European PS Vita owners will soon be able to experience two notable survival horror titles from the past: Silent Hill: Origins and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. The games will be downloadable releases that cost £8 each, or just shy of $14 U.S.

Silent Hill: Origins was first released on the PlayStation Portable back in 2007, and then received a PlayStation 2 port the following year. In the game you control protagonist Travis Grady as he searches for a girl he rescued from a burning house after she mysteriously disappears. The deeper into the town you go, the greater the horrors you discover. Origins is a prequel to the original Silent Hill game, first released back in 1999, and it takes place years before the PSone original.  

The second game, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories was originally released on Nintendo’s Wii in 2009, with PS2 and PSP versions following in 2010. Shattered Memories takes the story of the original game and reimagines it with a new plot. You once again step into the shoes of the original game’s protagonist Harry Mason as he searches the town of Silent Hill for his missing daughter, but events play out differently, with new characters introduced, original characters significantly changed, and a wildly different approach to gameplay.

The PS Vita versions of the games have only been confirmed for Europe at the moment, although a specific release date has not yet been announced. We reached out to Konami regarding a North American release, but did not hear back at the time of this article’s publication.

Silent Hill Townfall: Release date rumors, trailers, gameplay
A blood-red beach.

Horror fans are celebrating thanks to the slew of Silent Hill announcements made in October 2022. After the crushing cancellation of P.T, fans of the iconic survival horror franchise were left wondering if the series would ever return. Now, not only are we getting a remake of what many consider the best game in the franchise, Silent Hill 2, but three other new Silent Hill titles are also on the way. While we got a decent look at the remake, the other titles are still very much a mystery.

Silent Hill Townfall is one of the most interesting and promising of these new projects. While the teaser was extremely brief and left more than a little up for speculation, there are some clues that could point to what type of game it will be. If you're ready to dive into the mysterious town of Silent Hill one more time, here's everything we know about Silent Hill Townfall.

Silent Hill fans were given more than they bargained for in October 2022. Konami hosted a Silent Hill showcase where they revealed not just one but four games in the works (along with another feature film). Outside of the Silent Hill 2 remake, the three other games are all brand-new entries in the acclaimed horror franchise. Out of all of those announcements, the one that many consider the most exciting is the mysteriously titled Silent Hill f.

While no game shown off in the showcase had more than either a teaser or short trailer, the look we got at Silent Hill f, plus some extra details that have come out, make it stand out as a major departure from the series in some very curious ways. Just like the titular town itself, Silent Hill f is hiding most of its details behind a thick layer of fog. For everything we do know about this horror title, here's a breakdown of what's been shared.

The Silent Hill series is coming back, and we’re not just getting one new game ... we’re getting four. And a new movie! And more merch!

It’s certainly more than what a lot of people would have expected when Konami announced we were getting a presentation on the series’ future last week (I’m a big series fan, and my expectations were very low). Most people were expecting a new game and a Silent Hill 2 remake based on leaks and rumors, but the series had been all but dormant since Silent Hill: Downpour in 2012, so there was no reason to expect anything more. In the past decade, Konami has used the IP on pachinko machines, skateboards, and little else.
