Silent Hill: Amid Reboot Rumours, Konami Renews Trademark
Konami has revamped its Silent Hill branding amid continued rumors of an upcoming reboot.
According to the video game Chronicle, Reddit user LongJohnSilver noticed an updated branding that came along with updates for Frogger, Gradius, The Water Margin, and Tokimeki Memorial. The Silent Hill brand name extends to games, virtual reality headsets. And a number of other goods and services. Though this is not unusual as Konami still sells various Silent Hill merchandise. Throughout 2021, there were reports that Konami was working on a new Silent Hill. With VGC once again revealing that it plans to rethink versions of some of its most popular franchises.
Various other reports have indicated that other Silent Hill games are in development,
But Konami has not given any official details on whether this is the case. The franchise has been inactive since 2012, except for a very brief appearance in 2014. PT Konami released a playable teaser to tease a new game called Silent Hills that was supposed to be directed by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro, but it was canceled and pulled from sale. After a few months.
There are eight main games in the Silent Hill series,
From 1999 original (which IGN said was amazing) to 2012’s Silent Hill: Downpour (which IGN said was bad). Although Konami has rebranded for Silent Hill, it hasn’t been as successful in other areas as someone seems to have bought SilentHill.com in February just to troll the publisher. The website now displays a single real tweet from Silent Hill 2 and 3 art director Masahiro Ito, who said he regrets developing the series’ iconic villain Pyramid Head.
