Don't mothball your PlayStation 2 just yet: Silent Hill: Origins, the survival-horror game originally released on the PSP, is headed over to the ubiquitous last-gen console in May.
"It is fantastic to bring the Silent Hill series back to the format that was so integral to its success,”, said Hans-Joachim Amann, Head of European Product Management for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “Silent Hill Origins is a stunning prelude that explains some of the mystery and mythos of the series, and we look forward to inviting Silent Hill’s many fans back to its doom-laden streets.”
The prequel tells the story of a troubled truck driver whose trip to the little town of Silent Hills proves troubling, spooky and perhaps boo-scary.
The PlayStation 2 version will naturally improve the visuals, but also promises a "host of elements that are new to the franchise" and to "provide the player with an enhanced sensation of isolation."
As if videogamers need an enhanced sensation of isolation...
