It would be nice if it is good as it’s a loved game.

Will it change much if it fails or underperforms?

Possibly because Konami just got back into having games made and this is the biggest one and if it doesn’t do well will they go back to pachinko only mode?

They should have gave it to a more established dev who is good at remakes at least.

I think Bluepoint would have been perfect.

We can only hope it’s done well.

Combat is my biggest concern. Hopefully they hire a competent combat designer and other competent devs. They have a framework so that’s the good part and I do have some hope for it but there are reservations until I have it in my hands and get to play it.

2023 is the year of big games in horror and is expected to be my favorite year all around as horror is my preferred genre.

Alan Wake 2
RE4 Remake
Callisto Protocol
Alone in the Dark Remake
Sherlock Holmes the Awakened
Silent Hill 2 Remake
Dead Space Remake
System Shock remake
Amnesia the Bunker
Layers of Fears
Stalker 2

and many promising titles such as Shame Legacy, Greyhill incident, Fort Solis, Oxenfree 2, Daymare 1994 Sandcastle, Unholy, Spirit Hunter Deathmark 2 etc

It is true I believe that indie horrors carried the weight for this genre throughout the years.

On Nintendo Switch alone (which was generally not associated with horror due to the target audience), I finished over 80(!) horror games with another 30+ being developed.

The majority of those were of course indie games. If you visit youtube channels dedicated to horror you will find dozens of horror games releasing on a regular basis.

I would agree however that Blooper (which I really like because of slow paced games), is not ideal because of the weapon system that needs to be involved in Silent Hill 2, but I am confident that they can create a solid game.

Isn't Hell Blade II running in UE5? Bit of a weird omission.

How did I not know Silent Hill is running on UE5?


Interview with Konami's Michael Rajna

WTMG's Leo Faria: "I have seen a wide array of outlets and internet comments stating that Konami is back right now, as in, only after the announcement of the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake and the plethora of Silent Hill announcements in late 2022. I don’t particularly agree with that sentiment. If anything, I did state that the company was already performing a slow, but effective resurgence way back in late 2018, all thanks to actions like Castlevania Requiem, the VR version of Zone of the Enders, and partnering up with Nintendo in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

This isn’t new for us, it’s just the natural course of what seemed to be a long-term (and unrushed) strategy. Over the past few years, we saw more releases, both in terms of retro collections and new entries in estabilished IPs. Thankfully, I was able to interview Michael Rajna, Senior Director of Business Development and Licensing at Konami, at BIG Festival this year, where I was finally able to ask about the company’s past, present, and plans for the future."

A rather generic interview with all the same diplomatic responses. There are all the tough questions that nobody wants to ask because, who wants to bite the hand that feeds, right? But it's the same sounding interview just with Konami
