Fan Feedback Wins; Silent Hill HD to Offer Original and New Voice Overs

November 22, 2011 Written by Jonathan Leack

When Konami announced that they’re following the high-definition re-release trends with a Silent Hill HD Collection, fans of the terrifying series were quick to show their excitement. However, after a sample was released which displayed the new audio recordings for Silent Hill 2, the excitement quickly dissipated. As a result, Konami’s management has re-thought their design.

Tomm Hulett and Devin Shatsky of Konami have announced that the Silent Hill HD Collection will allow players to choose whether to use the original voice overs or the new recordings in Silent Hill 2. They even shared that the thousands of petition signers are what made the change happen, showing the importance of fan feedback.

The Silent Hill HD Collection will contain Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3, two of the most well-received titles in the horror series, along with a new 720P visuals and trophies to unlock. The collection will release on January 24th, and will kick off yet another great year of games.
