Silent Hill: Book of Memories Fogged with Delay
Despite Vita owners anticipating the multiplayer scare-fest for their handhelds on March 27th – what some call tomorrow – a new (likely placeholder) date, May 31st, has emerged on Gamefly and Amazon’s listings for the game that suggest the title has been pushed.
Developed by WayForward Technologies (responsible for that superb Metroid-vania Aliens game you didn’t play and the side-scrolling Bloodrayne sequel that you may have), was slated to complete this months Silent Hill themed trinity of releases started with Downpour and the HD Collection. So far, those titles have been met by fans and critics alike with a mixed bag of embrace and venomous rejection all at once. If Book of Memories fell short in the slightest, Konami might be playing it close to the chest on this Vita spinoff for fear of vitriol.
The publisher has made no official announcement regarding the delay, but if you go to your favorite game retailer tomorrow and don’t leave with a copy of BoM, you’ll know that the Old Gods have intervened.
UPDATE: Konami confirmed the delay, asking fans to be patient for more info.
