Report: Silent Hill resurrected by Kojima and Del Toro

Xav de Matos, @Xav

The mysterious interactive horror game Sony teased during its Gamescom press conference? It may just be a window into the future of Konami's Silent Hill franchise.

Completing the interactive teaser while streaming on Twitch, user "SoapyWarpig" unlocked a cutscene featuring a desolate town. After title cards reveal a collaboration between Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and Hellboy director Guillermo Del Toro, the camera pulls out to reveal the cutscene's only character, The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus.

Then a title card reaches into our cold dead hearts and massages them back to life with the words: Silent Hills.

Is it a game? A digital film? The greatest hoax perpetuated by man? We've asked Konami for details and our friends for a brown paper bag for us to finish hyperventilating in.

Catch the cutscene after 1 hour and 16 mins.

Kojima announcing a new product with such flair isn't out of the realm of possibility. Prior to it being known as a follow-up in the Metal Gear franchise, The Phantom Pain was teased as something very different. As for Reedus' connection with Kojima? They seem like old buddies.
