Konami has revealed a Silent Hill Pachinko machine at a recent press event in Japan.
The event included Nurse mannequins, dark rooms, boarded up windows and an arcade machine...
Yup! from the build up alone you would expect something bigger, something better but instead Konami have revealed that Silent Hill has been made into an Pachinko arcade machine.
From the information and images released it would appear the game is called 3.0 or Silent Hill 3.0.
A teaser and full trailer for the machine has been uploaded to youtube (see below) and a number of photos posted online.
We all know this isn't the first time Konami has released an arcade game for Silent Hill. Sure this is a slot machine and Silent Hill The Arcade was a first person shoot em up, so the differences are high but it's still an arcade game. The full trailer actually doesn't look too bad if you remove the entire arcade machine bits and stick to video only... sure the characters don't look as good as in SH2 but lets be real here, it's a slot machine, so Konami isn't really looking for amazing graphics.
As to whether this will be released outside of Japan is yet to be revealed but I won't be rushing out to my nearest arcade if it is.
