Konami Files New Silent Hill Trademark - Rely on Horror

Konami Files New Silent Hill Trademark

Silent Hill Trademark

It turns out the Silent Hill trademark is still kicking at Konami. On March 19th, the company (specifically¬†Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd.) filed an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for “Silent Hill” on an “intent-to-use” basis, meaning the series will live on. But how you ask?

The Silent Hill trademark was made for use with “electronic gaming machines, namely, devices which accept a wager.” This includes gambling machines, slot machines, bingo machines, lottery terminals, etc. P.T. is back baby; Pachinko Time!

Konami famously released a Silent Hill Pachinko game – HIT THE LEVEL –¬† in 2015. In it, we saw series icons James Sunderland and – HIT THE LEVEL – Pyramid Head doing uncharastically badass things, while the player confronted their inner gambling demons and the cold grip of capitalism on their souls. This news does not suggest that a traditional – HIT THE LEVEL – Silent Hill game is due anytime soon, so don’t get your hopes up. Although, this might mean that the – HIT THE LEVEL – Pachinko game released in 2015 might come stateside. Prepare for fear you can’t forget.
