Konami has pushed the release date of the Silent Hill HD Collection back until March; more specifically it relocates the game to a release of 16th March. Curiously, it’s in the same release window of the series’ latest incantation “Downpour.”
The Silent Hill HD Collection contains both the second and third releases, in true HD graphics (720p) and bringing the series to the Xbox for the first time. Trophy support and achievements will also be included bringing fans new and old alike back into the fray for another journey into Silent Hill. Read below to learn about the two titles:
Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams follows the sad story of James Sunderland as he woefully enters the sleepy town by a mysterious letter from his deceased wife. Seeking the chance to see her again; beckoned by guilt and remorse, he stumbles upon his fears manifested through unseen evil and ominous characters leading him to the asylum of another world. Fighting against the truth that his wife has died, James must escape the lumbering demon Red Pyramid (a.k.a Pyramid Head) along with his mystified fears that have taken the form of living monsters within the haze that is Silent Hill.
Serving as a sequel to the original Silent Hill game, Silent Hill 3 centers on the forces of the demonic cult that spreads the insanity of the otherworld through Claudia, a cult member attempting to bring Harry Mason’s daughter, Heather, into Silent Hill. With a subplot and themes involving the loss of innocence and childhood, a web of intrigue is spun by Claudia with intentions to birth a new god.
