Some Updates

I haven’t posted about actual games on the horizon lately, so here’s some quick updates:

  • I could have sworn Silent Hill: 0rgins was on the fast-track to cancellation, but this new GameInformer article proves me wrong. It looks like this game might actually ship! Via Kotaku.
  • A Wii version of Resident Evil 4 has been announced. There’s some videos available, and it looks pretty cool (Wiimote aiming!).
  • A new Resident Evil rail-shooter called The Umbrella Chronicles is also headed for Wii. Check out the official site (contains video) to get an idea of what to expect.
  • Possession, the RTS-meets-zombie game from Blitz, is apparently on hold. That’s usually the mark of death in this industry, but hopefully that game eventually sees the light of day.
  • Sadness, another game that I expect to never be published, has switched developers. I wouldn’t hold your breath for this one.

Update: Here’s some interesting comments by Akira Yamaoka on how Silent Hill 5 will mostly resemble Silent Hill 2, rather than 3, 4, or 0rgins. Whoo-hoo!

Update #2: Whoa, all of a sudden the horror game frequency is abuzz with activity! First, there is a new Alone in the Dark 5 in-engine trailer over at Kotaku. Also, one of you guys posted this link to new Obscure screens. Thanks for the info!

  1. So those comments about SH5, does that mean SH5 will be a clean break with the series or will it retcon the entire series, again?

  2. That’s some very interesting info about Silent Hill 5 indeed. Silent Hill 2 = my fav survival horror game.
