Today, Konami aired a special Silent Hill transmission in which several new games were showcased. The presentation came 10 years after the last Silent Hill game released, at a time when Konami has largely stepped away from new game development. While today was a very good day for fans of Silent Hill, fans of Konami's Castlevania franchise are hoping it will receive a similar treatment in the near future. Konami has kept the franchise alive through compilation games over the last few years, but there hasn't been an actual new game in the series since Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which released all the way back in 2014.
The Castlevania franchise is easily one of Konami's biggest. The series began back in 1986, first releasing on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Since then, the series has been a staple of the video game industry, inspiring an animated Netflix adaptation, merchandise, and more. Konami clearly knows there's demand for the series, just as fans had been clamoring for a new Silent Hill game. For now, fans will just have to settle for compilations like Castlevania Anniversary Collection!

Silent Hill got its chance, now it's Castlevania's turn!
Now that Silent Hill is coming back, I really hope Konami puts out some new Castlevania games.— Terrell Rideoutt (@LuckLaforet) October 19, 2022
Hype will be off the charts!
if this Silent Hill stuff means that Konami might actually make a new Castlevania game in the near future, I want everyone that I will become the most annoying person on the planet after that hypothetical announcement— 🦇 𝕯𝖊𝖈𝖊𝖎𝖙 🦇 (@Oriciien) October 19, 2022

Even just some more ports would be nice.
Silent Hill is cool, but I need a new Castlevania. While we’re at it can we get Dawn of Sorrow, Order of Ecclesia, Lords of Shadow etc ports to current gen? Thanks.— Endymion (@EndymionYT) October 20, 2022
Don't think we've forgotten about Metal Gear, either.
Don't mind me, I'm just gonna be over here waiting till Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania to make a comeback the same way that Silent Hill came back.— Erik Flammond (@ErikAnimations) October 20, 2022

Pretty good news for Silent Hill fans. Man I wish Konami had something brewing for Castlevania.— Spooky Kooky Raz (@RazzlaMidazzla) October 20, 2022
