Japanese Horror Artist Hints At a Silent Hills Revival

Despite Konami’s denial, it certainly looks like something is going on with Silent Hills!

A recent post on ResetEra with a pair of Instagram screenshots from Japanese horror artist Suehiro Maruo has added fuel to the fire that burns for a Silent Hills revival. The caption on one of the images reads “Afternoon invitations hope you’ll join in” with a tombstone image that reads “Silent Hills” in both English and Japanese katakana.” The other image features the Midtown East Konami display outside the entrance of Konami’s Tokyo HQ.

This is actually big news considering the previous rumor that Konami was developing two new Silent Hill games (one a revival of the Silent Hills spin-off and the other being a remaster or new entry to the main Silent Hill series.) A rumor a couple of months later said that both of those games were returning for the PlayStation 5.  Konami also recently shot down the rumors altogether, saying there was no reboot of either game, but also claimed that it wasn’t abandoning the series altogether:

“It’s not to say we are completely closing the door on the franchise, just not in the way it is being reported.”

So, this leaves a major question as to what’s actually going on with Silent Hill or the Silent Hills spin-off. Rumors say that Sony is working to mediate a revived relationship between Konami and Hideo Kojma to bring the game back to life, and more recently Kojima said the plan for his next horror game is to make you “crap your pants.” With real evidence that at least one horror artist is visiting Konami, and the visit being somehow related to Silent Hills, there’s clearly something going on with the series or, at the very least, the Silent Hills spinoff. If something is in the works, it’ll probably launch on the PlayStation 5.
