Three different Silent Hill games come out in March, including HD Collection and Downpour

Though the series hasn’t had a new game in some time, we’re currently on the verge of an avalanche of Silent Hill titles. After several delays it looked like 2012 would begin with three months straight of Silent Hill games. Then that fell apart with the delay of Silent Hill HD and with another delay for the PS Vita Silent Hill, it now appears Konami is gambling that gamers worldwide are so starved for Silent Hill, they have the appetite for three different new releases this March.

The foggy onslaught begins on March 6 with the long-awaited launch of Silent Hill HD Collection for 360 and PS3, which includes fancier versions of Silent Hill 2 and 3. After spending quality time with Hills of old, on March 13 comes the PS3/360 launch of the brand new adventure Silent Hill Downpour. The month ends with Silent Hill: Book of Memories on the PS Vita coming March 27, which is a unique top down adventure developed by WayForward.

Based on the multiple delays all these games have faced, here’s hoping Konami can actually stick to these dates. In the meantime, we recently had a few guided playthroughs with the Silent Hill devs on these games. Take a look:

    I want all of these. But I do not own any of the stations and not interested in the Vita at all. Oh well. Hope for a PC release on some of those >.>

    not a good business move at first glance. but then,if you think about it, March will be this Silent Hill explosion with tons of coverage on the series. the franchise will own that month and put it right back on the map. people who were uninitiated with the series will all of a sudden be so aware of it that they'll be more likely to give it a chance. so....pretty cool business move.

    Hearing him says it's based on dreams with randomly generated dungeons, kinda reminds me of this old PS1 game called "LSD: Dream Emulator", which was apparently based of a man's dream diary. The game had a couple of different reoccurring locations with random strange textures and music and no clear objective, but it's still interesting to watch/play despite the incredibly dated graphics.

    Yeah, seems a little odd to put them all out at once. That said, I'll probably get HD Collection and Downpour.

    It really isnt... I was ready to enjoy Silent Hill 2 and 3 throughout January and February then pickup Downpour in March.
