Update #2: RelyOnHorror has provided a response from Konami’s North American PR regarding their original rumor: Konami Claims Recent Silent Hill Rumors Are False:
“We’re aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm that they are not true. I know it’s not the answer your fans may want to hear,” said the Konami US PR rep. It’s not to say we are completely closing the door on the franchise, just not in the way it is being reported.”
It remains to be seen in what way Silent Hill will make a return, but does seem that the detail of Sony and Kojima getting to work on it could’ve been too good to be true. Then again, it could be that PR is just not ready to announce pending deals in progress, or that they were in talks for such a deal but it might not work out in the final stages.
3 New Assassin’s Creed Games, a 44 Minute Bloodborne Playthrough, and much more are discussed in today’s RGN Daily News as we dissect just exactly how far Ubisoft is willing to go to make a buck at the expense of their most beloved franchise. The Xbox and PlayStation platforms get their April lineups announced in regard to free games being made available for paid subscribers of Live GOLD and PS Plus respectively. Check out the latest Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay footage and our thoughts on what’s going on with Konami dumping the Kojima Productions name from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain as well as Silent Hills which seems all but gutted from Hideo Kojima’s influence although they appear to be sticking with the FOX Engine logo on the box art for now.
Mixed feelings come up when we speak about the Super Mario 64 HD Fan Remake being banned. In a perfect world we’d love all HD Fan Remakes to survive, but Nintendo is actively working with the Mario IP still so from a legal stance this just can’t fly. Atari on the other hand are jerks for blocking the spiritual successor to Tempest, which we also discuss and use as an example to draw comparisons from on the Super Mario situation. Alan Wake Lifetime Sales are revealed, a new Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition PS4 Bundle is seen for the first time, and Metal Gear Solid: The Movie is still happening.
