In an interview with Siliconera, Dave Cox, producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, mentioned that he would like to see Konami give the Silent Hill series the reboot treatment:
Since Cox made it clear that Contra is the main series he would like to revive, I asked him what other Konami franchises could use the same kind of refresh.
“I guess Silent Hill would be the obvious one. Sometimes a series needs a little break. Sometimes it needs to have fresh eyes, a new team to come in and bring their creative vision to it. Perhaps, Silent Hill will be a project Konami that can bring back,” Cox said. “It’s not something that I would be particularly interested in doing myself. I’m more of an old school guy. I grew up with Castlevania and Contra is what made want to work at Konami at the end of the day. They are my passions. I’d like to see Konami do some new stuff, bring something new to the table. I think next generation offers great opportunities to do new things.”
What do you guys think? Do you think Silent Hill needs a reboot?
Personally, I don’t think it does considering all the news games lately are their own contained stories… but with that said, I think a reboot could be fun. It would be interesting to see how they could re-imagine Silent Hill maybe they could show the town during the cult’s hey day before Alessa’s burning?
