Konami continued to tease us today at the Tokyo Game Show, releasing another promotional video for the upcoming Silent Hills. Whereas the original interactive teaser shown at E3 2014 seemed to be aimed at catching our eye with the big name announcements of Hollywood director Guillermo Del Toro aboard the production, and The Walking Dead’s fan favourite Norman Reedus giving his likeness to the star role, this new material focuses squarely on letting us know that we will be playing this from behind the sofa.
Despite only being a short trailer, coming in at just under two minutes, we are pretty much shown everything that's guaranteed to evoke some kind of primal fear within even the most avid horror fan. The footage places us in a derelict dark house, while the faint noise of children’s laughter echoes around. What starts off as just slightly chilling quickly descends into a total nightmare on screen; maggots coming out of the walls, ghostly bloodied handprints and a decapitation all follow in quick succession in what is a frantic and adrenaline-fuelled couple of minutes.
