PAX Prime 2012: Silent Hill: Book of Memories screens

Silent Hill: Book of Memories, Konami’s PlayStation Vita-exclusive entry in the venerable horror franchise, marks a radical departure for the series with the introduction of a multiplayer component.

Unlike previous games, where players explore and battle through the town solo, Book of Memories sees gamers teaming up for some co-op-based action, with players required to work together to overcome riddles and vanquish the town’s demonic residence.

Konami has released a fresh batch of screenshots on the game for your viewing pleasure as part of Book of Memories’ appearance at PAX Prime 2012 over the weekend.

Check out a taster shot below then shine the flashlight over our Book of Memories gallery to view the full batch. The game itself is due out in October.
