Next Silent Hill heading to arcades

Konami has revealed the next installment in the much-loved Silent Hill survival horror series... and it's heading for the arcade.

Silent Hill: The Arcade, as it's called, is apparently a "gun shooting game" (Silent Hill: Gun Survivor?) with a black and moody arcade cabinet that in all likelihood will never see the light of day in the west. Graphically it's not looking too impressive either, which at least suggests that the core Silent Hill team is bustling away on a new console installment.

There's not many more details other than that at the moment, but as always, we'llput up the first official screens when they reach our side of the internet.
