A new Silent Hill project, with the title Silent Hill Fis at work, with Higurashi: When They Cry creator Ryukishi07 attached to develop the story.
Silent Hill F was announced at Konami Silent Hill Broadcast showcase with a short, cryptic teaser. The clip does not share too much, although it seems to bring Silent Hill out of small-town America and into rural Japan. Silent Hill Fthe story is written by Ryukishi07, best known for Higurashi: When They Cry series of visual murder mystery novels. Kera is handling the character designs, which appear to have a lot of flowers in the trailer, and former Nintendo developer Motoi Okamoto is producing. Neobards Entertainment will develop the game, coming from its previous work in the horror genre with Capcom’s Resident Evil series.
The trailer follows a young girl in what appears to be rural Japan as she encounters creepy dolls and strange situations. Finally, she is overwhelmed by flowers growing all over her, and in the closing moments her face peels away. It served as one of several cryptic trailers for upcoming releases in the Silent Hills franchise, with at least three other games and a movie in the pipeline.

Both will be larger in scope than The mediumbut none of them are based on themes or premises that have circulated online in recent days.”
