Here's some new screens for Silent Hill: Book of Memories. Add them to the batch we got a glimpse of earlier this month, and you get a good idea of the direction the PlayStation Vita title looks to take the series. That direction's an unexpectedly colorful one, with the game adopting a flashier look than the series' customary drab palettes. You'll still be fending off skinless monstrosities with rusty weapons, though – Silent Hill's developers may be disturbed, but they're not crazy.

If the look of these screens puts you in mind of arcade actioners like Gauntlet Legends, that's because developer WayForward Technologies has openly stated it'll be taking a more action-oriented tack when it launches the series on Vita. Responsible for previous reinventions in a similar vein such as the Wii's A Boy and his Blob, the DS version of Contra and this year's BloodRayne Betrayal, WayForward's Silent Hill brings multiplayer to the series for the first time. Associate producer Tomm Hulett says the game will mark “a big departure for the series,” which is set to launch in February of next year – the same month as its host platform.

    Oh, Silent Hill. Easily one of my favorite video game franchises of all time...but...but the way you're going right now...the DIRECTION...well...I'm afraid that happy relationship may soon come to an end. And that is so very...REGRETTABLE. But worry not, Silent Hill 1-4 and even Shattered Memories and a little of Origin shall forever be remembered!

    My first reaction is hesitant. I hope it ends up a good game.
