Silent Hill: Book of Memories gets top-down screens

Here are some screenshots of Silent Hill: Book of Memories, showing some pictures of people doing things in the dark. The usually tight and claustrophobic Silent Hill looks very odd with such a withdrawn camera perspective, but variety is the spice of life I suppose. 

I must say, the graphics aren’t impressing me. Looks like it could easily run on the 3DS or original PSP. Hardly shows off the graphical might of the PS Vita.

What do you think? Might this be an interesting new take on the franchise, or should Konami have kept it more traditional on the Vita? Personally, I don’t think they can screw the series up anymore than they have done, so they might as well do what they like now.
