Why Isn’t Silent Hill 4 In Silent Hill HD Collection?
Silent Hill HD Collection is only a compilation of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3. Silent Hill 4: The Room was left out and being curious I asked Silent Hill series producer Tomm Hulett why.
"We really wanted to focus on what we knew fans cared the most about since we needed to put in the effort to put them in HD, redo the sound, and do all these things, we didn’t want to give them something we weren’t sure they wanted 100%," Hulett answered.
Silent Hill 4 takes place in a room in South Ashfield, a town close to Silent Hill, where Henry Townshend is trapped in his apartment with nightmares. While Henry cannot leave the room, he wanders into the Otherworld and doesn’t need a flashlight or pocket radio to warn him that monsters are coming.
"If you’re a Silent Hill fan you either love 2 or 3 the best. Here, you get both of them. Everyone’s happy. If they like the HD treatment, maybe there’s more in the future, but for now that’s all we’re concentrating on," Hulett continued.
Speaking of the the HD treatment, here’s a sample of the new voice acting in Silent Hill HD Collection.
