Silent Hill Transmission showcase: How to watch and what to expect

Konami has announced the Silent Hill Transmission livestream, a presentation that will provide updates on the long-dormant horror series. Rumblings of a new Silent Hill game have run rampant for years now, with several rumors (both plausible ones and conspiracy theories) floating around. That rumor mill will be replaced by facts this week as Konami will finally give fans real news. If you want to see the big moment, here’s when you can catch it and what might be revealed.

You can catch the Silent Hill Transmission on Konami.com at 2 p.m. PT on October 19. There haven’t been any other links to other video platforms like YouTube or Twitch, so it seems like the only way to watch the presentation will be on Konami’s official website. There was no mention of how long the live stream would be.

What to expect from the Silent Hill Transmission livestream

The Silent Hill franchise has been dormant for many years. While there hasn’t been any concrete news, there have been a few rumors popping up here and there.

Last month, a title called Silent Hill: The Short Message was rated in South Korea. The Medium developer Bloober Team is also reportedly working on a Silent Hill game. Leaks of a Silent Hill 2 remake and a playable concept called Sakura, which could be similar to P.T., also appeared last month. It’s possible that we see any number of this projects come to light, or learn that there’s crossover between them. For instance, it’s possible that Bloober Team’s rumored Silent Hill project is in fact the leaked remake.

What not to expect from the Silent Hill Transmission livestream

It’s worth keeping expectations in check. Konami has been chasing the pachinko game industry for the past few years. Silent Hill: The Short Message‘s developer was listed as UNIANA, which is highly invested in the arcade gaming space. The project could end up being a sort of side game, rather than a full-fledged AAA Silent Hill title.

It’s worth noting that Konami continues to invest in Web3 technology, with a recent job listing mentioning NFTs and blockchain gaming. While it’s more than likely we see a traditional game announced here, it’s not out of the question that Konami could dig up the franchise for anniversary NFTs, as it did with properties like Castlevania.

Key art for the November 2023 Indie World.

Nintendo is not done with video game showcases this year just yet. In the wake of a Nintendo Direct in September and ahead of The Game Awards in December, Nintendo will hold another Indie World Showcase to highlight several independent games coming to the Nintendo Switch soon. If you plan on tuning into the event live, we've rounded up all the information you need to know about it beforehand.

When is the November 2023 Indie World Showcase
Nintendo confirmed that the next Indie World Showcase will begin at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, November 14. Nintendo says the presentation will only take about 20 minutes, so you'll only need to take a little bit of time out of your morning to watch it.

Indie World Showcase 11.14.2023 - Nintendo Switch
Like most Nintendo presentations, the company will livestream this new Indie World Showcase across its official YouTube and Twitch channels. We've embedded the YouTube version of the showcase above so you can tune into the whole presentation right from this page.
What to expect from the November 2023 Indie World Showcase
The official announcement tweet and press release for November 2023's Indie World Showcase simply states that it will feature "new announcements and updates on indie games coming to Nintendo Switch." In terms of previously featured Indie World games that still aren't out, titles like Animal Well, Rift of the NecroDancer, and Pepper Grinder come to mind.
There are also plenty of memes on social media about Hollow Knight: Silksong showing up during the event; it's a game people have wanted to see in one of these showcases for years, but it has never shown up. Ultimately, Indie World Showcases are tough to predict because they are typically curated roundups of intriguing indie games that most people don't know about. You'll have a better time watching November 2023's Indie World Showcase if you go in with low expectations and just look forward to seeing some impressive indies you weren't aware of before.

Why do we love horror games? Psychologists explain our morbid curiosity
Leon facing El Gigante in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

True horror is something no human wants to experience. Few would actively want to throw themselves in a powerless position against some life-threatening situation or fearsome creature. Isn’t it much easier to watch these things through the TV screen with scary movies or auditory creepypastas? It's through that outside curiosity that humanity has created so many ways to witness nightmares without having to really put ourselves through actual hell. And one of those ways is through video games, one of the most interactive and immersive ways to take terror trips in a much safer way.
