One of the pillars of Konami’s console platform fell a long time ago with the P.T. plug pull; the pillar just got sanded down into dust now as Konami announces their next Silent Hill project; a collaborative effort with Takasago to bring about a magnificent, brooding and compelling slot machine game.

Can’t help but notice there’s no inkling of the game being a slot machine game right?
