Silent Hill hits... the arcade circuit?

Thank goodness for Google's translating abilities, else we'd probably shake our heads at these pictures and move on. Scroll about one-third of the way down and you'll see what we're talking about. What you're looking at is, undoubtedly, a Silent Hill arcade shooting title. While the translation is about as babble-free as that lovely brook outside of your uncle's country cabin (meaning it is full of it), we've gleaned a couple of things from this.

  • Two players! ...Of course.
  • Unlike most arcade shooters, you have 100 health (a la Wolfenstein, etc) to begin with instead of the two or three allowed hits.
  • Multiple endings and branching paths like House of the Dead titles.
  • Fight such familiar entities as freaky nurses, puppets, zombies (?), and Pyramid Head.

Will we see this thing stateside? Chances are low, but stranger things have happened. Does it go against the whole meaning behind Silent Hill, moving from psychological horror and into frantic shooting action? Probably. Still, it's worth noting just because we love Silent Hill so very much.
