Konami has been a company that most have written off lately. After the decisions to move video games towards mobile devices and slot machines, the core fans for several IPs have been left waiting with little to no hope of a bright future. It seems that every big announcement that came from Konami has been received negatively such as the E3 surprise announcement which turned out to be a PC Engine mini. Now that there have been some rumors and hints at a new Silent Hill installment, we finally got the unveiling.
Unfortunately, those who were hoping to dive back into the town of Silent Hill where you’ll have the cult and hostile creatures lurking about will be a letdown. Instead, Konami took the opportunity to work on yet another slot machine based on the Silent Hill IP. This time around it looks like it may be hitting the western markets so if you enjoy gambling and video games then perhaps this may be something you’ll be interested in playing.
As for the Silent Hill slot machine, it’s a custom build to give more of an immersion of the game IP. From the cabinet, screen and betting table, you will seemingly find a Silent Hill theme throughout. We don’t know how it looks when being played just yet, but there will be a model showcased during the Las Vegas Gaming Expo that takes place this month.
Perhaps we’ll see this game being played soon through the expo or shortly after if it’s picked up at casino resort locations. However, for most of us who are wanting a new video game to enjoy, we’re left waiting in hopes that Konami decides to go back into the IP for console and PC platforms.
