Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead! We have been hearing a lot of interest in the Silent Hill franchise coming from Kojima for sometime now and many fans were both excited and weary of the possibility. Having the franchise return to a Japanese developer especially one who funds plenty of money and takes its time on its projects takes a lot of concern and worry away from Silent Hill fans in return for pure joy and excitement. This could be the closest the franchise has gotten to Team Silent since well, Team Silent… On the other hand Kojima makes action games with many sexual innuendos, a much different tone and style from Silent Hill… Could it be done right?
With the inclusion of Del Torro who is known for his fine work in dark fantasy, sci-fi and horror and who has a lifelong fascination with monsters, which he considers symbols of great power. A man known for his use of insectile and religious imagery, themes of Catholicism and celebrating imperfection, the underworld and clockwork motifs, and dominant amber lighting, I think we are safe! I cant help but wonder if that Del Torro game “inSANE” that was announced last fall as “in development”, even after the fallout of the game’s publisher THQ could possibly be this game now, under its new Silent Hill title. That game was a planned trilogy written and directed by Del Torro so if we find out this game is written and directed by Del Torro and produced by Kojima this could be the case. Both individual’s are know for being primarily producers behind their work so we will have to wait and see.
Breaking news here so not much is known, but it is rumored Ryan Gosling (The Notebook, Blue Valentine, Drive, The United States of Leland, Fracture) may be in the game as well and the games score may very well be created by franchise’s legendary composer Akira Yamaoka! The game appears to be the first touch of a Silent Hill game in first person since Silent Hill 4, which only had a small portion in first person. Though the game is still in development so anything could change.The only thing known now is that the game will be available for PS4 and the games titled just appears as “Silent Hills” which seems a bit unsettling. A specific developer and date is still unknown but we can see the game is under the Fox Engine! Im excited for it and it definitely looks promising. I really hope this isnt a great potential that doesnt meet up to its expectation. What do you guys think?
