All Articles: Silent Hill HD Collection
It’s taken more than 20 years, but Pit is finally back in Kid Icarus: Uprising for the 3DS. Hallelujah! (Cause he’s an angel, get it?).
Also available this week is Team Ninja’s Ninja Gaiden 3 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s the first game in the series without input from former studio head Tomonobu Itagaki and it comes with a sweet Dead or Alive 5 demo.
Rounding out the rest of the new releases is Capcom’s multiplayer shooter, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (PS3, Xbox 360); From Software’s next Armored Core, Armored Core V (PS3, Xbox 360); and Konami’s compilation of the second and third Silent Hill games, the Silent Hill HD Collection (PS3, Xbox 360).
A complete list of this week’s new releases, including a Kinect game starring Pixar’s greatest characters, can be found after the break. (more…)
With three Silent Hill games on the schedule (one for each month), Konami had previously planned to keep gamers in the state of perpetual panic throughout the new year. But several delays have now condensed a season of scares into one monstrous month.
Silent Hill HD Collection will bow first on March 6. The PS3 and Xbox 360 package will collect Silent Hill 2 (considered by many to be the best game in the series) and Silent Hill 3 into a single package. The compilation will include new vocal performances and updated high definition graphics.
Silent Hill: Downpour, also in the works for the PS3 and Xbox 360, will follow the HD Collection into stores a week later on March 13. Developed by Vatra Games (their first in the Silent Hill series), Downpour is a twist on The Fugitive formula as convicted felon Murphy Pendleton escapes a prison bus crash outside a familiarly foggy burg.
Finally, the series will make its debut on Sony’s new Vita handheld on March 27 with Silent Hill: Book of Memories. Book of Memories introduces time travel to the Silent Hill universe and also includes another first, a multiplayer mode.
Konami has informed Game Informer that the Silent Hill HD Collection won’t be available in stores on January 24 as previously announced.
The compilation package, which contains Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3, will instead be released sometime in March. This new release date will actually push the HD Collection into competition with Silent Hill: Downpour, which also has a March release date.
That’s a lot of Silent Hill for PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers to handle.
The Wintertime is already cold and dark and a little scary, but Konami plans to make it downright terrifying next year. Over the first three months of 2012, the publisher plans to release three new games in the Silent Hill series.
Konami plans to ease us into their Silent Hill marathon with the release of the Silent Hill HD Collection on January 24. The PS3/Xbox 360 package collects Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 together and gives them an HD makeover for the first time.
In February, the terror goes portable as Silent Hill: Book of Memories comes to the Vita. Sony’s next handheld is scheduled for a February 22 launch in the US, so consider this one a launch title.
Finally, the Vatra Games-developed Silent Hill: Downpour will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in March.
And they say
Christmas Halloween comes but once a year.
