KONAMI’S MONTH OF HORROR CONTINUES WITH THE RELEASE OF SILENT HILL HD COLLECTION

Fan Favorites Silent Hill 2 & 3 Take Terror to the Next Level

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – March 20, 2012 – The month of horror continues with the second release from Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.’s survival horror defining franchise this month, Silent Hill HD Collection.  Silent Hill HD Collection combines two classic spine-chilling Silent Hill titles from the past and brings them to the PlayStation®3 for the first time ever.  Introducing Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 with enhancements including true high-definition graphics, this offering gives new fans and old fans the opportunity to experience the early era of Silent Hill as a true genre-defining experience with the added value of two games.
The re-mastered Silent Hill HD Collection takes the already frightening titles to new levels of terror with HD visuals and widescreen capabilities, creating an intensely creepy playing experience. In addition, the in-game voiceover, directed by series vocalist Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, and soundtrack score have been refreshed, enhancing the storytelling and ambient music within each re-mastered game.
“Having terrorized a generation of fans throughout the last decade, Silent Hill 2 and 3 are two titles from the Silent Hill franchise that fans can’t seem to get enough of,” said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “Silent Hill HD Collection offers an enhanced new way for fans to experience the horror of these beloved titles while introducing the origins of Silent Hill to a new generation.”

Silent Hill 2 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.  While 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.
Silent Hill HD Collection is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and is now available for purchase at retailers nationwide for an SRP of $39.99 for the Sony Playstation®3.
