Rumour: Climax working on Silent Hill remake for Wii

Thursday, 26th February 2009 10:22 GMT By Patrick Garratt


VG247 understands that UK developer Climax is working on a Wii remake of an the first Silent Hill.

Konami has declined to comment on the talk.

Few specifics are known as yet, but apparently motion control’s been included for torch functions.

The first Silent Hill, designed by Keiichiro Toyama, was released for PlayStation in 1999.

Climax is working on two Konami games, as shown on the firm’s website. The remake is the Wii and PSP project you can see there.

A 360 and PS3 game is also in the works for Konami, but this is an “original ground breaking next-gen game,” according to a Climax job posting.

Climax was unavailable for comment at the time of writing. You didn’t see us here, right?

    Hot! Would’ve been hotter if it’d been a 360/PS3 game, though. Hopefully they’ll resist the temptation to make it all waggly.

    Seems a bit weird that they’ve left this so long, tbh – people were crying out for a remake back in the PS2 days.

    “Wii and PSP project” – don’t expect this to be making the most out of the former.

    They’re all working on other projects. I don’t think they were ever a proper ‘team’ as such, they were just a collection of people who worked on the games. When they weren’t working on SH, they were working on other stuff.

    The PS2 port of Origins wasn’t too bad, Hero. Not ideal, but moderately upgraded from the PSP original.

    If I wanted to see a climax and wanking off a dead horse I’ll go to site’s dedicated to the cause.

    Oh for fuck’s sake.

    I’m going to draw a line, videogame industry. And beyond that line, there shall be no further Wii remakes.

    Hmmm, so where did it say this is a Silent Hill REMAKE and not just another Silent Hill game? I mean to begin with it was a GUESS at Silent Hill since the previous PSP game but the job listings for horror always said for the 360/PS3 which isn’t a Wii.
