Silent Hill Origins and Shattered Memories coming to PS Vita

Konami is to release Silent Hill: Origins and Silent Hill Shattered Memories via the PlayStation Network for PlayStation Vita.

Previously available for Sony’s PSP, the two games are priced at just £7.99 each and will be dated soon.

Silent Hill: Origins acts as a prequel to the series and follows Travis Grady, a truck driver, as he enters the mist-shrouded town to dig up information on a girl he rescued from a fire. Silent Hill: Origins uses the series’ famed third-person perspective to trail Travis as he explores the seemingly abandoned town, collecting items to help him in his search. As he ventures further into the town, however, memories of his childhood haunt him – and then the monsters come out…

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories retains the premise of the first game – Harry Mason’s search for his missing daughter – but has a plot that changes dependent on the use. The game is framed by a visit to a psychotherapist, wherein the user is asked questions – while the characters Harry meets in the game will also react differently depending on how they are approached, the questions they are asked, or how Harry interacts with them physically.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories also removes all combat elements from the game, with players forced to flee when the town’s inhuman denizens give chase, adding a nightmarish quality to the game and the impression that danger lurks in ever dark corner.

The games are both being labelled as re-issues, so we are presuming that there will be no change to the original assets seen on PSP.

Been some miscommunication going on it appears. This is literally just the PSP versions of these games being put up on the US PSN store. They're not Vita games... just PSP games playable on Vita. Disappointed.

Ever hear that one about the guy who commented on a story about a handheld game? turns out he doesn't like handhelds...
