Konami has finally put a firm date on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for the Wii — December 8. How appropriate, considering the game’s icy setting.
If your arms tire out easily, but you still wanted to get your Silent Hill on, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. The game is also slated to hit PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable, but those versions won’t see release until sometime later. Yes, that’s all of the info we have. Konami actually said they will be “following shortly.” One week? A month? A year? The term “shortly” is relative.
While you wait, you can hit the jump to check out character bios for the collection of malcontent weirdos that will appear Shattered Memories, straight from Konami.
