    Siren coming to PlayStation Network next week

    The SIREN project started in the autumn months of the new 21st century. I was very fortunate to have been surrounded by a very talented team of people on my team. Together with Game Director Keiichiro Toyama, Scenario Writer Naoko Sato, and Art Director Isao Takahashi, I sat down to discuss concepts. We then extended the discussions to excellent creators both internally and externally for a collaborative production effort.



    We were on a mission to formulate a form of fear or horror that would resonate with an audience regardless of their cultural background, and to deliver that from a very intentionally Japanese perspective. Thorough studies sprung our inspirations, which then became our core for producing SIREN. No room for compromise, but plenty of room for the sense of playful creativity, we progressed to develop a Japanese Modern Horror that could reach out and be appreciated by the world. The feeling of hopelessness caused by close ones, who, one by one are transformed into your enemy, the dreadful or creepy feeling of seeing yourself through the eyes of others, and an environment unique to SIREN that pulled you right in all led to the bloodcurdling experience that only a game could take you through.

    SIREN enjoyed a worldwide release along with sequential releases, and expansions into a movie, novel and other forms of multimedia, something that I along with the team are very grateful for. The most memorable moment was being approached by the master of horror movies, Sam Raimi, with an offer to make a movie based on SIREN. I must say this was a very rewarding moment for all of us who had worked very hard to make SIREN what it was.





    I am delighted that SIREN will be published on PSN. Over time, SIREN is now re-introduced to a whole new audience. It is gratifying to know the experience can potentially reach out even further. This not only makes me happy, I am sure this will be quite motivating for everyone who was involved in the SIREN project to further excel in what they do in hope of delivering new and exciting content.

    How long can you withstand the world of SIREN?

    Dang, I like this news a lot! I've only played Siren: Blood Curse and enjoyed it. Might be the first ps2 game I consider buying on PSN.

    Is it? I just thought it was the third game, but instead of calling it Siren 3 they called it Blood Curse. Was Siren even released in the US? My memory is pretty vague on it all.

    I hope that for the ps4, we don't see ps3 games being sold slowly at a higher price!!

    Every version better be backwards compatible!

    It better have backwards compatibility to some degree, or else I'll be sticking with my PS3 for quite a while.

    Yeah and some members of the team are from Team Silent who did SH1-3. They should do a new horror IP and bring back the SH vibe.

    They should but Toyama pretty much confirmed a sequel to Gravity Rush a couple months ago. I think it'd be a while before we see another survival horror title from them.
