SILENT Hill 2 will reportedly be shown during this year’s Tokyo Game Show (TGS). Because of this, we think the remake is on the horizon.
TGS is Japan’s leading game fair where most Japanese developers and publishers present their games for the first time.
This year, Konami has a spot open for a “Mystery Game” based on a world-famous historical game from its library.
Many believe that this is a remake of his most popular Silent Hill game, Silent Hill 2.
Rumors started when creator Masahiro Ito tweeted “I f**king hate Pyramid Head”, the antagonist from Silent Hill 2.
Ito has been open about his disgust at the direction Konami has taken with his iconic character and has even retired from the franchise.
Initially, fans believed this was a reference to Pyramid Head’s inclusion in Hooked on You, a dead by daylight dating sim where you date hitmen from the game.
However, now that the game has been released, we know that Pyramid Head is not included, indicating its inclusion in another game.
Polish Studio Bloober team apparently pitched the idea of the remake to Konami, using its history of well-received horror games.
The team that developed Layers of Fear, Observer and Blair Witch collaborated with Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka on The Medium 2021 game.
Screenshots from the rumored pitch leaked in 2018 and include low-budget proof-of-concept art and designs.
However, a more recent leak shows more complete images that appear as if the game is currently in development.
This year’s TGS will run from September 15-18, with the unannounced game reportedly getting 45 minutes of stage time.
It is scheduled for September 16 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Japan time and will be presented by voice actor Yuki Kaji.
Kaji is known for playing soft-spoken characters like Adol Christin from the Ys series.
His voice would go well with Silent Hill 2 protagonist James Sunderland.
