In a recent official press release, Konami announced its lineup for Tokyo Games Show. Although the lineup has some familiar games like Yu-Gi-oh and eFootball, there is one particular thing that catches the eye. The lineup has listed an unannounced Konami title. The description of the title states that it would be a new entry in a ‘world’s beloved series’. With that in mind, there can be many possibilities for what it could mean. The game will be shown on September 16th in a stage event.
The only legitimate information we have is that the unannounced game is definitely a Konami-owned franchise and is world-renowned. Franchises like Silent Hill, Castlevania and Metal Gear all fit into that category. These franchises have received universal acclaim from fans and critics alike. But of them, Silent Hill definitely has a great opportunity.
Earlier this year, screenshots of what appeared to be a new Silent Hill game were leaked onto the internet. These photos were quickly taken down on Twitter and that would at least give them legitimacy regarding this. After the critically acclaimed PT demo, fans wanted a proper Silent Hill game from Konami. But after Hideo Kojima’s departure from the company, there was no news of a Silent Hill until the screenshot leak. Maybe this is the game Konami is going to reveal.
Then again, Metal Gear could also be another series that Konami would be willing to revive. After the release of the negatively received Metal Gear Survive, Konami might be looking for a fresh start with this series as well. So we might get Solid Snake back, or it might be a whole new character and story. For now, we will have to wait and see what they will announce.
