Silent Hill Transmission: a live full of announcements
Horror saga of the 90s developed by Konami, Silent Hill marked the beginning of the 2000s of its imprint in the same way as Capcom and Resident Evil. However, for the past few years, it has been the latter who have extended the pleasure with an eighth episode published in 2021 and the remake of their first opuses. An initiative that, to the dismay of fans, has not been repeated by Konami with its “silent hills”. Anyway, not until yesterday.
Indeed, fans of Silent Hill shared their enthusiasm last October 16, when the official Silent Hill page on Twitter announced a live broadcast to discuss the future of the series. A broadcast that took place last night.
This was filled with announcements since it formalized five upcoming projects. Subject of rumors for several months, the remake de Silent Hill 2 was finally made official yesterday and was probably the most anticipated title today. He too had been the subject of gossip for a few months: Silent Hill Townfall, the title entrusted to the publisher Annapurna Interactive (Stray or even 12 Minutes), was seen broadcasting a rather cryptic trailer. An enigma that we find with the Silent Hill Ascension project, a kind of interactive series.

Silent Hill f: the big surprise that marks a great premiere
Nevertheless, the big surprise of the evening remains Silent Hill f. This is a video game in good standing, developed by NeoBards Entertainment, a Taiwanese company founded in 2017. It is to them, among others, that we owe the remake of Resident Evil 3 as well as the asymmetric multiplayer game Resident Evil:ReVerse… which is still not released. In terms of casting, we also know that the screenwriter will be Ryukishi07: a mangaka specializing in horror known for many short stories. Regarding production, Motoi Okamoto will be in charge. He has worked on many Nintendo hits like Luigi’s Mansion, Wind Waker, Pikmin, Super Mario 64 DS and Wii Fit.
Unveiled yesterday, Silent Hill f marks a major first in the history of the saga. She says goodbye to the English lands, home of the series, to say hello to the Japanese archipelago of the 60s as illustrated by the trailer released last night (and to be viewed at the top of this article). The context is, once again, difficult to grasp, but it is assumed that the young girl in the spotlight is seeking revenge for a loved one killed by plants with mysterious powers. In any case, the trailer sets the tone.
No release date or platform has yet been announced regarding Silent Hill f..
