Silent Hill Book of Memories has been set to release in Japan on the most love-filled day of the year: Valentines Day. The Japanese release of the game will retail for 5,980 yen (around $70) and be available for download at 5,480 yen.
One thing that I am admiring about the Japanese release is the game’s cover art. I’m not sure if it’s by Masahiro Ito, but it looks pretty snazzy and I wouldn’t mind owning a copy.
Book of Memories arrives in Japan just three months after Silent Hill Downpour–which received a 31/40 from Famitsu. I wonder how Book of Memories will fare with Silent Hill‘s Japanese audience; will the game’s RPG direction be received better over there than it has in the West? Regardless, I still want that cover.
