Konami Re-Imagines Original Silent Hill
The original Silent Hill released on the PlayStation in 1999 will have a face-lift as Konami announced the remake (or re-imagined) for the Nintendo Wii. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories will be released on the Nintendo Wii, the PlayStation 2 and PSP this year.
The game will follow Harry Mason again as he searches the eerie town of Silent Hill to find his daughter. Shattered Memories will offer a number of new features like an "interactive user interface" as well as a revamped puzzle system.
Speaking to Nintendo Power, producer Tomm Hulett commented: "One of Shattered Memories' most significant and intriguing additions--your answers actually affect how the game unfolds. And it doesn't end there. The game 'watches' you constantly, and your behavior throughout can determine when you'll meet certain characters, which scenes you'll witness, and a variety of other factors."
Konami noted that Shattered Memories will be the first installment in the series released for the Wii. The Wii version will support the Wii Remote's motion-sensing capabilities, with players using the controller as a stand-in for a flashlight and cell phone, which aid them in finding clues.
