Konami is announcing a mystery game at Tokyo Game Show, and fans of Castlevania, Metal Gear, Silent Hill, and Suikoden are bracing themselves for disappointment. The reveal will come on September 16 as part of a 45-minute long segment, which voice actor Yuki Kaji will host.
What new game is Konami revealing at TGS?
Konami’s official TGS line-up describes the mystery game presentation as:
Voice actor Yuki Kaji is invited to represent fans of a world-famous series and announce a new Konami release on stage.
Kaji has voiced characters in two Suikoden games, which initially made us think that series might finally be getting a revival. However, the way the above description is worded makes us think it’s not a series he necessarily has been a part of in the past.
Given Konami’s extensive catalog, it’s hard to predict which series will be making a comeback. Despite multiple rumors of Metal Gear and Silent Hill revivals over the years, the company has kept mum about its plans for those series.
Silent Hill is the most likely candidate among the usual suspects. Multiple games are rumored to be in development, including one from Bloober Team and another from Annapurna Interactive.
However, Konami owns a dizzying amount of IPs. We could see a new game from any one of these franchises:
- Azure Dreams
- Dance Dance Revolution
- Lethal Enforcers
- Metal Gear
- Pop’n Music
- Poy Poy
- Silent Hill
- Silent Scope
- Sound Voltex
- Sunset Riders
- Tiny Toon Adventures
- Tokimeki Memorial
- Vandal Hearts
- Zone of the Enders
Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Maybe this game will be the one that finally redeems Konami in the eyes of gamers.
