Silent Hill: Origins and Shattered Memories headed to Vita

What fresh horror is this?

PSP scarefests Silent Hill: Origins and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories are getting a digital release on PlayStation Vita, publisher Konami has announced.

An exact date for the pair has yet to be revealed, but they'll cost £7.99 apiece.

Shattered Memories' revival is especially pleasing - the adventure is one of the series' high points and sees the original Silent Hill game re-imagined to fit around the player's choices.

"Packed with inventive ideas and one engaging sequence after another, it's a spirited, poignant and unsettling game that not only delivers a long-overdue return to form, but reinvigorates horror adventures in the process," Kristan Reed wrote of the game's Wii version back in 2009.

Origins, meanwhile, serves as a prequel to the first game. It's less impressive than Shattered Memories - more of a stopgap for the series - but still an enjoyable experience if you're a fan.

"And even if you're not an aficionado, scary and intriguing survival horror titles such as these don't come along very often - least of all on the PSP," Kristan opined further back still, in 2007.
