rumors of a Silent Hill Konami’s renaissance has been around for quite some time and it looks like it’s all but confirmed thanks to a new rating from the Korea Game Rating and Management Committee (cheers, Gematsu).
Noble, Silent Hill: The Short Message, the rating comes from UNIANA, a company that regularly publishes Konami games in Japan. Along with The Short Message, electronic football 2023 was also rated at the same time, perhaps indicating that the new Silent Hill title really is the real deal.
As for what that might entail, well, that’s anyone’s guess at this point. The title itself may hint that this will be another brief experience to act as a precursor to the main event, similar to the 2015 PT (Silent Hills) demo from creators Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro. Let’s hope this isn’t unceremoniously canceled.
The big question, of course, is whether this new title will come to Switch. We like to think we’re optimistic here at Nintendo Life, but even we’re a bit skeptical about this. With the likes of Resident Evil 4, Dead Space, The Callisto Protocol, and Alan Wake II taking aim at PlayStation and Xbox systems, we won’t hold our breath for Silent Hill.
Still, stranger things have happened!
What do you think Silent Hill: The Short Message is? A complete game? A demonstration? Will it even come to Switch? Tell us in the comments!
