Silent Hill for Wii Official

Following recent rumors, Konami confirmed on Monday that the Silent Hill horror franchise is coming to Nintendo Wii.

Konami Digital Entertainment VP of marketing Anthony Crouts describes Silent Hill: Shattered Memories as a "re-imagining of the original Silent Hill."

The game is also coming to PSP and PS2, and is due this fall.

Aside from "an interactive user interface, improved puzzle system, and a psych profile that changes the experience based on the players’ gameplay choices," the Wii version of the game will use the Wii Remote as a flashlight and a "cell phone" that is used as a storytelling device, among other functions.

Series composer Akira Yamaoka is writing an all-new soundtrack for the game.

The first Silent Hill debuted on the original PlayStation in 1999, spawning five follow-ups and a critically-panned 2006 film.

The most recent Silent Hill release was 2008′s Silent Hill: Homecoming, developed by external developer Double Helix Games. Previous Silent Hills were developed by Konami’s Team Silent.

Konami confirmed to Edge that Climax, the studio behind 2007′s Silent Hill: Origins is developing this latest iteration of the series.

Update: Added developer confirmation.
