Top-down. Top-down multiplayer. Fine for convertibles or strippers, but for the Silent Hill franchise?

At their gamescom press conference, Konami showed off their newest Silent Hill game, Book of Memories, made by WayForward for the PS Vita. It was revealed to be a top-down, isometric perspective view game, and not the typical third-person, over-the-shoulder view.

The crazy doesn't stop there! Joystiq says that Harry, Maria and James are in the same game. Mind blown. And so is the Silent Hill storyline, apparently. You'll also be able to create your own protagonist in this game that features melee combat, guns and some RPG elements. 

What in the what?
