The original artist Masahiro Ito has reimagined an enemy design from the original Silent Hill 2 in new concept art for the remake.
The world has been shown a new piece of concept art for the upcoming Silent Hill 2 remake. The artwork shows a novel take on a design for an enemy from the original Silent Hill game. The new enemy was created by the same artist who created the original monster.
In 2022, Konami announced a slew of new projects based on the survival horror franchise, dispelling virtually all rumors that the Silent Hill series would be revived. One of these was Bloober Team’s remake of Silent Hill 2, which featured some returning staff members from the original, including Masahiro Ito and Akira Yamaoka.
Now, the new artwork by Masahiro Ito shows a new take on the well-known Bubble Head Nurse. During the Game Invest Forum, the artwork was shared, highlighting the praise Bloober Team has received.
The brand-new artwork that was displayed alongside it showed a Bubble Head Nurse who had undergone a few cosmetic changes from the original game. This Bubble Head Nurse, for example, wears stockings with garters, whereas the original had bare legs, and she wears heels with ankle straps, whereas the original wore fairly flat shoes.
The artwork for Bubble Head Nurse is very similar to the one that was released with Silent Hill 2, with the exception of those differences. Numerous variants of the Bubble Head Nurses have appeared in subsequent games and artwork by Masahiro Ito over time.
In Silent Hill 2, on the other hand, they were intended to be a manifestation of a troubled conscience, so it makes sense to stay fairly close to the enemy’s original design. This artwork has been declared official by Ito himself, who pointed out that the slide flipped the image.
Based on what has been shown so far, it appears that the Silent Hill 2 remake is staying true to the original story and will not feature any new enemies. However, there are some minor adjustments, such as James Sunderland growing older.
However, given that Silent Hill 2 is widely regarded as an iconic survival horror classic, Bloober Team is most likely taking a long look at the situation before making any other significant changes. While trampling over one of the series’ best entries would not inspire confidence in a cautious fanbase, fans have been hoping for more for years.
Treating an existing game with the care and attention it deserves is basically a must if you want existing fans to join. Although the Silent Hills project is over, many fans still have negative feelings about its cancellation. The game’s monsters appear to be just as terrifying as ever, despite the fact that a lot has not been revealed.
