Rumor: Three New Silent Hill Games in the Works

It’s been 12 years since the release of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories launched on Nintendo Wii. In the years since, the series has popped up on other platforms, most infamously Hideo Kojima and Gillermo del Toro’s beloved P.T. (playable teaser), a prelude to the duo’s canceled Silent Hills project. Now, after years lying in virtual dormancy, rumors have begun swirling that Konami is prepping a whopping three Silent Hill projects.

According to VGC, the projects entail a proper sequel in the series is in the works for current-gen hardware, a remake of Silent Hill 2, and a smaller scale episodic experience. That latter project might be the most likely to come to Switch given the console’s relative lack of processing power compared to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Take all of this with a grain of salt as nothing has been confirmed, but it’s been so long since Silent Hill has been a proper franchise that fans will likely take whatever they can get at this point.

Metroid Dread is the Best-Selling Entry in the Series

Metroid Dread was a smash-hit of a success with critics, but even among fans the game has garnered a lot of love and admiration. So much so that it has officially become the highest selling entry in the series to date. This illustrious position was previously held by another beloved installment in the franchise: the original Metroid Prime on GameCube.

The news comes from Nintendo of Japan’s latest Fiscal Year Report for March 2022. At 2.9 millions units sold, that puts Metroid Dread ahead of Metroid Prime by about 60,000 sales. This is wonderful news for fans of Samus Aran, as hopefully the success of Dread will mean Nintendo continues to have faith in 2D series installments as well as 3D ones.

Speaking of 3D Metroid games, there is still no word on when Metroid Prime 4 will finally be shown off in any capacity, but that’s a story for another day. Meanwhile, Metroid Dread continues to delight fans with new content, as a couple of free updates are available for the game. If you have yet to check them out for yourself, be sure to update the game and give them a try.

Kingdom Eighties: Season Of Greed Announcement Trailer

Kingdom Eighties: Season Of Greed Announcement Trailer

The eighties is definitely big right now, so it isn’t all that surprising that games have been adopting the eighties aesthetic into their art design. Now it’s Raw Fury’s turn with today’s announcement trailer…Kingdom Eighties: Season of Greed! The trailer didn’t reveal much in the realm of game play, but it is sure to be another masterpiece. Raw Fury’s official website promises “a story driven love letter to 1980’s Americana, but which is still very much a Kingdom game.”

Previous Kingdom games were a bit dearth in the story department, which is definitely not a bad thing. Yet, since game play can only be tweaked so much, adding story to the mix is a natural development for the series.

The first Kingdom, now called Kingdom Classic, was originally developed by Noio and Licorice, then published by Raw Fury. The developers went on to polish their initial concept and released  Kingdom: New Lands before handing off development to Raw Fury Studios. Since then, Raw Fury, Coatsink, and Stumpy Squid released Kingdom: Two Crowns with two subsequent updates and DLC. You can read our review of it here.

Ocarina of Time Inducted Into the World Video Game Hall of Fame

The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York is an internationally lauded institution. Every year since 2015 the museum has inducted video games into its World Video Game Hall of Fame. For 2022, the class included arguably one of the greatest games ever made: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

The 1998 Nintendo 64 classic would seem a shoe in to be among the games in the Strong’s hall of fame, but better late than never we always say. Ocarina of Time is renowned for its advancements in gameplay, including its pioneering lock-on mechanics, contextual button inputs, and cinematic storytelling. The game is joined by Ms. Pac-Man, Sid Meier’s Civilization, and Dance Dance Revolution.
