A NEW Silent Hill game has been rated in South Korea, which means there will be a new entry in the series soon.
A new video game in the series, which was first submitted to the Korea Management Committee on August 19, is coming soon.
The upcoming game, dubbed Silent Hill: The Short Message, is confirmed as “video game content,” according to the filing.
This is for those worried that it might be a movie or pachinko machine like Konami has done in the past called Silent Hill.
The game is confirmed for “video game consoles, PC, arcade or mobile” although no specific platform has been stated.
It’s also rated mature, which means there’s likely to be some terrifying gameplay.
UNIANA is confirmed as publisher for the title. The company publishes Konami’s free-to-play game eFootball in South Korea, formerly Pro Evolution Soccer.
The country is known to have strict laws on microtransactions and some developers are heavily sued for their abuse.
However, despite the publisher’s connection to eFootball, it is understood that Silent Hill: The Short Message will not feature microtransactions.
Fans have speculated that this is another game codenamed “Project Sakura” by the developer.
It is believed to be a playable teaser, similar to PT
PT, short for Playable Teaser, was a short free demo for the discontinued Silent Hills.
The game has been said to be co-helmed by Guillermo Del Toro and star Norman Reedus, who are both friends and have worked with former Konami employee Hideo Kojima.
However, when Kojima left the company, the game was canceled and PT was removed from the PlayStation Store.
Since then, Konami has apparently been working on various other Silent Hill projects, including one rumored to be in development by the Bloober team.
We’re not sure if The Short Message will be a teaser for the rumored Silent Hill 2 remake, the speculative newcomer Silent Hill 5, or something else entirely.
