Silent Hill 5 will spell a return to Silent Hill 2's direction and character behavior, according to series composer and SH4 producer Akira Yamaoka.
Apparently, SH5 will be closer to SH2 "in the terms of the way the player is directed and the character's behavior." The camera style will also revert back to the traditional setup, instead of sharing the over-the-shoulder view from upcoming PSP adventure Silent Hill: Origins.
Which ought to be great news for any fans hoping for a return to the series' earlier, eerier and less run-and-bludgeon style gameplay.
Yamaoka also revealed that the latest installment in the much loved survival horror franchise will head to next-gen consoles "like PS3 and Xbox 360," during an interview with German games mag GamePro.
