In a short Tweet on Twitter (X), Masahiro Ito announced that he was a monster designer for Silent Hill: The Short Message. The game is free-to-play on the PS5.
Ito is a video game artist who has worked on the Silent Hill games since 1999. He usually works on designs for monsters or the background, but he was also an art director for Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3. Aside from his work on Silent Hill: The Short Message, Masahiro Ito is also working on the Silent Hill 2 remake. Konami showed a trailer for that game as well.
Those who played the game have praised Ito for his design, with some even saying that they let the creature grab them a few times just to see more details of it. He also notes that he was only in charge of the design. Other members of the team worked on aspects such as the 3D model, textures, and animations.
Silent Hill: The Short Message appeared on January 31, 2024. It is a free-to-play title that Konami announced during the January 2024 State of Play showcase. Then, it immediately came out in the PSN as a free download. The story follows a girl named Anita, who is following messages that her friend Maya sent her. She seems to be looking for something, but a monster starts to stalk her.
Silent Hill: The Short Message is now available as a free download for the PS5.
