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.
