Konami TGS game reveal is still to happen. Apparently rated 18+? There is some confusion over whether +18 いいえ literally mean "not 18+" or whether that generally means "restricted to 18+ older."

Dusk Golem is saying repeatedly he doesn't believe SH will be revealed at TGS either.

Aren't the signs pointing towards it being Suikoden?

I still think we're going to see a full Playstation showcase before the end of the month and we might see Silent Hill there.

Yeah, Suikoden was the most likely thing, though it the "over 18" age mention that is throwing us off... The series has historically been rated as suitable for teen audiences. An 18+ rating in Japan is usually reserved for more violent or mature content or sexy, or straight up horror games.

Konami, the mystery game of TGS 2022 is rated CERO Z 18+
https://www.aroged.com/2022/09/14/konam ... cero-z-18/
Konami will announce a mysterious game at TGS 2022, and apparently the title in question is classified CERO Z 18+, the equivalent of our PEGI 18: difficult may it be the return of Suikoden.

...

These latest developments, inevitably, bring this possibility back into vogue, although nothing is certain yet nor are there any legitimate leaks linked to the presentation that will be broadcast on September 16 at 8.30 am.

Dusk Golem pointed out that the CERO Z classification is usually used for horror games, those that include disturbing visual elements such as blood and dismemberments, see for example the Resident Evil episodes.
It is possible they could low key announce only 'Sakura'... and play coy that it has any relation to SH in spite of the leaks.

Double post Breaking bump...

Something is going down from Kojima Productions... An ARG?

Is this concept finally coming into play???
Image

Apparently Kojima is testing some VR thing for TGS after all? But earlier they said they weren't going... or maybe he just means his studio won't specifically have a booth there, But something of theirs could be shown elsewhere...

*Clarification: They will have a booth there for merchandise and an 'online booth', but specifically, no game titles will be "announced" at TGS...

This could be related to whatever Overdose is... the woman could be Margaret Qualley. I wonder if it is a CG render...

My gut is telling me this game is close. In some ways it's felt close for almost 11 years, but recently it feels like an announcement really is around the corner, especially as we get closer to Christmas. It seems very Konami to try and capitalize on the holiday season. Come on baby, give us that reveal!

Seems that Kojima's girl may also be Elle Fanning.

Some images if the VR experience, which can also be freely downloaded and played with a keyboard/mouse.

I think trying to tie that new Kojima teaser to Sakura is a bit of a stretch, but I could be wrong.

Here is the link to Konami upcoming stream of their secret game.
https://youtu.be/DAzjwEjnFDs

Then they have some general show coming up.

That the mystery game is getting its own separate thing means Konami is trying to make a focus on it.

Speculation on the Kojima teaser has people examining the symbol, with some believing the style resembles the symbols used in Death Stranding, suggesting this is Death Stranding 2. That Kojima is having online meetings with more creative's such as Jordan Peele also suggests his big game is DS2 as leaked by Norman Reedus. So then, what is Overdose? Is that his smaller project? The one mentioned before the Microsoft Cloud deal?

No confusion. It's "not 18+". In contrast, the Microsoft one is for 18+.

Ah okay.

Well, tuned into the live-stream now and, yep, it is Suikoden. And not a new game, but an HD remaster... oh Konami...

Meanwhile, Kojima is signing the Who Am I poster for some reason... further evidence that it is a render? EITHER that or it is also the title of the actual game... :P
https://twitter.com/Kojima_Hideo/status ... 1763003392

The pose he makes could be a reference to a scene from Lycoris Recoil episode 4. The poster is also on his T-shirt, so it is definitely part of a marketing campaign that is teasing his next thing.

Professional comedians couldn't have written a better punch-line than that announcement.

I no longer believe a SH revival is happening. It may have been considered at some point but until I actually see something confirmed to be real, I am no longer persuaded it's anything but a pipe dream.

No one was expecting it to show up at TGS. Game Awards or a PS showcase have way more probability of an appearance.

Agreed. Signs were pointing towards this being Suikoden for a while.

If we do get to the end of the year and nothing is announced by then, I'm going to assume that the projects that leaked are dead and any active Silent Hill revival is currently in very early stages or hasn't been started yet.

Yoshida of Square Enix said a new FFXVI trailer will come next month with a final release date. More hints of another Sony event in October?

It's also possible that they'll just have a Final Fantasy showcase.

Square is more likely to do that closer to release where they can show lots of finished and final content. The only other one is FF7, but that franchise is its own thing at this point. Likely need to announce the release date for XVI for preorders etc. But they will likely focus on Diofield and Valkyrie and other smaller titles before next year.

There are rumors of a new PS5 sku with a detachable disc drive. Doubt that is a device coming this year, but Sony must be exploring avenues to get the manufacturing costs down and more devices made. Having both your digital and physical options coming off one assembly line helps...

------------------

One of the supposed leakers - TheRealInsider - accidentally revealed their identity, and also came out and admitted that they made up some bogus rumors regarding Silent Hill and MGS a little while ago, so dismiss anything they've claimed these past few days.

Seems like some recent leaks regarding SH were fake: https://gamerant.com/danallengaming-rea ... olid-fake/
