Konami Announces Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for Wii, PlayStation 2 System and PSP System
Popular Survival Horror Series Resurrects True Terror With Debut on Wii
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - April 6, 2009 - Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. today unveiled
the latest iteration in the popular Silent Hill franchise scheduled to launch this
fall on Wii(TM), PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable)
system. Featuring an interactive user interface, improved puzzle system, and a psych
profile that changes the experience based on the players' gameplay choices, Silent
Hill: Shattered Memories conveys the most fluid and realistic gameplay of the series
"Silent Hill: Shattered Memories returns to its roots in this re-imagining of the
original Silent Hill with the most interactive and frightening installment of the
decade-old series," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami
Digital Entertainment, Inc. "With a deep storyline, eerie music and a psych profile
that watches its players and evolves to expose their innermost fears throughout
the game, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is sure to evoke fear in both franchise
newcomers and longtime survival horror fans."
In this terrifying survival horror experience with an all-new soundtrack by acclaimed
series composer Akira Yamaoka, players follow Harry Mason, the maladroit protagonist
who is searching for his missing daughter, Cheryl. While Harry wanders the snowy
streets of Silent Hill searching for clues of her disappearance, he must face twisted
creatures from the depths of his frozen nightmares.
In the Wii(TM) version, players will be drawn into the mysterious town using the
Wii Remote(TM) as a flashlight and cell phone as they search for clues. The cell
phone can also be used by players as a user interface which acts as a story telling
device, map, camera and much more, providing seamless flow with no interruption
in gameplay. Additionally, through a very unique feature in the game, an advanced
psych profile watches and adapts to players' actions to acclimatize Harry and the
people he meets, the places he visits, and the enemies he encounters to create an
intense and gripping experience like never before.
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is scheduled to launch this fall for the Wii(TM)
video game system from Nintendo, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, and
PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system.
