Silent Hill: Downpour cover features Spanish typo

Wednesday, 14th March 2012 22:03 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Gathered around a campfire, publishers whisper scary stories to each other, and none is more frightening than The Curse of the Survival Horror Typo.

Kotaku‘s got an image of the Silent Hill: Downpour cover with a typo in the Spanish byline.

It should say “who can stop the rain?” but instead asks the observer “who can stop this Finnish municipality?” Good question; won’t someone think of the children?

This is the second high profile box art typo in the last few months, following on from Resident Evil: Revelations. At least it’s not in the title this time.

Silent Hill: Downpour is out now in the US and arrives in Europe at the end of the month, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    I’d imagine european covers for games have had typos for years, god knows most of the translation in european games is probably half assed.
