New Silent Hill Coming December
Konami Digital Entertainment’s popular horror series will see the latest installment titled Silent Hill: Shattered Memories releasing on December 8th for Nintendo Wii, with Sony PSP and PS2 (that’s right Playstation TWO) versions to release shortly after. The game is supposed to be like the original title, but with a twist. The story starts the same as protagonist, Harry Mason, is searching for his missing daughter in the snowy streets of Silent Hill, but this time the player will only be equipped with a flashlight and cellphone. You’re going to have to gather story information, play through puzzles, lurk through dark streets and escape enemies, all without the security of a weapon. The game will also be based on profiling and analyzing players to adjust itself to their actions. Here are profiles of the characters Konami has released to give you all a head start on the game.
Harry Mason – While driving through the spooky streets of Silent Hill, Harry’s car skids on a patch of ice and veers off the road into a ditch. Upon waking from the crash, he realizes his daughter Cheryl is missing and sets out into the dark, freezing night to find her.
Cheryl Mason – Harry’s daughter who has mysteriously disappeared, causing him to brave the streets of Silent Hill. She’s a cheerful girl who loves her father very much.
Cybil Bennett – After years on the police force, Cybil has seen a lot of crazy things, but she’s not quite sure what to make of Harry Mason. She decides early on to keep an eye on him, and their paths cross repeatedly.
Dr. K – A friendly, relatable therapist who shows up periodically to evaluate the player. His therapy sessions consist of interactive psychological test which players will actually take part in.
Michelle – Michelle meets Harry at her High School reunion, however he doesn’t remember it. Tired of waiting to meet up with her boyfriend, she decides to aid Harry in finding his daughter.
Dahlia – A tough, street-wise young girl, Dahlia seems to know quite a bit about Harry. The fact that he can’t remember anything about her confuses Dahlia as much as it does Harry.
