Silent Hill: Book of Memories trailer concerns me

I'm usually against the guy that's resistant to change, but I don't love where Konami is letting the Silent Hill franchise go to. 

Here's what Tomm Hulett, Senior Associate Producer for upcoming PS Vita game Silent Hill: Book of Memories, says in this new trailer for the game:

Book of Memories is a big departure for the series, focusing on cooperative multiplayer action rather than traditional psychological horror.

That sentence alone is scarier than any horror moment in any of the franchise games. I was already concerned when I heard the game would be a top-down multiplayer affair, but now that I've seen this early game footage I feel dirty.

Hulett says that "fans needn't worry." How could we not worry? Seeing area attacks, hit points flying up and the re-usage of old character assets (again!) has me really worried. You think cashing in on another Pyramid Head appearance is a selling point? 

Maybe this game would be good if it was something else that wasn't all up in the Silent Hill world, abusing its history.
