Akira Yamaoka would “be happy” to work on Silent Hills

Silent Hill fansite, MySilentHill recently reached out to esteemed series composer Akira Yamaoka about his interest in returning to the series, and received quite the positive response. When asked whether or not he would compose music for Silent Hills, Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming entry in the series, Yamaoka said that he’d be happy to do so.

Yamaoka has said in the past that he would be willing to return to the series despite leaving Konami in 2009 (he did so briefly for Love Psalm in Book of Memories, and Silent Hill: Revelations), ostensibly working on a contractual basis, and his recent comment suggests that that offer still stands. Last week he tweeted about the abundance of messages from Silent Hill fans requesting his involvement in Silent Hills, and he stated that he has “read them all”

Akira Yamaoka also said the following to MySilentHill, perhaps suggesting that talks are in progress or he’s waiting to be asked, “It’s still undecided about it :)”.

It’s safe to say that 99% of Silent Hill fans want Yamaoka back. We’ll just have to wait and see if Konami and Kojima brings him back.

    That would be super, duper cool but it wouldn’t break my heart if he didn’t return. It’s cool to know he’s willing to do it if asked though.

    If he do return to make music for Silent Hills then i have no doubt in my mind that it will become the best Silent Hill game yet and one of the best horror games ever created.
    Probably will become one of the best games ever made in general.

    Since its going to be a huge change in franchise I think it’s best if he skips this one to see (and listen) what the new direction is capable of.

    I would laugh if they just used his previous soundtracks, and did not hire him again.

    I love his work, but whoever did the sound for p.t. Was incredible. The audio was excellent. I’m hoping they stick with whoever handled p.t. Personally. Change is good
