Silent Hill Hits Wii

Shattered Memories is a re-imagining of the original

Konami is bringing Silent Hill: Shattered Memories to Wii. The latest issue of US Magazine Nintendo Power reveals that the game is a re-imagining of the original game that was released for PlayStation in 1999.

The original followed a character called Harry as he searched for his daughter, Cheryl who disappeared following a car accident which left Harry unconscious. He finds himself in Silent Hill, a town shrouded in thick fog and populated by monsters.

In an interview with Nintendo Power producer Tomm Hulett said "It's not a remake or a port. That's an important distinction. It really feels like a new game."

Hulett also mentions that characters will be playing different roles in the game, and events won't always be in the same order as in the original even through the basic plot remains the same.

Look out for more details and screenshots soon.

    I've played little Silent Hill bar round a mates who rented the 1st game, and I also played a demo of one of the later games. The 1st game kinda mesmorised me though because of the chilling atmosphere, hopefully this Wii "retelling" can reatin the same level of chill-factor. :twisted:

    I'm all for Silent Hill making it's first appearance on the Wii. And while I do like the idea of a remake/re-imaginging of the first Silent Hill, which worked out for the remake of Resident Evil on the Gamecube. I would prefer it if they gave us a brand new Silent Hill game for the Wii, rather than a remake of an old one.

    Great news.
    The Wii is becoming the home for Survival Horror it seems.
    Obscure 2, REmake and Zero, Cursed Mountain, Project Zero and now this.
    Consider me most impressed.

    Nice to see that developers are bringing more mature games to Wii.

    The first game was awsome and the atmosphere was perfect. Lets hope the Wii version lives up to the original.

    Should be very interesting indeed. So it'll be a re-imagining of the original then? I'd assume it means new level design etc. with a few alterations to the plot.

    Still, it's nice to see that the Wii always seems to have a good mature game around the corner.

    None of the new Silent Hill games are any good. Homecoming was terrible. This may have potential to do what the Resident Evil remake did except with Silent Hill. It'll give a great game a new spin that makes it seem less archaic and clunky and freshen up the survival horror genre.
