The Game Rating and Administration Committee (GRAC) of Korea has rated a new and mysterious Silent Hill game called Silent Hill: The Short Message. Platforms were not specified, but the title will be published by UNIANA, the publisher behind eFootball 2023 and other Konami games, according to GRAC’s listing.
From an IGN report:
The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea (via Gematsu) has given a rating to the previously unannounced Silent Hill: The Short Message. Unfortunately, it’s not known what this new game is, or even what platforms it will appear on. Some have speculated that the title could allude to a playable teaser, not unlike PT, the last mainline Silent Hill release.
Silent Hill was originally released for the PS One in 1999 and tells the story of Harry Mason – a man searching for his missing adopted daughter in the titular fictional American town. The survival horror was a huge hit, spawning numerous sequels and spin-offs over the years.
Silent Hill fans are keeping their expectations in check, with some speculating that this could merely be a mobile or pachinko title. Leaks from earlier this year have suggested that Konami could be readying a new and significant entry to the franchise, however.
